Principal Officer

Mr. Phil Malonson

BIO

Phil Malonson, the Executive Director, a recovering addict himself started Twelve Step Education Program in 1993 because he wanted to give back to the recovery community by providing sober housing for men and women. He struggled himself for many years and found that there weren't many places that offered help in a safe and supportive environment that he was looking for. He decided to start his own house, which has now turned into 5 houses in MA, to provide the help and shelter that many people are looking for and need in order to succeed in their sobriety. What we do is not exciting to a lot of people who usually donate to other good causes. We do not target the arts, or kids, or visible civic improvement. But civic improvement in a sense is what we do. We provide a safe, clean, and sober living environment for men and women affected by drug and alcohol abuse. Many of our residents are the ""throw away"" of society; lifetime alcohol or drug abusers and Phil wanted them to have a place where they could start over because everyone deserves that chance. Our residents come to us because they are making a commitment to a sober life and they know they can't do it living back in their old using environment, or they literally have no where else to go to live sober. They sign a contract with us to stay sober and to take steps to get their lives in order to live a responsible sober lifestyle based on the concepts of self-responsibility for their sobriety of the 12-step recovery programs. Phil is available 24/7 for any of the residents whenever they need him for help with anything.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Twelve Step Education Program continually strives for excellence and safe, sober housing. I, Phil Malonson, Executive Director/Founder, am always available to share my experience about addiction and how the value of sober housing helping can help those in need to get and stay sober. I always have time to share my knowledge at any staff meeting, organizational meeting, or anywhere you like."
