Counseling and Treatment for Eating Disorders and Substance Abuse.

Our Founder

Hi, I’m Sam Lample, the founder of The Way Recovery. I’ve been treating patients with addictive behaviors for the past 15 years, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Approved Counselor Supervisor, Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS), CEDS Supervisor and an International OCD Foundation member and approved therapist.

Experience the Power of Faith-Focused Counseling

After seeing the incredible success of my clients who followed a faith-based path to recovery, I set up The Way Recovery center to serve the need for that form of counseling in our community. Working with highly experienced counselors, clinicians and drug and alcohol counselors, we’re excited to bring such a high level of support to those looking for a solution to their behavioral challenges, who maybe don’t have the funds or opportunity to take part in a full-time residential rehab program.


I work with the intention of keeping families together and providing fupport throughout the recovery process. I offer both individual and group therapy for adults and adolescents, to help you to identify the blocks that are holding you back from experiencing the health and happiness you deserve.


The Way Recovery was born out of the need to for an intensive recovery program that produces results, while participants are able to lead normal lives, living at home and going to work.  Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) meets 6 days a week for 6 hours per day.  Our Intensive Outpatient Programs meet 3 days a week for 3 hours per day.   And, of course, many of clients simply participate in weekly individual counseling.
