Based upon each individual’s alcohol and other drugs needs assessment, we can work with them to assist them in identifying where they need to be on the continuum and which location would work best for them to give them best opportunity for successful recovery.

Our staff is a group of caring and concerned professionals with who understand the devastating effects from substance use disorder with the individual, the family unit, and all those that care for the person seeking treatment.

Transitional Living

(530) 626-9240


Progress House Transitional Living Program is a program designed to offer individuals who are newly recovering a safe, supportive, sober living environment. Often, in early recovery, a safe place to live while continuing outpatient counseling and gaining further education and/or joining the workforce is extremely beneficial. The convenience of having a safe place to live while being supported and supporting others in a similar situation dramatically enhances the statistics for long-term sobriety.

We currently have five transitional living homes, three for men and two for women. The women may be accompanied by their minor children in transitional living. These are fully furnished residential homes that are shared by individuals practicing their new recovery skills. Residents attend outpatient services, participate in 12-step meetings and share in household chores while working or attending school.

Residents may stay in the transitional living program for up to one year. All of our homes are registered through California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP).
