Trauma Informed Treatment


Life of Purpose addiction treatment centers are a family of substance abuse and mental health programs dedicated to providing adults ages 17 – 60+ with the necessary tools to ignite their purpose and recovery. Whether you are a young adult needing to get your life back in order and complete your education, or a professional spinning out of control and needing to re-engage your passion and career, we have programs designed for you. Life of Purpose specializes in evidence-based treatment services for young adults, and adults whose lives have been disrupted by substance abuse. We offer clinically sound, affordable addiction treatment with facilities in the greater Philadelphia area and Palm Beach County, Florida. This continuum of care is uniquely designed to address the gap in traditional addiction treatment services offered to adults and emerging adults. Our Location This treatment center, located outside the Philadelphia area on the Mainline, provides all levels of outpatient treatment from Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and traditional Outpatient treatment. Due to the proximity to the City, it is more accessible to people who are working, in school and participating in their surrounding community while engaging in local outpatient treatment. Program Details Our Reality-Based Treatment Model focuses on strengthening life skills and spans all levels of care, detox through traditional outpatient. In this modality, we assess a person’s strengths and weaknesses to help individuals adapt to a successful sober lifestyle. Reality Based Treatment programming includes emotion regulation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and trauma-informed treatment.

Many of our clients tell us how much they appreciate what we do and how we help them. Several clients have expressed interest in working in the field because of their experiences here. The clinicians work with each client on an individual and highly personalized level to make sure that the recovery process is a smooth as possible and that the program the client is working will actually pan out for that specific client. Treatment isn't a one-size-fits-all thing and the clinicians and staff are aware of that and make a point to ensure the client that just because they might not work their program the same way someone else does, that doesn't mean their program is wrong--if it works for the individual, then it works. We're not here to judge anyone, we're here to help our clients be successful in their lives and sobriety. Our clients are aware of this. A welcoming, well-trained, and caring staff; a well-kept and safe environment; personalized treatment plans.
