“I am extremely honored to be joining the incredible team of professionals that comprise the Life of Purpose Treatment organization”

— Courtney Portnof

In recovery herself, Courtney has learned a lot about recovery services from her mother, Recovery Coach and Co-Founder of the International Recovery Institute, Cindy Feinberg.

Ms. Portnof shares the same passion and tenacity to help those who suffer from the disease of addiction.

As an accomplished educator and specialist, Ms. Portnof is going to be instrumental in helping us meet the emerging educational needs of our young adult clients.”
