Life Of Purpose At Florida Atlantic University
Our Florida program is situated among three exceptional academic institutions in Boca Raton, Florida. Located at Research Park on the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) campus just north of Palm Beach State College, we are also in close proximity to Lynn University. Life of Purpose Florida clients may enroll in any of these institutions — or others of their choice, regardless if these are four-year colleges or not. We’ll meet them wherever they are on their educational track.
The Florida program offers a Primary Program program; Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP); and Academically Focused Aftercare Program™ ; and a luxury transitional housing program known as Life in Progress. Primary housing is located about three miles from FAU’s campus and features 24-hour supervision with gender-separate living areas. Transportation is provided to and from all activities.
Our transitional housing program is open to all individuals in recovery. Even those who are not members of the Life of Purpose alumni community can live in our sober dorms. Life in Progress is a gender-specific luxury housing option conveniently located to male clients near FAU, Lynn University, and Palm Beach State College. For our female clients, we have several supervised, alternative sober living options available, and we are in progress of securing space to open a luxury housing option.
In addition, we are committed to advancing the field of recovery research through the creation of recovery research hubs within higher education institutions. With our support in March 2015, FAU announced the establishment of an Office of Substance Abuse, Mental Health and Recovery Research to serve as a hub for interdisciplinary addictions treatment research.
At Life of Purpose, we realize that all of our clients are unique and that each individual’s path to academic success can vary. Upon admission, we assess the needs of each client in order to determine which ancillary services might best aid them in their pursuit of an education. Treatment emphasizes relapse prevention as clients learn to integrate coping skills into real life situations. Clients are linked with services such as tutoring, or in some cases, university student services like those offered through the office of disability.
