Our Uinta Transitional Living Program
Transitional Living at Wasatch Crest
What Is Transitional Living?
Wasatch Crest’s Uinta transitional living program offers clients the opportunity to continue working on their substance abuse recovery in a structured setting. Our men’s and women’s transitional living residences allow clients more independence while offering convenient access to therapeutic programming and medical care. During their stay, clients work on developing practical life skills, such as creating a resume, interviewing for jobs, and establishing credit.
When staying in our Uinta transitional living residences, clients attend our partial hospitalization program or our intensive outpatient program, which offer part-time treatment options with varying levels of therapeutic programming. Most clients begin in the partial hospitalization program, and then step down to our intensive outpatient program.
During their stay, clients have access to individual therapy as well as psychiatric and medical care. They also have the opportunity to participate in recreational therapy, mindfulness exercises, and service outings.
Gender-Specific Transitional Living at Wasatch Crest
Men and women experience addiction and approach recovery differently. At Wasatch Crest, our transitional living residences are separated by gender, so that male and female clients can heal according to their needs while surrounded by empathetic individuals of their same gender.
Women and Addiction
- Women develop substance dependence faster than men.
- Women also develop health issues as a result of substance use faster than men.
- Women are more likely to face mental health struggles (such as mood disorders, depression, PTSD, and anxiety) that co-occur alongside their addiction.
- Women report feeling higher rates of shame and guilt surrounding their substance use than men.
Wasatch Crest’s Uinta Women’s Transitional Living Program
Led by a compassionate team of women in long-term recovery, Wasatch Crest’s Uinta women’s transitional living program offers a healing alpine environment for women to further establish their recovery. The program integrates clients into a welcoming community to support them throughout their journey.
Men and Addiction
- Men are five times more likely than women to develop a substance use disorder.
- Men use alcohol and drugs in greater quantities than women.
- Binge drinking is more prevalent in men. Men generally start binge drinking at an earlier age than do women, as many male social rites of passage encourage excessive alcohol intake.
- Men often struggle with talking about their emotions and how to deal with them appropriately.
