A division of the Connecticut-based Community Mental Health Affiliates (CMHA), Transitional Living Center (TLC) provides sober living support for adults who have recently received psychiatric treatment. Based in New Britain, Connecticut, which is about 13 miles south of Hartford, the residential facility offers an alternative for individuals who, without guidance and supervision, would require hospitalization.

In addition to helping clients maintain regular appointments, staff work with residents in areas including personal care, money management, socialization, housekeeping, education, and employment. Clients also participate in activities and groups dedicated to symptom management for mental illness and/or substance use disorder.

As clients gain and strengthen life skills, they are granted more responsibility and independence. Eventually, clients are provided with a personalized discharge plan. TLC is also one of the 122 (55 percent) Connecticut facilities to offer housing assistance.
