Supportive Housing

For many people, the transition from rehab to home life can be overwhelming. Family, friends, and old addiction cycles can present themselves as soon as someone leaves rehab. Fear of relapse can often lead to relapse, and learning how to stay sober is key. A sober community is the best way to build relationships around healthy, supportive housing. At TruHealing Riverbend, our addiction treatment center is here to help you with sobriety after addiction. 

If you or someone in your life needs help staying sober after rehab, the team at TruHealing Riverbend can help. Call our addiction treatment center today at (855) 652-0546 to learn about our supportive housing program in Jeffersonville, Indiana. 

What Is a Supportive Housing Program?

Supportive housing programs help clients as they work on maintaining their sobriety during and after rehab. Many people enter residential treatment because they don’t have a safe, drug-free home environment for outpatient treatment. After they finish residential treatment, it may not be safe to return to the same home environment. That’s where supportive housing comes in. 

A supportive housing home and program can help keep people sober through community living. Multiple people live in housing communities dedicated to sobriety and addiction recovery. These houses, similar to fraternities or sororities, are run by a house manager. Usually, an addiction therapist, the house manager, oversees daily life, chore distribution, and group therapy sessions. 

For many people in early recovery, supportive housing programs provide a safe and stable environment conducive to healing. It can be easier to return to work, reconnect with loved ones, and avoid relapse when living in a sober home. Supportive housing also provides clients the time they need to make major life changes, like finding new homes, new jobs, enrolling in school or life skills training programs, and developing new healthy routines. 

Is Supportive Housing Right for You or Your Loved One?

If you’re not sure how to stay sober after rehab, the supportive housing program at TruHealing Riverbend can help. Supportive housing may be right for you or someone you love if:

  • You’re looking to build local sober communities
  • You are moderately independent and can manage personal finances
  • You’re ready to become independent in recovery
  • You’re motivated to maintain sobriety and ready to motivate others
  • You thrive in community living situations
  • You need time and space before returning to your previous home life

At TruHealing Riverbend, our family-forward community is here to help you and your loved ones thrive through supportive housing programs.

SHANE AUSTIN
COMMUNITY OUTREACH REPRSENTATIVE

I have worked at TruHealing Riverbend for a year now and have enjoyed every minute of it! I started with case management and grew into my role of community relations. I enjoy meeting individuals in the community, creating ways to work together, and supporting others in the industry. Helping individuals make the changes necessary for recovery motivates me to continue the work I do.

Outside of work, I like spending time with my family and friends!

Passions & interests: The greatest passion of mine is being able to dig into the work with men in early recovery. There is nothing better than witnessing and being a part of the change. My journey in long-term recovery has taught me to value the little things in life that I am now able to do. I love to do anything that allows me to be present with my wife, family, and friends. My wife and I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, and taking long motorcycle rides with our friends. If I am not on the road working or with my wife, I am studying or playing softball.

 

The best part of my job is being able to show up for my team and clients; they all mean the world to me. I get to brainstorm and strategize with tons of different personalities. A lot of the team does not know, but I love learning from them. If I am not learning something about our industry or workplace, I am certainly learning how to effectively collaborate with different types of individuals.

 

Together, we can change the narrative and be a part of the solution to better treat those trapped in the problem.

Dr. Adam Cusner, PhD is an organizational psychologist by training and has brought his decade-plus experience to the healthcare field serving as the Executive Vice President of Operations for a 22-facility portfolio of skilled nursing facilities, assisted living and independent living centers across Ohio and Arizona, with an annual revenue over $250MM. While serving in this position, Dr. Cusner brought accelerated growth to these facilities, while increasing employee retention and workflow optimization. Dr. Cusner has a proven track record in the healthcare industry of providing successful leadership through his financial acumen, strategic planning, interpersonal skills, along with his ability to build strong, effective teams.

 

Dr. Cusner’s credentials include a Philosophy Doctorate in Organizational Psychology (PhD) from Cleveland State University, a Master of Arts in Psychology (MA) from Boston College with an emphasis on Psychology of Work, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (BS) from Boston University with an emphasis in Organizational Behavior in Business and is a board-certified Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA). He has published and presented research articles in the field of organizational psychology at national healthcare conferences. Dr. Cusner is completing a book on organizational psychology in the healthcare field, which is expected to be published late early summer 2022. He is also a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), has served as the APA’s Division 17 communications chair, is a member of the Society for Industrial Organizational Psychologists (SIOP), and was selected as a professional reviewer for national conference research presentations.

 

Dr. Cusner is an advocate for his employees and is drawn to the tie between culture and quality.

Dr. Cusner coordinated the financial turnaround of a 300 bed CCRC (skilled nursing, assisted living and an independent living center) in Arizona, which has been epitomized as the most financially challenging state to manage CCRC facilities. Dr. Cusner also strengthened the business growth of the Ohio facilities by 12%. He was recognized by the Governor for demonstrating a “care-conscious approach” during COVID, when Dr. Cusner carefully consolidated facility residents to accommodate staff and improve clinical care. Dr. Cusner demonstrates a results-driven culture by delivering a high-quality level of care and employee engagement.

As we continue to grow Amatus Health, the need to stay competitive and differentiate ourselves in unique ways is crucial. Building creative approaches to reach more people will take our company to new heights. This is why I am pleased to announce that we are officially rebranding. Our new national name, TruHealing Addiction & Mental Health Treatment, will eventually replace Amatus Recovery Centers.

You may be asking, “Why are we doing this?” This new name will give us national uniformity and help brand ourselves as a whole, which will be done in phases. You will still see our existing facility names co-branded with TruHealing for the time being.

Healing is what we do. Everyone who comes through our doors is in a moment of profound struggle in their lives. We support them through a life-changing process of healing and recovery, and they leave our facilities changed. This new name is a representation of that process. As mentioned above, it also allows us to have a national brand, which will make us a recognizable name in the addiction and mental health field.

In summation, these changes present an excellent opportunity for our organization to develop our mission, vision, and purpose. I look forward to prosperous growth as we head in a new and positive direction.

Sincerely,

Mark Gold
CEO
