What is your favorite part about working in the field?
My favorite part about working in this field has to be when a client obtains meaningful sobriety by pursuing passions that may have been lost long ago as a result of alcohol and drug use.
How do you maintain balance and good health?
Now that I live in NY, I love running through Central Park. Surfing/Boxing/Tennis are also great outlets for me.
Anthony Junger currently serves Transcend clients at our Manhattan home, but it was in California that he found his passion for helping people. Before moving to New York, he joined the Transcend family as a member of the support staff team at one of our men’s sober living locations in Los Angeles, Ca four years ago. Prior to working in treatment Anthony used his creative talents to compose television commercials in the Los Angeles area. While music composition is a passion of Anthony’s, he was inspired to work in recovery after his personal experience living in a sober home. Anthony credits the structure and accountability of the sober community he had to saving his own life. He now hopes to pay it forward, to share the inspiration and guidance he was given in his recovery, and help every Transcend resident effect positive change in their own lives. He firmly believes that all people can recover and change every aspect of their lives for the better. Anthony is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Ca where he received training and certification as a drug and alcohol counselor.
