Discovering purpose is a key component in the process of recovery. Purpose driven employment is a valued social construct. For those seeking to rebuild and discover self-worth, meaningful employment can elevate this sense of purpose and give direction to their recovery. 

As recovery service providers strive to improve recovery outcomes and provide their program participants with effective and inclusive care, there is a call to include a spectrum of personal and community resources to support and facilitate lasting recovery. Employment preparation and training give participants the means to overcome obstacles, believe in themselves, and create structures for agency.

The On A Dime Transformations process has three distinct phases:

  • Hope: Discovering unrecognized value within
  • Vision: Discovering possibilities and opportunities
  • Action: Creating and implementing a plan for success


As a person completes a recovery program they can often feel regret over time and opportunities missed in the past while feeling overwhelmed by the mountain in front of them.  This can sometimes result in people either working feverishly to “make up” for time gone by or simply shut down without knowing where to start. Sadly this often leads to burnout or procrastination. 

Expecting people in early recovery to navigate this transition without substantial support is just not realistic. There is a huge gap in the current system of care that fails to address a critical piece required to achieve successful long-term recovery outcomes.

On A Dime Transformations aims to provide a journey of self-realization that empowers people in recovery to find the value within themselves and to create their own path to a purpose-driven career. 

On a Dime Transformations has developed programming that guides participants as they navigate a challenging job market to find fulfilling work that aligns with their values. Our ideal clients include addiction treatment providers, non-profit organizations, governments, and corrections facilities. We offer a tool that creates tangible results for treatment service providers. By incorporating the On A Dime Transformations employment preparation curriculum as a component of recovery programming, these clients can improve their reported success statistics to their funders and supporters and expand their ability to provide recovery care for others.
