Life of Purpose Treatment provides a unique opportunity for young adults seeking recovery from a substance use disorder. Founder and CEO Andrew Burki, MSW created the vision to foster success in recovery and purpose in life through truly specialized academically-focused treatment. As the first facility on a university campus in the United States, Life of Purpose was founded to concurrently provide clinical services and educational support to young adults with substance use disorders whose academic path has been disrupted. Located in Boca Raton in the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University, the facility lies in the center of an area densely populated with young people in recovery and provides access to three local universities.
Life of Purpose is proud to announce an official accreditation and Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission at our Cherry Hill location. Life of Purpose NJ opened this past January and has been serving clients in the Delaware Valley who have an interest in pursuing higher education.
Monica Frank MSW, LCSW, LCADC serves as the Clinical Director for the South Jersey based program. Frank played a key role in obtaining this accreditation and had the following to say:
“As an addictions professional invested in providing excellent consumer care, it is important that Life of Purpose New Jersey uphold and maintain high standards. We must continually assess our program, consumer outcomes and satisfaction, and positive impact on the community. An accreditation from the Joint Commission is an asset and driving force in building that foundation of quality treatment.”
“Life of Purpose is pleased to receive Behavioral Health Care Accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Andrew Burki MSW, who currently serves as the Executive Director in for the New Jersey facility and is the founder and CEO of Life of Purpose. “Staff from across the organization continue to work together to develop and implement approaches and strategies that have the potential to improve care for those in our community.”
