Life of Purpose Treatment Expands to Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Life of Purpose Treatment is proud to announce our newest location in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Opening on January 2nd, 2018, our facility is located in the heart of over 100 academic institutions. Its close proximity to Philadelphia enables clients to attend schools located on both sides of the Delaware River.

Life of Purpose NJ is set to serve various client needs in an outpatient setting. Three levels of care will be offered at the new location: Partial Care, Intensive Outpatient, and Academically-Focused Aftercare.

Leading the team as Executive Director at Life of Purpose NJ is Devin Reaves, MSW. Devin is a longtime champion for recovery in the Delaware Valley Region. He serves on both the Philadelphia Mayor’s Task Force to Combat the Opioid Epidemic and the Camden County Addiction Awareness Task Force.  Devin received a Master of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice and was recently recognized by the Independence Blue Cross Foundation as a Future Leader in Community Health.

“I am extremely excited to see this location open. This is a project that we have been working on for almost two years. I am a South Jersey native and a member of the local recovery community. Life of Purpose’s specialized treatment services are needed in the region, and it serves me great pleasure to aid the needs of my community.”

-James Hatzell, Chief Technology Officer for the Life of Purpose Group

The density of schools in close proximity to Life of Purpose including Camden County Community College, Rutgers University-Camden, Rowan University, Community College of Philadelphia, Temple University, University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and many more, ensures that we will be able to support an unprecedented range of student needs. In addition, our location offers access to trade and vocational training at the Technical Institute of Camden County College.

“As we look forward at developing access to youth recovery services along a comprehensive continuum of care in our country, we can see no brighter future than that provided by the collegiate recovery movement. Academic treatment followed by collegiate recovery supports on campus, is the impaired professionals program equivalency for non-professional emerging adult extended care. We very much look forward to working with other treatment facilities to give access to this continuum.”

– Andrew Burki, MSW, CEO of the Life of Purpose Group

Live of Purpose New Jersey will be announcing details for an open house and ribbon cutting on January 19th next week.
