Transitional Treatment is a critical time in an individual’s recovery, as they face temptations and
deal with situations using the relapse prevention skills learned in primary treatment.
This is when clients gain confidence in their ability to succeed and develop new habits and the support systems they need stay sober.
During this time, they benefit from evidence based counseling and professional support to help them get over rough spots and deal with set-backs. 

While in transitional treatment, clients go to work, look for a job, attend school and are in the community.
They return each evening for dinner, counseling, and to sleep. Our support staff is onsite 24 hours a day. 
Primary treatment is not required to receive transitional treatment.
Many clients have completed outpatient treatment,
but need a clean break from their environment and benefit from the counseling and support
as they practice their relapse prevention skills.

Call (608) 251-8881 for more information.

Up to 12 hours each week of evidence based counseling
Room and board – three meals per day

Primary treatment at the North Bay Lodge is intense and highly structured for individuals who have completed detox. Clients receive treatment, learn about their disease and learn skills to live a sober life.


After completing primary treatment they move on to transitional treatment at either North Bay Lodge (for both men and women) or Chris Farley House (men only). In transitional treatment clients get to practice the skills they learn while still receiving treatment and assistance while looking for stable housing and meaningful employment.



Even though a person is determined to succeed, has undergone therapy, learned sobriety skills and techniques, they still face struggles and can slip. People who have already gone through primary treatment and experience a relapse can receive help from Hope Haven just for transitional treatment.


Chris Farley House is home to 15 men receiving Transitional Treatment in a family setting.

During Transitional Treatment, each client creates his individual Relapse Prevention Plan and puts it into practice while going to work, attending school and being in the community. Each night he returns for group counseling, we provide 12 hours of evidence-based group counseling each week.

In addition, he receives three meals a day, 24-hour support from a professional counselor and assistance securing stable housing. To help them practice personal soft-skills, each
client has house responsibilities that benefit other residents.

If a client is unemployed and plans on staying in Dane County following treatment, he joins our Preparation for Employment program that helps him land a meaningful job. If he’s from out-of-county, he attends Preparation for Employment and works as a volunteer at one of our partner agencies, where he practices the skills of employment that help him obtain a job once he returns to his community.
