Transitional Living at The Haven

Please watch this quick video about our Transitional Living Program at The Haven at Pismo.


Throughout your recovery journey, we can be the home you are looking for. We recognize the incredibly challenging process of addiction recovery, and we work to provide a space that fosters the sort of healing you need during your life-saving change. When finishing a detox program, or leaving residential treatment, it is important to have a plan of where you are going to go after. Some find if they return home with little thought, they are reentering an environment rife with their previous stressors and triggers endangering their recovery.

This is exactly why transitional living options exist to help sustain your progress until you feel ready to reintroduce yourself to scenarios that require long-term self-control. The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health did a study on how transitional living situations can help lower readmissions and relapses, and recognize that this transition period is crucial to long-term sobriety.


The Haven’s Transitional Living is a structured environment where guests are accountable to their housemates and the on-site house manager. This allows you to recover and build your lifestyle around having healthy routines and practicing doing so with others in the same situation. Our clients follow designated procedures and agree to a lifestyle covenant to show their commitment to changing their lives. In exchange for this adherence, they can enjoy amenity-rich surroundings where they live out what they’ve learned in recovery and begin to fully embrace a substance-free lifestyle. Most importantly, The Haven at Pismo Transitional Living program presents a unique opportunity for Haven clients to gradually implement best practices learned at The Haven residences in a real-world environment.
