When a person graduates from a residential treatment setting, they immediately begin to make choices that will shape their future. Upon leaving Olympia House, some clients choose to pursue independent living either alone, with friends, or with family and significant loved ones. Other graduates opt to move into a sober living environment (SLE) where they live in a supportive and somewhat structured environment with others in early recovery. In either situation, the individual usually begins to assume responsibility for maintaining order in their environment, supplying their own food, preparing their own meals, arranging their transportation, earning an income, and structuring many aspects of their daily life.
In some instances, it can be helpful during this transition for the individual to continue to receive an elevated level of support. In these cases, Olympia House provides fee-based case management services to assist them in rebuilding a sober, self-motivated, and independent life integrated with the outside community.
