Clean Break 2017

Clean Break 2017

Life of Purpose Treatment is proud to sponsor Clean Break again this year. Clean Break provides a solution for college students in recovery who would have to choose between isolating on an empty campus or tagging along with friends who are not sober and hoping they don’t use drugs or alcohol. Since the first event in 2009, more than 1,000 students from 80 high schools and 20 universities have attended.

Along with offering treatment services for substance use disorders, Life of Purpose is committed to supporting and developing opportunities for young adults in recovery to experience fun activities while maintaining their sobriety.

We sat down with the creator of Clean Break, Asher Levine CIP, to share with our readers a bit more about this annual event.

Tell us more about you and what you do.
I am a certified intervention professional helping individuals and families get into treatment for addiction and co-occurring issues. I am also an advocate for young adults in recovery hosting events during the year for high school and college students 18+ to connect in recovery.

Why did you create Clean Break?
Talking with a music artist in recovery in 2008, I wanted to create an alternative for those students who wanted sobriety on spring break.

Can you tell us a cool story about a Clean Break experience?
Reading emails from students that just heard about it and could not believe that someone would do this for them. Seeing students connect and that are now married. Standing as a group on South Beach in Miami.

What is different about this year’s Clean Break?
It was moved back to the Destin, Florida, area to make it easy for travel. We have 10 condos for 40-60 students each week of March 2017.

Tell us something about you or Clean Break most people don’t know.
I have invested a thousand hours or more to make it happen and have never profited financially from students in recovery. I will make sure students are safe and get to 12 step meetings and connect with each other. I’m in recovery for SLA and CoDependency since 2014.

Thank you so much, Asher. To learn more about Clean Break, click here.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Cathy. We agree, that’s why we sponsor it every year. It is so important for young adults in recovery to have safe alternatives and to not feel like they can’t participate in college traditions because they no longer drink or use substances.
