Transitional recovery homes provide a safe environment to support recovery from substance abuse for those who are emerging from medical detox, residential treatment, jail, or off the street. A person’s home living environment often does not always provide the support necessary to facilitate long term sobriety. BRS manages multiple recovery homes and implements the necessary funding and programming to provide those in early recovery with the support needed to successfully transition back into the community. These homes provide a combination of freedom and structure that help the person begin to readjust to life in the real world.

Instead of immediately returning to the living situation that possibly fostered and facilitated the substance abuse issue, recovery homes provide a structured environment in which a person can continue to focus on recovery from substance use disorders. Recovery homes have rules and regulations that require participation in twelve-step programs, house meetings, meditations,  and other treatment programs that continue to reinforce the main proponents of long term recovery.​


The Recovery Process


We utilize the 12-step recovery model along with referrals to local treatment providers that, in combination with recovery housing, provides the best chance at successful lasting sobriety.
