Experience Clean and Sober Living

The purpose of Wellington Retreat Transitional Living is to give individuals in recovery  a chance to live, work, and attend AA/NA meetings in a clean and sober environment surrounded by supportive people.  Our residential community is dedicated to our patients who suffer from addiction and psychiatric disorders. With a rehabilitative approach, our residential setting provides a warm and comfortable home where residents can stabilize, learn to manage their illness, and live a better life.

Our transitional housing program is based on the Twelve Step philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Our townhomes are located in Lake Worth, Florida. Men and women have separate sober housing.  Our transitional housing is a level system based program where privileges such as cell phones, computers, vehicles and weekend passes are earned.

It’s important that people in recovery have every opportunity to be successful. We believe in structure and agree that people who work a 12-Step program and live in a clean and sober housing environment have a much better chance at achieving long-term sobriety.  Our goal is that everyone in our community supports one another to achieve a healthy life. Transitional Living works!

“How it Works”

Wellington Retreat Transitional Living homes are tastefully furnished to provide the highest level of comfort.  Weekly fees for living at our townhomes are $175 a week.  All residents are required to pay for their own food. The weekly fee covers all utilities, cable, local telephone, bedding, towels, kitchen appliances and basic cleaning supplies.  Each resident has a separate room and is required to keep their room and the common area clean, organized and maintained.  Any damage to the townhome is the responsibility of the resident.

“It Works if you Work it”

You are required to get a job and a sponsor within two weeks of moving into transitional living.  We require a $500 payment in advance, which allows you time to find a job.  The payment covers your rent and food expenses for two weeks. You will need to make financial arrangements prior to moving into transitional living. Our role is a supportive one and to help you continue your journey to a healthy life.  Our townhomes are very close to markets, AA/NA meetings, shops, restaurants and public transportation. Our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We will assist you in finding a job and transporting you to interviews until you can get a bus pass.  We support continuing education. We provide transportation to meetings and to clinical. We support and help you make healthy choices and more importantly get your life back on track.

“Keep It Simple”

Transitional Living differs from a halfway house.  We have staff on the property 24/7 and assist you in maintaining your commitment to living healthy.  Our staff has many years of recovery and we understand what you are going through because we have been there ourselves. We are committed to our recovery and to yours. Our common goal at Wellington Retreat is to help you live the life you deserve. We treat our patients with dignity, respect and the up most compassion.
