ABOUT HEALING TRANSITIONS – WOMEN’S CAMPUS
Formerly known as The Healing Place of Wake County, Healing Transitions is a nonprofit rehab located in Raleigh, N.C. The treatment center specializes in providing peer-based recovery services to homeless and underserved adults struggling with addiction. Healing Transitions offers a full continuum of care, including non-medical detox, family services, overnight emergency shelter, outpatient treatment, and gender-specific residential treatment at its four Raleigh locations. In addition, the rehab provides assessments for courts, full DWI services, and private case management.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The women’s facility, located near the Raleigh-Durham airport, offers a 12-step oriented, peer-run social model recovery program in order to inspire homeless individuals to obtain a meaningful and productive life. It also offers non-medical detoxification services 24/7.
To enter the recovery program, clients must be at least 18 years old, homeless, and a resident of Wake County. The program typically lasts between 12 and 18 months and consists of four phases: Motivation and Engagement, Commit to Recovery I, Commit to Recovery II, and Healing Transitions Alumni. As individuals move through the program they are given more responsibility and privileges. Participants are required to attend Recovery Dynamics classes and 12-step meetings throughout the entirety of their program.
To become a Healing Transitions alum, one must meet all goals and assignments of each prior phase. This means finding a job, turning in a weekly budget, volunteering at Healing Transitions for at least 30 days, and finding a place to live. Alumni can visit the facility 24/7, where they can get meals, teach classes, and take part in community meetings.
The facility’s treatment team is led by a licensed social worker and certified substance abuse counselor.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
At first, living arrangement in the women’s program are simple. Participants get a bed to sleep and a place to store their personal belongings. By the end of the program, participants have a two-person room with a bathroom, three daily meals at the facility, a SafeLink cell phone for employment and housing purposes, a midnight curfew (later on the weekends), and daily use of a laundry room. They also get access to exercise equipment, TV, and books.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni reviews are scarce, but are overall positive and suggest the facility provides highly effective treatment. Karan, an alum polled by Rehabs.com, provided five-star ratings in multiple categories, including staff support and the quality of individual and group counseling. “This facility addressed my character defects along with the addiction go to the web site and go take a tour to see for yourself. I have been sober/clean 3 yrs,” Karan wrote in 2014. Two additional alumni gave five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meals. “This place was all that I need, because it change my life , I finish the 12 step program and today I'm clean and sober for 3years,” Gwendolyn wrote.
Although the facility received three positive reviews from alumni, one additional alumni gave only one out of five stars for treatment effectiveness, accommodations, and meals. “Absolute worst and unfair treatment,” M.R. wrote to Rehabs.com.
The facility’s Facebook page, which may be vetted by the facility, boasts positive reviews, averaging 4.9 out of five stars based on 35 reviews. “This place and their people genuinely care about you and your recovery,” Natasha wrote to Facebook in December 2016.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Reviews from loved ones are also limited but what is available is mixed with one overall positive and two negative. Gwen, the child of a former client, gave high marks for quality of treatment and family involvement, despite her mother’s later relapse.
Another anonymous loved one of a former client gave only two out of five stars for treatment effectiveness and one out of five stars for counseling options and staff experience. P.M., another loved one, wrote in a representative review “When I dropped my granddaughter off at Healing Transitions, no one ever sat down with us to answer our many questions, and now I am working hard to get her out of that place.”
Proceeds from the facility’s thrift store, called Recovered Treasures, as well as donations, fund Healing Transitions’ programs. As a result, services are free to participants.
