Founded in 2008 by former real estate and investment professional Asher Gottesman, Transcend Recovery Homes offer gender-specific sober living residences structured to help clients maintain sobriety. Operating on both coasts, Transcend recently opened its New York City Men’s Recovery Brownstone on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, offering an upscale sober living that is near Central Park, major subway lines and a block away from Broadway.
Accommodations and Food
Transcend NY is located in a spacious brownstone in which clients sleep in double beds in double-occupancy rooms. The homes have plenty of common areas, full kitchens and laundry facilities. Community interaction is a key component of life at these sober livings. WiFi, full cable and flat screen TVs are also standard.
Organic meals are prepared by a private chef in a kosher kitchen, and any special dietary concerns, restrictions or allergies can be accommodated.
Treatment and Staff
Using a three-pronged recovery approach that includes Accountability, Clinical Collaboration and Community, Transcend aims to help clients develop an overall healthy lifestyle. The program utilizes an individualized and holistic approach to each client’s recovery and encourages 12-step involvement as well as evidence-based meetings, intensive outpatient therapy, psychiatric treatment, meditation and mindfulness, acupuncture and various exercise routines to maintain sobriety. Each house offers four experiential lectures per week in the above areas, and also goal setting, yoga, book studies and spiritual expression.
Development of life skills, including budgeting, resume, job placement, physical activity and personal integrity are taught as well. By helping clients define their unique interests, hobbies and personal goals Transcend staff members develop a set schedule for each client that allows time for these activities, holding each resident accountable to meeting their goals. Participation in the many nearby 12-Step meetings and community is highly encouraged, as well as engaging in sober activities and parties.
Transcend is not a detox. Thorough drug testing takes place randomly twice a week, with labs checking for over 50 substances.
Multiple staff members are always on the premises. Staff works with physicians and clinicians in mental health to provide a collaborative treatment plan. All of the program directors are trained mental health counselors.
Transcend also incorporates family involvement, scheduling a family weekend every two months that addresses the challenges of transition from sober living into regular housing. A Family Director with 30 years of experience works with clients’ families each week, educating them on recovery and providing them with support.
Included in the monthly cost of treatment is a membership to an exclusive nearby gym. In addition, transportation is provided to all recovery meetings, outpatient programs, school and other necessary appointments. A chaperone is provided for all clients within their first 30 days at the facility, who accompanies clients to all recovery-related outings.
Transcend Recovery offers comprehensive sober livings for those seeking a more structured community after rehab or in lieu of rehab. For those craving multiple activities and outings, these homes will prove a good fit.
