Steve co-founded Solid Landings Behavioral Health following his own recovery from drug addiction. He credits his personal insights and understanding of the life of an addict for his passion and goal for Solid Landings, which is to provide all its clients with a calm, supportive, family environment to allow them to focus on their recovery.
Steve holds a B.S. in Accounting and Finance from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Conn., and has extensive business experience. Steve managed his first successful construction company, Fennelly Construction, while finishing his degree in 2000. In 2004, he started A Plus C Quality Construction, at a time when addiction was taking ahold of his life. He moved to Southern California to try to turn his life around, leading to his founding of Solid Landings with partners, Mark Shandrow and Elizabeth Perry.
From a small sober living home, Solid Landings has become a nationally recognized facility known for its outstanding care, excellent services, and exceptional support for its clients.
Steve’s philosophy is to offer personalized care and concern for his clients. He believes that families are part of the healing process, and seeks to involve family members in the treatment of their loved ones. He insists on creating peaceful, family-like living arrangements where clients can focus on themselves and their recovery. Although there have been plenty of opportunities to grow Solid Landings in size, Steve has made a conscious decision to grow smartly, in order to provide personal support for clients.
He remains an active sponsor for people attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He has also mentored a number of business owners to build businesses that promote a personal connection with their clients.
