Clinically-driven, recovery-based sober living program for young men
Inpatient addiction treatment, Raleigh, NC

Build a Life in Recovery

Residents in our transitional living program typically complete inpatient treatment or wilderness therapy prior to starting at Green Hill. Our program provides structure and support as residents build the foundations of their recovery and shift into ‘real-life.’ We believe that having fun is essential to the recovery process, and we provide ample opportunities for young men to explore their passions. However, we’re not a summer camp. Our program focuses on finding a healthy balance between fun and personal growth.

Leading a life of purpose is a journey, not a destination. We provide our residents with structure and coaching as they return to school, work, and dating. The Green Hill team knows that early recovery is full of challenges and opportunities. We believe that building a well-rounded, values-focused individual is critical to achieving lasting recovery.

Transitional Living Program Overview

Transitional living in Addiction Treatment
Green Hill’s transitional living program is for young men in their first year of recovery from substance use and mental health disorders. We believe in front-loading recovery, meaning our team will put a heavy emphasis on providing residents with structure and guidance during the first few months. As our residents begin working, going to school, and providing a self-directed structure, they will be given increasing amounts of autonomy. Residents who complete our program will be equipped to navigate their academic and professional lives while living in a values-based, recovery-focused manner.


Recovery at Green Hill begins with deep connection to the community and an understanding of the recovery process. Residents take a look at their past, come to terms with their substance use, and begin defining what an abundant life in recovery entails.



Develop thorough understanding of substance use. Demonstrate positive communication techniques. Learn effective coping skills.


Develop personal history file. Explore personal goals, strengths, and preferences. Identify objectives for academic and/or career growth.

Discover a Full and Purposeful Life with Structured Sober Living

Recovery is, in part, about rediscovering fun. Our sober living residents can expect to stay busy during their recovery process by exploring all the culture and entertainment Raleigh has to offer.

We offer opportunities, such as hiking on nature trails, joining intramural sports teams and going on trips such as snowboarding or whitewater rafting. Green Hill Transitional Living makes sure a life in recovery will never leave you bored.

Whether finishing high school, applying to college, or continuing a degree, we provide individualized academic counseling and dedicated study halls to push residents forward in their scholastic journey. Others may focus on their career progress. Our team blends recovery and professional growth through career coaching and networking opportunities.

Therapy to Lead to a Better Life

Recovery should never hold you back. Green Hill’s transitional living program is driven through a therapeutic lens: we provide group, individual, and family counseling to support our structured sober living residents and their families through the recovery process. Whether it’s applying to schools, navigating relationships, or exploring new hobbies, we view these as great opportunities for personal growth.

Our clinical team takes a holistic, clinically-informed approach to therapy that leans heavily on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), trauma-informed therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions to meet the individual needs of our residents. The therapeutic experience at Green Hill helps our residents to discover their values and goals, empowers them to build self-efficacy, and connects them to an integrated way of life.
