Sober Living in South Philadelphia
Revival Transitional Living


Revival’s Sober Living Homes

As a sober living home, our transitional housing is for those who have recently received treatment for alcohol or substance abuse at an addiction treatment center and need an environment where professionals, who’ve been affected by addiction before, can teach them new skills and tactics to help prevent relapse when returning to their daily lives.

As of 2022, the rate of drug & alcohol relapse is above 80%. Relapse is not only extremely common, but the vast majority of people in recovery will experience relapse not just once, but multiple times.

Attending an addiction treatment center is a great path to take for ending substance use, however, it is not always the only step one needs to take.  A person’s living situation is often a large influence on them when it comes to being tempted with substance abuse.  It can be difficult to adapt when being thrown back into your old life immediately after treatment.  This is where transitional living comes into play.

What is Transitional Living?

Transitional living refers to any type of living situation where one is entering a new phase of their life. The primary purpose and mission of a transitional living environment is temporary, serving to support those who need help adjusting to new situations. Transitional living facilities often offer low cost housing,  provide professional support, education, and a stable living environment.

Common types of transitional living include transitioning from jail or prison, an addiction treatment center or a mental health facility.  They may also be available for homelessness, especially among youth.  Transitional living is provided by many well known private and non profit organizations, by government, churches and other charitable organizations.

Revival’s purpose in the recover process is to provide a comforting living space where you can apply tactics you learned through addiction treatment while living on your own.  We know addiction, and we understand a smooth and guided transition is needed to stay clean & sober for the rest of your life.

Our Process

Step 1: Phone Interview
If you feel as though sober living is right for you, contact us today via phone or contact form.  We will then schedule a phone interview.  During this phone interview, tell us about yourself, your background, and where you are on your road to recovery.  This will help us get to know you better for creating a road map for your recovery process and stay at Revival’s sober living homes.

Step 2: In-Person Assessment of Needs & Drug Screening
At the end of our phone interview, we will then schedule an in-person meeting.  The purpose of this meeting is to determine your needs for your stay at Revival and set recovery goals for yourself.  You will also have to undergo a drug screening at this time.

Step 3: Individualized Care Plan
No two stories of addiction are the same and it is very important each person is put under a care plan that will work for them.  We will use the information from your phone interview and in-person assessment to construct a plan catered specifically towards your needs for recovery.

Step 4: Progress Check
After your individualized care plan is complete, you will then be admitted into Revival’s sober living homes.  Occasionally, during your stay, we will sit down with you and have progress checks to see where you are mentally, your progress on your individualized care plan, and if there is anything else we can do to make you feel safe and at home.

Step 5: Discharge Plan
Nearing the end of your stay time, we will create a discharge plan based on the progress you made during your time at Revival.  The discharge plan is made to ensure your transition from Revival back your home will be the most effective in helping you stay sober and free from drug and alcohol abuse moving forward.
