Research indicates that the longer individuals remain in treatment for mental health and co-occurring disorders, the better their chances for long-term recovery and the lower their risk for relapse. Mental health occurs on a spectrum from mild to severe, so a range of treatment options are needed to treat the varying needs of each individual.
Rose Hill Center is recognized as one of the nation’s leaders in long-term residential mental health treatment, catering to the needs of individuals with severe mental health and co-occurring disorders. Among the services we offer are transitional living options in Holly, Michigan, to help graduates of our residential or co-occurring rehabilitation programs transition to independent living.

Is Transitional Living Right for Me?
Transitional living can be right for you if you have met your goals in residential or co-occurring rehabilitation programs and no longer require 24/7 supervision. Ideal candidates for transitional living services can demonstrate stability. They are prepared for more responsibility but can still benefit from a structured environment with some staff supervision.
A Look at Transitional Living Benefits
Transitional living services can have a profound impact on long-term mental health recovery. Many individuals who return directly to their home environment following residential treatment are not equipped to manage their independence. Going from a highly structured, supervised environment to being entirely on their own often results in a relapse that requires a return to residential treatment.
In addition to helping reduce the risk of relapse, transitional living benefits include:
- On-site support and the opportunity to create new support networks in the larger community
- Structure to facilitate developing daily routines
- The support of like-minded peers with similar goals
- Reconnection with family and friends
- Access to medical and clinical support
- Development of accountability to self and others
- Regularly scheduled group and support meetings
- A safe and stable environment away from negative influences
- Weekly activities
Residents in transitional living have full access to facilities and amenities on our beautiful 400-acre rural campus and off-campus amenities. With staff support, residents develop a sense of independence and learn to become productive members of the community while fostering the development of essential life skills and increased self-esteem and self-worth.
What to Expect from Rose Hill Center’s Transitional Living Services
Residents in our transitional living services reside in townhouses on campus. Our townhouses replicate a more traditional living environment. Residents have one or two roommates who are going through a similar transition. They must participate in meaningful daily activities such as volunteering, paid employment, or school, all of which are easily accessible.
Developing a routine is critical to success in mental health treatment, so residents in our transitional living program must also participate in scheduled weekly activities, including individual counseling, group therapy, and recreational activities. Meals, activities, and other services occur on a set schedule to promote stability.
Transitional living residents receive mentoring, coaching, and life skills training through:
- Meal planning and preparation
- Grocery shopping
- Medication management
- Regular group and support meetings
- Help with insurance and managing health benefits
- Finances and budgeting
- Hygiene and self-care
- Household chores
Having a private space to call home while learning to become more independent gives residents a sense of freedom and empowerment. Sharing the house with others fosters the development of relationship skills, communication skills, and problem-solving skills.
