Life’s Journey operates a network of 15 transitional care and sober living homes in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Life’s Journey opened its first men’s facility 15 years ago and its first women’s facility in 2014. It often houses clients while they complete treatment at local Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP). It also has a number of designated sober living houses for clients who’ve completed treatment and have demonstrated sobriety. Clients can stay at Life’s Journey anywhere from one month up to two years.
Accommodations and Amenities
The homes are located near each other in suburban areas of Bucks County, mostly in and around Levittown. The homes have a pleasant, modern décor with common areas for TV and games.
Several of the homes also have gym equipment, and all are in walking distance to public transportation and 12-step fellowship meetings. Clients have roommates and are responsible for their own grocery shopping and meal preparation.
Rules and Regulations
In Phases One and Two, when clients are enrolled in PHP and IOP treatment, they are required to attend daily 12-step meetings. In Phase Three, or the sober living homes, clients must attend at least four 12-step meetings each week. Phase One and Two clients have a 12 am curfew on weekdays and 2 am on weekends; Phase Three residents have no curfew.
Clients are permitted cell phones and laptops at each phase. All residents have chore assignments and must be engaged in work, school or volunteering after they complete their PHP or IOP treatment.
While most clients have a local treatment team in place before entering Life’s Journey, the house managers can help clients find additional treatment, peer support meetings and medical care when needed. Life’s Journey also facilitates job searches and has relationships with many area employers.
Many clients purchase memberships to the local YMCA, in walking distance to most of the residences. In Phase 2, residents can visit family members once a week and can have weekly visits in Phase 3. Family members can also visit clients at their residence throughout the week.
Life’s Journey has been helping men and women transition from treatment to independent living in recovery for over a decade. It has close relationships with many local residential and outpatient programs and is known as a welcoming and supportive option for clients with limited resources and support systems.
