Recovery Is Not Just Quitting Drugs and Alcohol

Recovered On Purpose was founded on the belief that addiction is an epidemic with a rising death rate that can only be stopped by recovered addicts attaching to mission and living on purpose. With all the treatments, all the fellowships, all the churches etc… why is it the average age of youth drug experimentation continues to lower, while the overdose and relapse rate continues to rise?

We believe the best relapse prevention for addicts in recovery is living inside the purpose God created for their lives and Recovered On Purpose is a bridge to help any addict in recovery find and live on that very purpose.

We believe every addict struggling has the ability to find a God of their understanding and recover from a state of hopelessness and active addiction. Once this decision has been made, we are a movement of telling our stories in powerful, impactful ways that take away the stigma of weak will-power and shows the true Power it takes for us to recover.

Our stories will be shared with society in the form of books, interviews, social media, and more. Most importantly, our stories will be utilized in the school system to deter the future generations from going down the path of drug use and addiction.

Not many addicts are deciding to have permanent recovery. Many of us that become addicted will never taste the freedom of being Recovered On Purpose. But we that do shall rise up as an army against this evil, so younger generations do not have to experience the same horrors we did.

Our stories
are our greatest weapons…

ADAM Vibe GUNTON

After overcoming homelessness and drug addiction, Adam Vibe Gunton became passionate about sharing the hope of recovery with those suffering similar experiences. With only two years of recovery, Adam had built a 7-figure business, began public speaking, and launched his now #1 Bestselling book: From Chains To Saved. For the year following that launch, Adam founded Recovered On Purpose and helped multiple other addicts/alcoholics in recovery (and one mother who lost her son to the disease) to write, publish and promote their stories into bestselling books. Adam’s mission is to continue to be the example of what is possible for those who recover from this disease while inspiring them to live passionate, purpose-filled lives that help others recover and deter future generations from going down the path of addiction.

MY ROLE IN R.O.P. AND WHAT IT MEANS TO ME: As an author in Recovered on Purpose, my role is to share the testimony of God’s work in my life with all who come to listen. Be that through the book, speaking engagements, or social media, it is a true honor and blessing to be able to be my part in someone else’s story of recovery. Watching the Lord use my story to reach and bless others makes having lived it, worth it. Every single day.
