If you are having a hard time finding an affordable, stable and loving family home to call home, you might want to check out the many options that are available through the Bradford Health Services. They serve the entire area of Union Springs, with a centralized office in Lithia Springs. So what exactly does a transitional living facility entail? The transitional living facility offers services for families experiencing the effects of crisis or permanent change. The term “transitional” simply describes the services offered to residents; they range from detoxification, to education and counseling, to aftercare support groups. The goal of the staff at the Bradford Health Services is to ensure that their clients get the care and support they need to survive, while assisting them to transition into a healthier life.
There are a number of transitional housing programs that are offered by the Bradford Health Services. One of these is The Boxed House. This five-story building is home to over 100 individuals who have either been receiving mental health services or alcohol services, or both. It is run through the Christian rehabilitation movement and offers housing, programs and activities to those who have experienced a trauma, addiction, crisis or situation that has impacted their lives. It is a safe environment for clients to learn how to manage and control their issues without succumbing to the temptation of alcohol or drugs.
Another transitional house is called The Boxed House Foundation. This facility offers services to families experiencing the crisis and or transition to adulthood. A parent can attend a program run in conjunction with the local schools, learn parenting skills, prepare their children for school, and take custody of the children during the day. At night, the facility offers supervised educational programs that teach parenting skills, self-esteem building techniques, anger management, and healthy conflict resolution techniques. Services also include a halfway house that houses young adults between the end of their alcohol or drug treatment programs and when they have completed their transition into a new phase of their life.
