Joel Bagley’s experience with recovery began with his teenage son entering treatment in 1996. The recovery experience was so transformative for their entire family that Joel soon left his corporate career in communications and became an addictions counselor. In 2003 Joel and his son opened a level 3 recovery residence, Purple Inc, in Atlanta GA. Joel has always believed in the power of community in recovery and as a result Purple built an alumni community of hundreds of young men who will always find an open door and a supportive listening ear. Joel served as president of GARR, the Georgia Association of Recovery Residences and was instrumental in the formation of National Alliance of Recovery Residences. Joel also has a passion for helping small business owners and in 2015 was certified as a coach for entrepreneurs who want to grow a heart centered business.
