Reintegrating into society following addiction treatment can be challenging. Excitement for the road ahead is tempered with natural anxieties – how will I make recovery work for me in real life? There are many unknowns. New strategies, routines, and relationships are still settling into place. Early recovery is a critical stage with an unfortunately high risk for relapse as newly developed coping skills are put to the test.
Northbound supports clients in learning how to navigate life after treatment through transitional living services in Orange County and beyond. Through these programs, our clients engage in education, therapy, life skills training, support groups, drug and alcohol testing, and more to continue building a solid foundation for their improved lifestyle.
Life After Addiction Rehab – How Transitional Programs Work
Transitional programs help to bridge the gap between treatment and a stable life in recovery. They give clients the guidance and support they need to get back on their feet and cope with real world challenges in a safe, healthy way. In transitional living programs, clients build confidence and focusing on building a comprehensive, fulfilling recovery lifestyle.
Northbound’s Transitional Living options include our Collegebound and Careerbound® programs as well as Sober Living placement assistance, all of which can be participated in along with any of our outpatient programs. Specialty clinical offerings distinguish each program, along with continued foundational services including therapy and psychiatric services, drug and alcohol testing, and 12-Step immersion. Our clients are empowered to make healthy decisions and set themselves up for success. They receive the support they need to rebuild their lives and continue with the progress they made during treatment.
Collegebound: Addiction Rehab for Young Adults
Northbound’s Collegebound program, supports those interested in pursuing their education while developing a thriving lifestyle of recovery.

Clients who choose to participate in this signature service receive educational coaching and ongoing support, tutoring, supervised study time, assistance applying for school, course selection mentoring, and help navigating transcripts and logistical issues with previous learning institutions.
