Because the addiction relapse rate is so high, even for those leaving a detox facility or even a 30-day treatment program, Higher Path Living has stepped in to help bridge the gap. We interview each applicant prior to admission to make sure that it’s the best fit for everyone.

Unlike traditional sober houses, our recovery residences are built on proven, evidence-based foundations of recovery – to help heal the body, mind and spirt.  We employ dedicated Recovery Coaches to assist our guests in their recovery process.

Dennis Hofmaier, MBA – Founder & Recovery Coach. Higher Path Living was founded by Dennis after his own experience with recovery from alcohol, and the lack of follow-up aftercare that met his own personal needs.  From that, the Higher Path Living Program was created with compassionate, caring professionals who believe in evidence-based recovery. Denns is a certified SMART Recovery facilitator and author on topics relating to holistic recovery.

Veronica Scala – Outreach Director & Recovery Coach.

Veronica joined HPL from Sovereign Health where she worked as a Detox Technician. Veronica works intensely with the Nevada recovery community, and is also a certified SMART Recovery facilitator. Veronica is passionately involved in the Southern Nevada Opioid Task Force holding a position on the Legislation and Policy Committee. She is also active in the addiction community as a member of the CARE Coalition, PACT Coalition, State of Nevada’s Association For Addiction Professionals, the Southern Nevada Harm Reduction Alliance and the Bureau of Behavioral Health, Wellness and Prevention. Veronica also enjoys working one-on-one with guests on SMART Recovery and facilitating group meetings.

Joseph Perroni, MS. – Clinical Therapist. Joe was integral with the development of the Higher Path Recovery. He describes himself as a practitioner who provides an empathetic, non-judgmental, and confidential environment  where each guest can be fully heard and understood. Joe is not interested in identifying symptoms to label people – but rather meeting the needs of individuals and their families – by utilizing a mind, body, and spirit approach with the intent of addressing the root causes of pain and discomfort. This approach paves the way toward happiness and gives the spirit fertile ground in which to flourish. Joe is also a world-class bodybuilder and has been a personal trainer to celebrities for 25 years. He has authored the book “From Grief to Relief” and hosts the weekly “Rise Above” radio show.
