Transcend is a recovery community that lives by the philosophy of “helping people help them-selves”. Unlike most sober living companies, Transcend is a full-fledged community comprised of nine homes throughout the Los Angeles, New York, and Houston areas. They specialize in helping young men and women rediscover a passion for purposeful living. Recovery is not a solo-effort; it takes a caring village and a wide array of resources. By adhering to Transcend’s principles of “accountability, community, and spirituality”, clients can feel confident knowing that we will support their recovery like no one else.
Transcend provides two experiential group sessions for clients per house, per week. These group sessions range from acupuncture meditation, mindfulness techniques, goal setting, book study, and spiritual expression. Transcend also provides full transportation to 12-step meetings, outpatient facilities, doctor’s appointments, and group outings. Each house features a full-time chef that prepares healthy and organic meals every evening. Their staff communi-cates with families and clinicians on a weekly basis and conducts family weekends every two months.
Transcend's recovery program is based on the belief that a combination of accountability and a loving community will provide the very best recovery experience possible. They work with several charities and an on-site life coach to help clients experience purpose on a deeper level. Transcend also hosts many fun and engaging activities for clients, including holiday parties, ski and camping trips, and hangouts at the beach.
All clients are taught the importance of accountability through Transcend's use of a tiered-re-sponsibility system that exposes them to a level of responsibility appropriate to their recovery progress. Vocational and life skill training is another important part of the Transcend recovery program.
