Marginalized to Empowered Event

Life of Purpose is excited to sponsor a one-day conference to address substance use and mental health disorders on college campuses and how collegiate recovery is helping students overcome these challenges. This one-day event will take place on July 26, 2016, from 10:00am until 4:30pm at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia has long been a bastion of education with over 80 intuitions of higher education. The city has also been on the forefront of reframing the way we serve people with mental health and substance use disorders, recently celebrating 10 years of a recovery-oriented system of care. These two elements combined make Philadelphia the most fertile environment for collegiate recovery in the nation. The city also has a cluster of collegiate recovery programs and efforts, totaling 5 currently with more on the horizon. The main goal of this training is to share the knowledge of the life-changing potential of collegiate recovery and ultimately help more young people find long term recovery.

Event speakers include Keith Murphy of Rutgers University, Mark Levine of George Washington University, Dr. Jade Logan of St. Joseph’s University, Jason Whitney of Penn State University, and Daniel Fred of Transforming Youth Recovery.

We know there is much work to done, and this training is just one part of our strategic support of collegiate recovery in the city of Brotherly Love. We are also supporting a Tee it Up for Recovery Golf Outing and Awards Dinner. The event is a fundraiser for several local collegiate recovery programs.
