our mission

Peace & Purpose is a beautiful home for laying a solid foundation of recovery.

We are a family of Asheville community members with long-term sobriety. The Peace & Purpose 12-step program is simple. Our goal is to establish a solid spiritual footing since this is what guides us each day, and to integrate cars, jobs and relationships before re-entering the community. The Peace & Purpose family will help navigate these areas slowly, so that each person's efforts are successful. While we have a lot of fun, we also have guidelines that help us preserve a rich, spiritually conducive environment for recovery. If you are interested in getting the best foundation for recovery possible, we want to help.

Recovery in one word could best be described as change.

Ideas, emotions and attitudes which were once the guiding forces in the life of the alcoholic and addict are suddenly cast to one side and a completely new set of perspectives take over. This is the change we have learned to embrace and that has brought us together. 

We were brought together through a 12-step program, and although we hail from diverse backgrounds (Louisiana, Maryland, Washington D.C., Ireland), we share a common goal. We pass along our combined experience to aid clients recently out of treatment and new to recovery. We hope to share our own path to peace and purpose through the application of a 12-step program. 

Our program provides all the amenities and tools our clients need to experience a complete recovery and a life filled with purpose.

Giving back is an integral part of who we are and what we do.

A purpose-driven life is the backbone of who we are. Helping others in our community and engaging our minds is an important part of our recovery. Have you ever wondered what it's like to work on a farm, or to work behind the scenes of a theatrical play? At Peace & Purpose, our goal is to open your mind to these new experiences and help you discover genuine life fulfillment.

Through our strong relationships with the local community, we have developed a diverse volunteer program that is both challenging and rewarding. We volunteer at several organizations, including:
