Finding Meaning and Purpose in Recovery

Willie Oswald, founder of Summit Malibu, talks about meaning and purpose in recovery. Check out the latest episode of Sobering Up Summit Malibu to watch.

Program coordinator, Kristin Robert, interviews Willie at the newest Summit house, Summit Vista. Willie shares his experience, strength, and hope in this chat. He also discusses how he ended up working in the field of recovery. As well as the meaning and purpose that he has found in this field.

Willie got sober in 1979 and has worked in the field of recovery since the 80s (for over 35 years). It was never an industry that he thought he would work in, but in the work of helping other addicts, he found purpose in his own life. He found something that he was able you give– his experience, strength and hope. And, through giving this he discovered that he was able to help a lot of people.

This was the foundation for Willie’s career in addiction treatment, and after various other endeavors, around a decade ago Summit was founded. It is the big heart, the passion, and the commitment that Willie has for recovery that is a huge part of Summit. That same feeling and tradition is carried down by the entire staff, and it is this that makes the Summit Team so special. The real heart of what makes Summit Malibu different is its’ people, and Willie is a huge part of that.
