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.

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!

Sober Living Client Testimonials
The community, the staff, the owner and especially this program is an incredibly special place. You never know the character of people until you are in crisis. Well, my program in Malibu was in crisis. We suffered a significant evacuation due to fire and without even a hesitation, the Transcend owner and staff came together to give us food, shelter and comfort for my clients that were displaced, anxious and feeling overwhelmed by tragedy. When you think of your loved one going to a place that is willing to give the shirt off their back without question, then Transcend is where your loved one belongs. Their character, their compassionate staff, and their personal sense of commitment to a clients safety, well being and comfort is unprecedented. Do not hesitate to let them be a part of your solution, they "get it" and are willing to do whatever it takes to be there for you and your family. Call them right away if you need a place that will care for you or your loved one the same way that my clients were cared for without hesitation. Transcend is remarkable.
