ILC has acquired Recover Dream, an intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment center in Oxford founded by several families actively involved in student and family recovery. These families will continue their involvement with Integrative Life Center and include David and Kent Magee, co-founders of the William Magee Center for AOD and Wellness Education and the William Magee Institute for Student Wellbeing at the University of Mississippi; Jay Fuller, a University of Mississippi graduate and a member of the Triplett family, who are leading supporters of the Magee Center and Institute’s creation and launch; and Chrissy and Ford McElroy, who are actively involved in Oxford’s recovery community.

Integrative Life Center’s expansion into Oxford, including a specialized focus on serving University of Mississippi students with mental health and substance use disorders, provides essential growth for the company, expanding Integrative Life Network, a family of trauma-focused treatment centers for mental health, substance use, and intimacy disorders. ILN’s family of centers includes Begin Again Institute, a 14-day intensive program for men struggling with intimacy disorders, and Boulder Recovery, a clinically intensive, Christian 14-day intensive program for men struggling with intimacy disorders.

With the expansion, Integrative Life Network CEO Christi Cessna announces that David Magee, bestselling author, and speaker on student and family mental health and addiction, is working with the company as National Recovery Advocate, bringing his passion for helping those struggling with addiction and mental health, as well as their families, find and keep the joy they want and deserve.

“Serving the growing mental health and substance use issues in a great college community like Oxford is so important,” Cessna said. “As a mother of two college students, I have been disappointed in how other universities have fallen short of meeting the demands for these issues that have been exacerbated by the pandemic. The need is great, and I am proud that we are expanding our heart-centered care in Oxford. Having David Magee on our team is incredibly exciting as he brings so much passion to breaking the stigma around addiction and mental health, and promoting the quality care these students deserve.”

Integrative Life Center Oxford (https://integrativelifecenter.com/oxford/), located at 405 Galleria, Suite C, provides intensive outpatient (IOP) services for mental health and substance use to all adults ages 18+, with a specialization in student care.

Integrative Life Center also recently announced its new Chattanooga location, (https://integrativelifecenter.com/chattanooga/) providing partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) services for mental health and substance use. ILC Chattanooga is located at 7385 Applegate Lane. Like the Nashville and Oxford locations, ILC Chattanooga’s trauma-focused treatment for mental health and substance use utilizes an integrative and holistic model to treat root causes instead of focusing on outward symptoms and behaviors.

David Magee and his family lived for a decade in the Chattanooga area, where his children finished high school and he served for several years as the metro columnist for the city’s daily newspaper, the Times Free Press.

“My greatest joy is helping students, or parents, find the freedom they so desperately want,” said Magee. “Young people and their families today face unprecedented mental health and substance use challenges. They can feel hopeless and alone. But the hope for healing is just one click or call away. We’re on a mission in communities we intimately know and understand to change and improve lives, and ILC provides the trauma-focused care that makes a difference.”

The ILC team in Oxford includes Jay Fuller, Chrissy McElroy, and newly hired lead therapist Lauren Barber, a University of Mississippi graduate from Tupelo.

“I’ve gotten to know Lauren and her extraordinary work in recent years and identified her as a dream hire for this vital work,” Magee said. “She relates to students, and to all adults in mental health and substance use issues like few I’ve encountered. We’re on a mission to spread the joy of hope and healing and she’s the perfect fit.”

ILC Oxford and ILC Chattanooga are now open and accepting clients.
