We Do More

TRANSCEND℠  is unlike other Sober Livings as we provide many services that most sober living environments do not. We have three full shifts of qualified staff with an awake graveyard shift to continually help monitor and motivate our clients in their recovery. Most sober livings only provide a live in manager but we have found it to be of extreme importance to always have multiple staff members available to our clients. more

Our Approach

TRANSCEND℠ is a structured recovery community rooted in a holistic approach. We help our clients by exposing them to the abundant 12 step community as well as other evidence based recovery meetings. We help our members to create a new and healthy lifestyle by using a three pronged approach of Accountability, Clinical Collaboration and Community.  more

We Nurture

TRANSCEND℠ believes in an individualized approach in helping plot our clients’ road to recovery. more

We Mentor

What about after Sober Living?

Transcend provides a full Mentoring Program influenced by the phenomenal success of existing monitoring programs for Doctors, Pilots and Nurses. more
