Life of Purpose Mission is to provide individuals and their families struggling with addiction a purpose and path to sustainable recovery.
HOW CAN WE HELP
Our vision at Life of Purpose is to meet the needs of our clients, families and communities by providing exceptional addiction treatment.
- Transparent accountable personalized care for our clients and their families
- Sustainable recovery and overall wellness
- Mutual respect of our employees, clients and their families
- Commitment to a community-based continuum of care
- Defining and pursuing purpose
- Safe therapeutic environment
WE FOCUS ON DEFINING AND PURSUING ONE’S PURPOSE.
Educational achievement can redefine one’s life purpose. During early recovery, taking a single academic class can dramatically shift self-perception in a more positive direction for young adults.
We don’t want our clients to hold themselves small but instead reach further than they have ever done before. We don’t want them to become defined by the choices they have made in the past in the midst of substance misuse but rather learn from their past experiences and expand to grow maturely and confidently beyond them.
What makes Life of Purpose so different is the purpose-driven aspect of our program.
Whereas the standard model of 30-day residential program tends to focus on having clients minimize their life, do things that are humbling and easy, and not stress themselves out, we encourage our clients to push the boundaries on what they think they can achieve. Young adults are a special population requiring focused motivation and tangible results in order to restore their confidence and feelings of self-worth in order to achieve long lasting sobriety.

A Purpose Driven Approach to Addiction Treatment Focused on Your Future
The Life of Purpose treatment model is specifically designed to engage – and keep clients motivated to pursue their goals and, in turn, stay sober. Our non-traditional therapeutic model of wellness empowers clients to utilize every available tool of academic support in addition to evidenced-based treatment modalities in order to achieve self-efficiency and independence while actively forging their own pathways to success.
Additionally, we work closely with client's families to ensure they are involved in the Life of Purpose wellness model every step of the way. Family members are encouraged to come for join sessions with their loved ones led by highly trained therapist. For families unable to travel due to distance, we offer family session via video conferencing or telephone. Families are encouraged and welcomed to call Life of Purpose staff members at anytime with questions or concerns.
Substance use disorders often come with an enormous amount of shame that negatively impacts an individual’s self-esteem. Education alters this equation.
Many of our Life of Purpose clinicians and support staff are personally active in recovery while also pursuing undergraduate and graduate college degrees. These professionals actively model what it looks like for people of all ages to fully succeed in a purposeful life of recovery — not merely remain sober within a sheltered state.
