Tim Schnellenberger is the Founder and CEO of Recovery Boot Camp Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center and Healing Properties Sober Living Community. Schnellenberger founded Healing Properties in 2002 and, after 5,000 clients and 12 years of successes, he saw a dire need for a long-term, 12-step emersion addiction treatment center. In 2015, he opened Recovery Boot Camp, which is designed to meet that need -- head-on.
Schnellenberger first began his work in the sober living and rehabilitation industry as a way of giving back and helping others the way he had been helped earlier on in his own life. Schnellenberger has consequently created a no-bullshit environment that focuses simply on helping men get sober. According to Schnellenberger, to remain a tenant, one must be actively attending NA/AA/NA meetings, utilizing a 12-step sponsor, working the 12-steps, interacting with sober supports, and implementing the daily living skills necessary for long-term recovery. His tenants are carefully screened and closely monitored to ensure that they are both motivated and serious about their recovery from chemical dependency.
Schnellenberger says: At Recovery Boot Camp and Healing Properties, we only admit men who that are dedicated to our philosophy and the goal of long-lasting sobriety. I firmly refuse to endanger any of our clients’ sobrieties by introducing someone who may bring chaos into their lives just so we can fill a bed. Maintaining the integrity of our recovery community in both of our programs is our top priority.͟
Schnellenberger is the son of football coach legend Howard Schnellenberger. In 2018, the two will team up to form the Schnellenberger Family Foundation. The foundation will raise money for those suffering with drug and/or alcohol addiction, and help support them and their families while getting sober. Schnellenberger is highly respected for his work and long-term commitment to the recovery industry. Schnellenberger he and his businesses have been heralded on numerous television programs and in a variety of media outlets as a treatment center and sober living community operator doing it the right way. Most recently, Schnellenberger was interviewed by the Associated Press, Politico Magazine and ABC WPBF 12 in West Palm Beach.
The Schnellenberger Family Foundation was created to address the needs of an addict’s immediate family. It is well known that addiction is a family disease. It affects all those –parents, siblings, spouses, and children – that are close to the addict, and it affects them in many ways: emotionally, physically, and financially.
