The Transitions Program has been designed to support clients who are transitioning back into the community after completing the intensive inpatient program at South Pacific Private or alternative treatment facility.
The aim of the program is to consolidate the learnings from the inpatient program and provide an opportunity for clients to practice incorporating their newly learned skills into daily life. Clients begin to gradually re-integrate into their lives and increase their responsibilities with a large degree of therapeutic support. During the two week program, clients generally reside in Beachwood Supported Living.*
Research shows that the longer an individual is engaged in treatment and programs the better their chances of a sustained recovery and is essential for relapse prevention.

Who is it for?
The program is suitable for any clients who have completed the inpatient program and have been recommended by their multi-disciplinary support (MDS) team to complete the Transitions Program.
We also invite individuals who have completed an inpatient program elsewhere and require extra community support rather than another inpatient stay to reach out to our dedicated intake team to discuss an admission to our Transitions Program*.
Most major health funds cover the Transitions Program. Clients can claim via their private health fund if sufficient hospital cover is held. Please note all funds have different rules. We accept self-funded payments.
The full cost of the program for self-funded is $350 per day – morning tea and lunch are provided.
For more information please contact our Intake Team here. They can arrange a health fund check, and determine any out-of-pocket excess or gap expenses.
The Transitions Program is available Monday – Saturday for two weeks.
