Carinya Transitional Living Program

Departure from Watershed marks an important milestone in our client’s recovery journey, but it is by no means the end of our support. When a client is ready to resume their responsibilities of everyday life, our treatment team will develop and facilitate their continuing care plan. As always, our primary focus is on a smooth transition into long-term recovery, which could even include our continuing care environment – the Carinya Transitional Living Program.


The transition from a 24hr supported residential program isolated from the mainstream can be a difficult time for many clients. Carinya is a supported accommodation program designed to allow for a successful progression to independent living.

By creating structures, processes and graduated levels of responsibility, the program at Carinya actively supports those clients that need further supported assistance to face the challenges associated with returning to their families and the community in general.

The program has an educational and living skills focus that looks at individual issues around relapse prevention. The approach is a holistic one which includes comprehensive individual treatment planning to assist clients (and their families) to build recovery-based lifestyles. Topics covered include:

  • Relapse prevention skills.
  • Relationships and social skills.
  • Life skills.
  • Stress management.
  • Communications.
  • Relaxation techniques.

The program also works at establishing a support network within the general community and the welfare field in order to build a resource base for clients.

Carinya also accepts referrals from clients who are completing other alcohol and other drug rehabilitation programs.
