Sober Living at The Launching Pad
Sober Living in a Structured, Recovery Based Environment
A Renaissance in Personal Recovery and Fellowship
See What People Are Saying About Our Program
For the past seven months, our son has been a part of The Launching Pad. The experience has been life changing for him. After numerous attempts at recovery in several different treatment centers, he finally found a place where the beliefs about how to work the 12 steps resonated with him. The sense of having a recovery community has had a huge impact on him. Each phase of the program gives the guys a sense of accomplishment and responsibility, which in turn, gives them the confidence and discipline to stay sober. Tarek and his staff members have a true talent for reaching through to these young men and guiding them through a road to recovery. We will forever to grateful for the roadmap that they have provided for our son.

To provide a sober living environment grounded in the growth and maintenance of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sobriety.
Our sober living aims to help each man recover from addiction and claim his position as a productive member of society.
The Launching Pad believes the Twelve Steps are the foundation stone for permanent recovery. In addition, we emphasize that abstinence from mind-altering substances is only the beginning of the recovery process. Our sober living teaches and requires residents to practice several key life skills including, but not limited to: discipline, responsibility, accountability, honest communication, goal setting, vision and intent, financial literacy, resume building and interviewing.
At The Launching Pad, we help men understand the importance of living an honest life — to do what you say, and say what you do.
Our sober living is rooted in The Twelve Steps. We are not a typical sober living program nor are we a halfway house. Traditional sober living programs, even ones that are twelve stepped based, do not have the structure or step-work framework we do in Phase I of our sober living which lasts for 60 days.
Sober Living at TLP includes a twelve step immersion program. We use an approved list of 25 sponsors. We assign each resident a sponsor he can identify with in regards to the main problem substance and other life experiences. These men use the twelve steps as outlined in our Basic Text. In turn, we act as an oversight committee setting appointments, deadlines and holding our residents accountable using our timeline for step work.
Most traditional sober living programs do not offer twelve step immersion and halfway houses definitely don’t. So, if you’re looking for a transitional living program, we emphatically encourage you to visit any place you’re interested in and ask as many questions as possible.
Sober living should be much more then living with others who are trying to stay clean and sober, working, and going to meetings. TLP’s sober living stresses the importance of submitting to a way other you’re your own, working the steps, getting involved in the unity of the 12 step community and sponsorship. This is our model for recovery and we know it works from personal experience.
