0 Reviews

Transitions is a non-profit charity, that provides substance abuse treatment. Transitions offer women and men a holistic continuum of care comprised of non-medical detoxification, residential substance abuse treatment, outpatient substance abuse treatment, and supportive housing. Transitions is located at Covington, Kentucky.

Transitions Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

What does Transitions offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs. Their intensive outpatient program offers group and individual counseling, education and relapse prevention training to men and women over a 6-8 month period.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Transitions provides residential treatment to Kentucky residents who cannot obtain it elsewhere. They offer a 90-day program for men, and a 3-9 month program for women that allows their children ages 12 and under to accompany them. The women’s program accepts pregnant women and women with or without children. The residential treatment includes exposure to self-help groups, a relapse prevention approach, employment, community service and aftercare counseling.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Life Skills

Individual and group counseling is offered in all agency programs. They also help clients with basic life skills, budgeting, employment readiness, and many other topics important to recovery. All clients eligible to work are required to do so. Clients also give back to others by performing community service.

Transitions Highlights:

They provide men and women with a safe place to stabilize and withdraw from alcohol or other drugs. Staff monitor the withdrawal process and have access to medical personnel. Clients are introduced to selfhelp groups and referred for further treatment. The unit admits Kentucky residents 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, when space is available.
Their Residential and Outpatient Programs (WRAP, Droege, and IOP) follow evidence-based practices. These practices indicate that providing individualized treatment is most successful when intervening with individuals with a Substance Use Disorder.
Transitions provides halfway house services to men and women making the transition from close supervision to responsible community living. Substance abuse treatment is made available to those who need it. Two facilities also operate a Drug Aftercare Program for federal offenders with a history of substance abuse.
