ABOUT HEALING TRANSITIONS – MEN’S CAMPUS

Founded in 2001 and located in Raleigh, N.C., Healing Transitions is a private nonprofit facility, which make up about 39 percent of all North Carolina treatment centers; it is one of the 76 (16.1 percent) of North Carolina facilities that offers residential treatment services. The center provides peer-based recovery services to homeless and underserved individuals struggling with addiction.

The facility provides a continuum of care, including non-medical detox (two-five days), family services, and overnight emergency shelter. Outpatient services are offered at the North Raleigh location. The rehab also provides assessments for the courts, full DWI services, and private case management.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to Healing Transitions' website, the men’s facility, located between North Carolina State University and downtown, offers a 12-Step oriented, peer-run social model recovery program to inspire participants to obtain a meaningful and productive life. The treatment center is one of the 328 (69.5 percent) of North Carolina facilities that offers 12-step programming.

To participate, clients must be at least 18 years old, homeless, and a Wake County resident. The program typically lasts between 12 and 18 months and consists of five phases: Motivation and Engagement Track I and II, Commit to Recovery I and II, and Healing Transitions Alumni.

As individuals move through the program, they receive more responsibility and privileges, such as fewer check-ins, more phone time, and opportunity to attend off-site 12-Step meetings at night. Participants are required to attend Recovery Dynamics classes and 12-Step meetings throughout the entirety of their program** — eventually obtaining a sponsor and taking part in a home group.

To become an 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.**

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Healing Transitions employs substance abuse counselors, a development coordinator, and a recovery and family resource specialist.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

At first, living arrangements in the 180-bed program are simple. Participants get a bed, place to store their personal belongings, and breakfast and dinner at the facility each day (lunch is at the soup kitchen). 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, midnight curfew (later on weekends), and daily use of a laundry room. They also get access to exercise equipment, TV, and books. The six individuals polled by Rehabs.com gave mixed feedback for accommodations and amenities.

Accommodations & amenities: 3.7/5

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Feedback from three former clients is varied. On the positive end, Jesse told Rehabs.com that a strength was the facility's community process, non-medical model. Another plus was the free treatment. “The Healing place is a peer based recovery program and is free of charge. It takes a lot of work but so does addiction… It's a program not for those that want it but for those that are wiling to do the work.” Another alum, who gave maximum five-star ratings to 13 of 15 evaluated categories including holistic offerings and affordability, agreed."Community was a strength. it was affective and fun,” they wrote.

However, J.D.F., who gave one star for treatment effectiveness, noted the facility lied about statistics. "They claim to base there statistics on number of client\'s sober after a year of completion but I can say, as an alumni, who can count on one hand the number of people who actually stay sober," they wrote.

To date, the 76 people to leave reviews on its Facebook page, which it has the ability to manage, gave an average of 4.9 out of five stars, and positive feedback. "The Healing Transitions saved my life. I will always be greatful.. The people/ Staff are the best it's the best program. Thank you for the expierence , strength and Hope," an alum wrote in a representative review. [1]

The 20 people to leave Google Reviews also gave positive opinions about the center, and an average of 4.3 out of five stars. "Helped me stay sober and in recovery," Jaimie wrote in a representative review on Google. [2]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The five loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave mixed feedback for Healing Transitions. Two individuals praised the facility for providing free treatment.

"This place is free and if you want to get threw it with tough love then this is your place. But every morning you get up and are made to walk to your a.a. or n.a. classes threw a drug riddled neighborhood," a loved one wrote in a mixed review.

Yet, K.A., whose son participated in the program, gave perfect five out of five stars for leadership and staff support, and four for overall effectiveness. K.A. considered the program inspirational. “The only thing that should change is providing exercise and good social involvement," they wrote. "The ability for the clients to see healthy sober fun activities to be involved with.”

FINANCING

There is no cost to receive services. Proceeds from the Recovered Treasures thrift store fund the facility's operating costs.

I believe that posting my true identity on this page will endanger me. This facility does not show true statistics of success. They claim to base there statistics on number of client's sober after a year of completion but I can say, as an alumni, who can count on one hand the number of people who actually stay sober, there statistics are false. They show favoritism to certain clients while ignoring others. There is extreme double standards and the women's issues are consistently ignored. On a personal note I can say this facility ruined my life and yes, I did finish "successfully."

Its free. They make you walk a long way to your classes threw a drug neighborhood and this is all while you are in withdrawal and sick. This place is free and if you want to get threw it with tough love then this is your place. But every morning you get up and are made to walk to your a.a. or n.a. classes threw a drug riddled neighborhood.
