Beyond The Basics
Transitional Living Program

Beyond The Basics Mission

Beyond The Basics Transitional Living Program is a transition program that follows either the Back2Basics Residential Treatment Program or a similar program. Focusing on transitioning our clients into ‘real life’, we provide for the groundwork to gradually transition our clients from rehabilitation and recovery into living real life with long-term sobriety.

While the programs are sequential, the Beyond the Basics program is not required and our Back2Basics clients must apply and express the desire to continue. This leads our clients to take ownership of their decision and commit to their sobriety success. Most of our Back2Basics graduates choose to continue on to Beyond the Basics.

Beyond The Basics Program


Our Back2Basics program, or a similar foundational recovery program, is a prerequisite for entry into Beyond the Basics. Our Back2Basics clients must express a desire and commitment to really want to continue with their treatment and recovery through Beyond the Basics.


Client candidates are evaluated to see if they are the best fit for the program and to meet our specific program demographics, as well as ensuring that Beyond the Basics is the right transitional program for them.

Program Foundation

Like Back2Basics, our Beyond the Basics program is founded upon three critical components.

Therapeutic Counseling

Continuation with therapeutic counseling as a key recovery foundation and part of the life-long journey to staying sober.

Group Adventure Trips

Beyond the Basics clients create a monthly budget and they decide what they want to do for outings.

Transitional Living

A program with less restrictions, boundaries and curfews. Gradual transition into ‘real life’.

Daily Living

Beyond the Basics has its own campus separate from Back2Basics. They do integrate some activities with the Back2Basics group throughout the week (dinner, group discussions, etc.) to provide for a mentoring opportunity of Beyond the Basics to the clients in Back2Basics as well as provide an opportunity for the Beyond group to realize their progress. However, they have their own program as outlined above and many of our clients also participate in school and work activities during this period. (Take a Virtual Tour)

Beyond Transition

As clients progress gradually through the Beyond the Basics program, they are working towards transitioning into ‘real life’. We do not ‘graduate’ clients at the completion as this represents a finality and recovery is never final. It is a life-long journey. When clients conclude the Beyond the Basics program we have a ‘launch’ celebration (family members are welcome to participate) as they launch back into real life.


Once our clients leave the Beyond the Basics program, they stay in touch for continued support and communicate with us regularly as needed.  Many of our clients stay on board with Beyond the Basics to participate in our Intern program on our Outdoor Team or other Program Teams.

Beyond the Basics Principles

  • Accountability – clients must meet their obligations to not only life beyond the transition house (work, school, etc.), but also their responsibilities to the house and community (cleanliness, curfew, etc.)
  • Integrity – clients will be coached to be men of their word. They will be required to show up for their own lives and recovery (meeting attendance, sponsorship, etc.)
  • Leadership – Clients will be asked to develop self-motivation and be willing to take positions of leadership within the community.
  • Self-support – Clients will be coached to practice financial accountability and management. One of the principle goals of a clients’ stay is to be entirely financially independent upon exit.
  • Transparency – Mistakes are opportunities for clients to learn. We allow the space for our clients to utilize their own decision making skills. We demand client to be open to processing both successes and failures with staff and their therapists. Transparency provides an environment where staff and clients can problem solve together free of judgement.
