Highlight on Scholarships


Pura Vida is proud to provide both internal scholarships and access to external scholarship opportunities. These can help offset the cost of a prospective clients move-in costs, monthly rent and living expenses, as well as the cost of treatment. Through our internal fund and external partners we have helped hundreds of struggling addicts and alcoholics take the first step towards recovery. Every new client is made aware of these opportunities, and it is rare that we are not able to help everyone receive some sort of financial help.

In addition to scholarship opportunities, Pura Vida provides a range of no-interest financing options and payment plans that can ease the burden of the cost of treatment and make taking this important step easier.

Casey’s Scholarship

Casey cared about others more than he did for himself. He would do anything to see others laugh and wanted the best for those around him. In the end, he was not able to ease his own pain from this disease. Our hearts are broken, but our souls know that he is finally at peace.

-Chris, Terry, Ali & Danielle

​Micah’s Scholarship

Micah always gave everyone the biggest bear hugs, he had the biggest heart, infectious smile and was everyone’s big brother. His laugh was like no other, always the joker and made a huge presence every time he walked in a room. Not a day goes by that the family does not miss him and think of him, we are deeply saddened that addiction took him from us far too soon.

-Micah’s Family

Our 22-year-old son Micah died of a drug overdose. After he passed many families asked us to be honest and tell his story. Our hope is to help someone else and make them feel less alone. We decided to form a nonprofit called “Micah’s Hugs” Our mission is to help break the stigma on addiction, bring awareness, and to help those in need.

Micah’s Hugs is offering the Micah Hamlow-Sawyer Scholarship to help individuals who fight every day to overcome the devastating effects of addiction.​
