Skyland Trail offers transitional living apartments on the Skyland Trail North campus where clients live on their own with moderate support from our staff. Skyland Trail North includes 13, two-bedroom apartments. Transitional clients have a private bedroom, and share a bathroom and living area with another client. Skyland Trail North also includes community living areas, a community dining room and kitchen, and gardens.
Clients may live in transitional housing at Skyland Trail North while in the Day Treatment or Intensive Outpatient programs. Residential clients may not live in transitional housing. Note that space in our transitional housing program is limited. Not all clients will qualify for our transitional housing program. Clients in our dual diagnosis program or those with a history of substance use cannot be safely supported in our transitional housing program and will be referred to a third party recovery residence or sober living community.
All clients in our transitional living program must also participate in our Independence Coaching Program. An independence coach visits clients in their apartments at least once each week (more frequently if needed) to ensure clients are successfully adjusting to independent living and are taking their medications appropriately. The coach also provides assistance with practical matters like paying bills, planning transportation, accessing community resources and making and sticking to a schedule.
Clients in transitional housing may enroll in additional outpatient programs. The Life Enrichment Adult Program (LEAP) provides regular socialization opportunities that help clients meet new friends, develop relationships and grow in their sense of self-worth and belonging. LEAP activities include support groups, book clubs, art and music lessons, group fitness and recreation, and outings in the community such as sports events, concerts and museum visits. Transitional clients may also be interested in vocational services, outpatient DBT, or primary care services through the Glenn Family Wellness Clinic.
