Transcend Recovery Community Overview
Transcend Recovery Community was founded in 2008 and has been providing help for men and women suffering from substance dependence and mental health problems for decades. The community seeks to help individuals on the path to long-lasting recovery and offers numerous gender-specific sober living facilities for men and women in New York, Los Angeles, and Houston. The community has sober living facilities for men at Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Venice while the facilities for women exist in Houston, Texas and Santa Monica. These sober living facilities usually consist of holistic-centered recovery and family programs. The community offers a sub-acute medical detox center in the hills of Brentwood known as “The View”. The View provides clients with a highly individualized, client-centered treatment plan tailored to suit their needs. The center offers relief from various forms of substance addiction and stabilization programs may last for up to two months. Since 2012, the community has provided adolescents with the chance to receive support when they need it the most in the form of adolescent mentoring. This program helps participants—mostly young adults and teenagers—to cope with academics, social dynamics, and extracurricular activities in healthy ways. Transcend also offers clients support in the form of a sober companion and sober mentoring program, both of which aim to build accountability and healthy living for the client.

Breakfast and lunch are usually prepared by the client while a professional chef handles the dinner preparations. Most facilities also provide transportation to appointments or meetings. Clients at the facility are also allowed but not encouraged to smoke.
The community offers various therapy options depending on the unique needs of the client. Some of these are:
Partial Hospitalization Program
The partial hospitalization program holds at Heights Treatment and Westside Treatment and is a good option for clients who have completed a residential program. It is also ideal for people who cannot commit or pay their way through an inpatient program. It affords clients the opportunity to receive treatment while living in a sober living house or in their own homes. Individual and holistic forms of therapy are usually available at this stage.
In the outpatient treatment program, the community offers clients the opportunity to receive comprehensive treatment while living at home. This is an ideal form of treatment for people who are unable to take time away from work or have other personal obligations.

- Substance addiction (alcohol, opiates, etc.)

The facility offers various options of therapy which include:

It costs around $10,000 (this is only a rough estimate) for a 30-day stay at Transcend Recovery Community. The average duration of a lengthened stay at the sober living house is five months. Insurance verification is required for clients to find out if their insurance covers payment for the treatment program. Interested clients are advised to call the organization for more information on payment plans and insurance policies. The facility is in-network with different insurance companies such as:

Transcend Recovery Community
The organization provides a discharge plan which is called The Sober Mentoring Program for clients desiring to leave the sober living accommodation and live independently. The essence of the program is to offer supervision as the organization believes that the transition from the sober living house to living independently is a very important and crucial time. The program involves meetings, goal setting, proper communication, drug tests, supervision, house inspections, and many more.
One of the qualified staff (family director) contacts the loved ones of patients registered into the program, weekly, to give updates on the progress of the patient. A family weekend is organized every two weeks to support and educate patients’ family members. Recreational activities such as yoga, acupuncture, and book study are offered to clients on all levels weekly.
The community practices the sober living approach to healing and recovery on a full scale, providing eye-catching accommodations and equipment. Although the cost of living in one of the establishment or houses is relatively high, it is a very appealing option for clients who desire to practice sober living and live in luxury.
