Transitional Housing

Akeela recognizes the need for low-cost, clean and sober housing for recovering substance abusers who are transitioning from substance abuse treatment to life in the community. Locating safe, clean, and sober housing is a key to long term sobriety. Akeela has addressed that need by providing 11 sleeping-room-only units attached to the Therapeutic Community program. In addition, the program has 13 two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment. Akeela’s Transitional Housing is available for two years post treatment in order to assist recovering people to re-establish themselves in the community in a low-cost and safe environment. It is designed to help them become steadier in their sobriety and better able to withstand social pressures to relapse and become established in a job that will adequately support them and their families.
