A Message of Hope from our CEO:

Through his own journey of recovery, Asher Gottesman realized a life of service was his best role. With a vision to transform the paradigm of recovery to reflect a community of love, support, and celebration, he stared Transcend in 2009 with one sober living home in Venice, CA. Today, Transcend operates nine sober living homes across Los Angeles, New York, and Houston, and offers a range of supplemental recovery support services such as mentoring and sober-coaching. With the guiding philosophy of, “helping people help themselves”, Transcend Recovery Community helps individuals achieve a lifestyle in recovery that is dynamic, interconnected, and meaningful.

Ryan Leaf, Transcend Program Ambassador:

Ryan David Leaf is an advocate for those struggling with mental and behavioral health issues, and works to remove the stigma around mental health issues and addiction. Before working with Transcend Recovery Community, he was one of the most promising collegiate football players of his time, and rivaled Peyton Manning for the Heisman trophy. In 1998, he was the number 2 pick in the NFL draft behind Peyton Manning. Ryan now travels across the United States speaking to communities about his story of recovery. Ryan’s experience captures the transparency and authenticity that Transcend Recovery Community is founded upon.

Annual Halloween Party Hosted by Transcend:

Every year, Transcend Recovery Community throws an all-out Halloween party for the entire sober community. We open our doors to those who are looking for a sober night of good music, dancing, and most importantly, fun! Our annual bash has earned itself the reputation of being one of the largest sober events during Halloween, complete with a live DJ, dance floor, videographer, and photo booth. We believe in creating experiences for our community that are vibrant, fun, and, engaging. Getting sober does not mean that the party’s over!

Sober Living Client Testimonials

Hi Asher,

I hope this email finds you well, as I’m quite dandy being able to send it. Just a quick update since my 4 year anniversary passed recently.

After Transcend, I took a job in Boston and did very well there for almost three years. I bought a house, bought a car, and had a very solid, stable job. I design lasers and wrote a textbook for grad students in nonlinear optics. I moved to Denver to join a laser startup company in October 2015 as the CTO. I’m living downtown and enjoying an active, healthy lifestyle, and my workaholism tendencies remain successfully at bay.

None of this would have been possible for the support that Transcend and Sierra Tucson provided. Feel free to share my update with those who you deem could hear it. I know it is always refreshing to hear good news.

It is difficult to put into words how desperate we were feeling when we took our son to Transcend. We had tried so many different treatment centers, sober coaches, and even tried helping him ourselves but nothing had worked. We honestly felt there was nowhere else to turn.

Transcend has exceeded our hopes. Our son went in with high levels of anxiety and addictions and after 6 months he is on the way to completing the steps and is now in employment. The team at Transcend seems to understand exactly the kind of support these vulnerable individuals need. Through psychiatry sessions and mentoring our son now has a much brighter future ahead of him and we are eternally grateful.
