Our team mission:
We are dedicated to changing the current structure of the sober living community as a whole across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We currently offer services that no other sober living environment does, not only do we provide random drug testing but we also offer K-9 drug sweeps of our homes. Destination Recovery’s services help men recover from chemical dependencies so that they can become productive members of society, living a life free of drugs and alcohol. These positive and disciplined approaches help to introduce, encourage and assist each resident in developing a productive life of sobriety. Through our professional recovery coaching, attending 12-step meetings and completing the 12-step process, each resident will have the opportunity to achieve the solution of freedom.
We offer a male sober housing system that is properly zoned, insured and state approved in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We are active members of various organizations such as the New Jersey Alliance of Recovery Residences and the National Sober Living Association.
