Sober Living in South Philadelphia
Revival Transitional Living


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 target homelessness, especially among youth. Transitional living is provided by many well known private and non profit organizations, by government, churches and other charitable organizations.

What does Revival Offer?

Revival is a sober living home.  Our transitional housing is for those who have recently received treatment for alcohol or substance abuse and need an environment where professionals can teach them new skills and tactics to help prevent relapse.

Relapse is a lot more common than you may think.  In fact, a majority of people who have received addiction treatment will relapse not only once, but multiple times.

Why is this?  Addiction treatment centers are a great help for ending substance use.  However, living situations are often a large influence on drug use to begin with.  It can be difficult to adapt when being thrown back into your old life immediately after treatment.

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

Let’s take the first step towards getting you or your loved one the transitional living experience they deserve. Call us today or fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page and we’ll be happy to reach out to you

We will begin by scheduling a phone interview to get to know you, understand your needs and answer any questions you may have. After you are approved to proceed, the next step is an in-person assessment and a drug screening. This process helps ensure we know how we can best be of service to you and your recovery process.

The assessment also allows us to work together to set goals for your time here and develop an individualized care plan for you. While recovering people face many of the same challenges, each has a unique set of circumstances. Getting to know you better helps ensure you get the plan that will best meet your needs.

As you progress in the program, we’ll check in with you along the way. We will use this time to help determine if you are reaching the goals we set together and what else we can do to support your success in recovery. When you’re done with your stay, we’ll provide you with a personalized discharge plan to help you stay clean and sober and stay connected to resources that will help.
