mission of the Transition Assistance Foundation is to give additional support to
addicts and or codependents new to a sober lifestyle. By providing a bridge
between treatment centers and every day life, we can help to establish new job
skills, at the same time helping to encourage the continued development of a
support network. Developing hope and the subsequent translation into action.
Our goal is to increase the rate of recovery by teaching new job skills, such
as, operating a computer and various software programs. Further instruction with
general office equipment and decorum will also be addressed. It is our hope to
provide food, and clothing and where able, a short term residence. The necessity
of treating ones disease on a daily basis shall constantly be reinforced The
four absolutes and the twelve promises, stressed as goals that can be obtained
through the need of and the benefit to all clients getting deeper into the A.A.
Big Book. The need to help internalize the workings of the Program and knowledge
necessary to begin living a spiritual life that includes 12 Step program.
Special emphases will be placed on the eleventh and twelfth steps. Passing the
message on must be taken seriously. We hope to give precedence to the female
addicts leaving treatment programs with our anticipated residential services.
Many counselors have expressed the lack of facilities for women after treatment.
We can hopefully address those needs.
