THE TRANSITION PROBLEM
A person leaving treatment for drug or alcohol abuse will definitely find it hard to go back to their lives and stay sober.
In fact, according to statistics, 50% of recovering patients from alcohol and drug addiction will relapse during this transition.
In order to address the problem, sober and transitional living facilities have become a more integral part of the recovery process; to help bridge the gap between treatment and the return to normal living.
However, as sober living homes are largely unregulated, there are varying conditions and quality of accommodations and services.
We work collaboratively with Intensive Outpatient Programs, Addiction Treatment Centers, and Detox Facilities as an integral part of the treatment process. This cooperation with addiction treatment professionals enables us to optimize the transitional phase of treatment, and ensure that an individual is ready for the critical step of returning to their lives. Because the transition is seamless and tailored to the individual, the WeRECOVER LIFE program can significantly reduces relapse rates and increases the probability of successful long term recovery.
We hold residents accountable to their IOP’s treatment plan and the working of the 12 steps.

OUR RESIDENTS & ALUMNI
The comments below are just a sample of the hundreds of people
who have been transformed and are enjoying long term recovery.
Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for The Oaks house. Although I was resistant at first, the more I committed myself to the steps and recovery, the better my life got. My addiction took me from a successful young man full of promise, to an individual whose only options were to get sober, go to jail or die using. The Oaks house made getting sober possible and realistic for me. I will forever be indebted to them for what they have done for my life and the life of my family members.
I moved to California to get away from old people, places and things. I thought a change of scenery would help me stay sober but I quickly found out that I could not escape my problem, me. A life without using seemed meaningless and impossible. I was in a hopeless state and reluctant to do what they asked of me. I just didn’t believe God could help me and I was positive that nothing would save me. I’ve never been more grateful to be wrong. I thank God for placing me in this house because they provided a clear path to freedom from my addiction. Today, I’m sober, happy, and my life has meaning.
Moving into the Oaks House 3 1/2 months ago has been such a blessing. The warm and loving atmosphere is just what I was looking for; I felt like I was part of the family on my first day. The staff is committed to helping their clients build a program of recovery that is sustainable – so we can achieve long term sobriety. They brought me to meetings every day, helped me find a step guide, and got me into a really good Intensive Outpatient Program. They have introduced me to and helped me integrate with an amazing recovery community.
