JourneyPure, a leading provider of addiction treatment services, today announced the acquisition of The Center for Professional Excellence, one of the oldest and most highly regarded treatment centers for professionals in the United States.
For 21 years, The Center for Professional Excellence (CPE) has helped thousands of professionals who struggle with addiction and other behavioral impairments and has one of the highest long-term recovery rates in the industry. JourneyPure provides a full continuum of addiction treatment services through inpatient facilities, sober living homes and outpatient clinics, as well as proprietary coaching services and technologies. Both businesses are headquartered in the Nashville, Tennessee area and serve patients from across the nation and internationally.
“JourneyPure is honored to join forces with The Center for Professional Excellence, which is well known for its outstanding reputation, innovative approach and effectiveness in serving professionals,” stated JourneyPure CEO and co-founder Kevin Lee. “JourneyPure offers treatment services to professionals from a wide range of industries, many of whom suffer from co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse disorders. The experts at CPE will provide a wealth of knowledge to enhance and expand JourneyPure’s services to the professional community.”
Chip Dodd, PhD, founded CPE in 1996 to help impaired professionals recover their lives, their passions and their integrity from the grip of addiction, anxiety, depression and other compulsive behaviors. By deeply integrating the wisdom of the Spiritual Root System™, traditional 12-step work and intense individual, group, family, experiential and educational therapies, patients receive an individualized treatment approach that promotes emotional, relational and spiritual health. A nationally recognized teacher, trainer, author and counselor, Dr. Dodd has dedicated his career to helping individuals recover and lead healthy lives.
“We are very excited to join the mission of JourneyPure, which closely matches our own. In today’s society, specialized treatment services for professionals are more needed than ever. Through a collaborative effort that joins the expertise of CPE and JourneyPure under one roof, we can offer optimal services to help professionals get recovery from impairments, so they can have recovery of their lives,” said Dr. Dodd.
“Professionals are notable for their intellect, will power and standards that have benefitted us all. However, when they run into problems like addiction that require an emotional and relational solution, their success skills don’t and won’t heal their problem,” stated Dr. Dodd. “Our expertise is in returning the professionals to the heart of who they really are. We desire to help them live fully, love deeply and lead well the lives they had anticipated before addiction and other problems began to steal their health.”
JourneyPure has rapidly expanded since its formation in 2015 and currently serves patients from across the nation through six inpatient facilities in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Florida, as well as numerous sober living homes and outpatient clinics. JourneyPure’s growing base of inpatient facilities includes: JourneyPure At The River and JourneyPure Voyage in Murfreesboro, Tennessee; JourneyPure Serenity Network in Knoxville, Tennessee; JourneyPure Bowling Green in Bowling Green, Kentucky; JourneyPure Emerald Coast in Panama City Beach, Florida; and JourneyPure 12 Keys Rehab in Jensen Beach, Florida.
JourneyPure is a leading provider of innovative addiction treatment services with an emphasis on treating co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse disorders. Through a combination of inpatient facilities, outpatient centers, and proprietary coaching services and technologies, JourneyPure delivers a full continuum of integrated, high-quality services to assist each patient in becoming and staying healthy. Led by a highly accomplished team of industry experts, JourneyPure is a privately held company headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee.
