Launch Philosophy



The work and dedication involved in achieving sobriety is one to be commended and supported…and in order to be maintained, sobriety must be paired with finding one’s purpose and building on it to maximize the ability to learn, work, and grow. It is absolutely imperative that individuals use backgrounds, talents, skills, and passions in a productive manner to contribute to society and be the best versions of themselves. We are what we do and Launch believes in the power of nurturing new behaviors specialized to individuals’ needs, talents, and goals.
