Transitional Living: Addiction Treatment in Bellevue, Washington


Our program at Hotel California by the Sea prioritizes long term fully-supported recovery for the clients that attend our drug and alcohol rehab center. For this reason, we offer exclusive transitional living homes to those who are in our addiction outpatient program in Bellevue, Washington.

Many of our incredible clients transition from our detoxification programs or other separate residential programs to our outpatient program. In our outpatient program, clients have the opportunity to stay in one of our transitional living homes for people in recovery or live at home.

However, returning to the environment that a client was in before they began treatment at HCBTS can sometimes prove detrimental to their recovery. For this reason, case managers and the clinical team at HCBTS may recommend that certain clients stay at one of our transitional living homes while receiving outpatient treatment.

Lack of a stable, alcohol and drug free living environment can be a serious obstacle to sustained abstinence. Destructive living environments can derail recovery for even highly motivated individuals. Sober living houses (SLHs) are alcohol and drug free living environments for individuals attempting to abstain from alcohol and drugs.  They are often the next step from those who complete a residential treatment program.

These transitional living homes, or sober livings, are in high demand. Therefore, we only open our homes to clients who are attending Hotel California by the Sea, Bellevue’s outpatient programs, and fit the requirements for a resident.

Sober transitional living is not just a place to live when you are working your outpatient treatment program with Hotel California by the Sea-Bellevue, Washington.  It is a supervised, transitional living arrangement that will assist you in continuing with your recovery, helping make an even more successful treatment plan for a client.
