There is an assessment process by the clients key worker, to make sure the client is willing to partake in supported housing and further treatment. The 3rd stage of residential rehab is also known as tertiary rehab.
How does it work
Supported housing, or tertiary treatment is a follow on treatment from primary care or secondary care. It is where clients who want to carry on treatment (3rd stage) are placed in housing where they can carry on their treatment still using our rehab staff from the centre which they first did their treatment.

Supported housing for individuals with addiction refers to residential accommodations that provide a supportive and structured environment for individuals in recovery. These housing options aim to help individuals transition from treatment programs or homelessness to a stable living situation while receiving ongoing support.
Here are some key features of supported housing for addiction:
Safe and Stable Environment: Supported housing offers a safe and stable living environment for individuals in recovery. It provides a physical space where residents can focus on their sobriety and work towards rebuilding their lives.
Peer Support: Many supported housing programs foster a sense of community by bringing together individuals who are facing similar challenges in their recovery journey. Peer support can play a vital role in providing encouragement, understanding, and motivation.
Structure and Accountability: Supported housing programs often have rules and guidelines that residents must adhere to, promoting structure and accountability. This may include curfews, mandatory attendance at support group meetings, and participation in life skills development activities.
Case Management and Support Services: Residents of supported housing typically have access to case management services, which can include individualised support plans, assistance with finding employment or educational opportunities, and referrals to community resources for ongoing treatment and support.
Relapse Prevention: Supported housing programs often incorporate relapse prevention strategies and education to help residents develop coping skills, recognise triggers, and prevent relapse. This may involve workshops, counselling sessions, or group activities focused on relapse prevention techniques.
Skill Building: Many supported housing programs offer life skills training to help residents develop practical skills necessary for independent living. This can include budgeting, job readiness, time management, and problem-solving skills.
Gradual Transition: Supported housing serves as a stepping stone between intensive treatment programs or homelessness and independent living. The goal is to gradually transition individuals to greater levels of independence and self-sufficiency while providing ongoing support.
Access to Community Resources: Supported housing programs often have partnerships with community organszations, treatment providers, and employment services. This facilitates residents’ access to additional resources and support networks to aid in their recovery and reintegration into society.
Supported housing programs can vary in their structure, services offered, and duration of stay. It’s important to research and choose a reputable program that aligns with the individual’s specific needs and goals. Additionally, consulting with healthcare professionals, addiction specialists, or social workers can provide guidance on suitable supported housing options in a given area.
