Addictions, commonly referred to as substance use disorders (SUDs), represent a complex public health problem. Recovery homes provide transitional housing for individuals struggling with SUDs and the residents of these facilities are commonly required to participate in 12-step (TS) programs. The present study consists of interviews with participants living in a transitional recovery house and centers on their participation in a TS program, illuminating our understanding of how living in transitional recovery housing facilitates sobriety for individuals participating in TS programs. Based on the results, the participants believed that living in recovery housing and participating in a TS program provided structure, fellowship, and community to support their recovery. This is valuable for both practitioners and scholars in the formation and structure of interventions to combat substance abuse disorders.
