RECOVERY THROUGH PERSPECTIVE… Perspective Recovery is all about just that, recovering one’s perspective. Taking time to withdraw from an unhealthy and unfulfilling life. Founders, John Riggins and Joshua Paul have a story to tell. They both have a past. They both have experienced the worst of what substance abuse and mental health issues grip can have on a person… NOW THEY PLAN TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.


Welcome to Perspective Recovery. We believe that your past does not have to be your future. We believe in order to overcome life’s hurdles that people must change the people they associate with, the places they frequent and the daily activities in their lives. Perspective Recovery Founders, John and Joshua take this tried and true method to the next level. They believe that while changing people, places, and things is a huge part of an initial perspective change, they also believe that the person seeking the perspective change must reevaluate their lives and focus on mental and spiritual healing while creating a new list of goals and life objectives.

Perspective Recovery is the world's most unique wellness program.

Perspective Recovery is the World’s most unique wellness program. Our program offers proven treatment methods tailored specifically to the needs of each client. This program and its resort-style facilities are unlike any other addiction recovery program in the World. After arriving at one of our breathtaking Wellness Retreat’s, mental and emotional healing will begin. As the program progresses, in our first target, you will learn to love life again through activities such as surf lessons, volcano tours, zip-lining, jungle hikes, ATV rides, horseback riding, and the most amazing sunsets. While these fun activities will awaken your zest for what life has to offer, simultaneously, these activities will help flush out all toxins in the body and cleans you for the next phase of mental healing.

The second target of mental healing will be accomplished through the proven methods of peer group sessions as well as one on one sessions with our staff psychiatrists and program counselors. Perspective Recovery also adds a unique method that is scientifically proven to cause mental healing, however, has never been used in a wellness program before. This method is the act of selflessness and the opportunity to give back in a real way. It has been proven that when a person helps another human being and that help is given with no expectation of profit or return, that self-worth and pride flood the individual giving the help to the person in need. At Perspective Recovery, we have created a way for you to give back to someone with far less opportunity in life. While Perspective’s Wellness Retreat’s  are beautiful, they are also located in Third world countries battling unbelievable poverty. The local people in most cases face lack of electricity, lack of clean drinking water, lack of proper shelter, and lack of food.

local non-profits and mission groups

Perspective Recovery has built a network with local communities and villages to bring our clients into the community to work with the local people,  non-profits, and mission groups… This is HUGE for the recovery process. You see, a person battling with addiction or mental illness has been in an altered state of mind for months or even years. This state of mind includes the feeling of loss of self-worth and pride. With Perspective Recovery’s unique approach to community involvement in a third world setting, not only do we build back up each client’s self-value and pride, but through this approach we also open our client’s eyes to a new PERSPECTIVE in life.

To accomplish the target of a renewed emotional healing, Perspective Recovery focuses heavily on family and loved one relationship restoration. While we do spend time working through emotional voids and processes to fix these voids, we believe that after the clients stay at Perspective Recovery Wellness Retreat is over that their support system of family and loved ones needs to be stronger than ever. Perspective Recovery wants each client to leave knowing that they have a support system who wants the best for their future. Therefore, the third step in our program focuses heavily on building that support system back up to a level that our clients have never seen before!

a new PERSPECTIVE on life

Recovery starts with the first step

At perspective recovery, our goals are to:


To step away… Step away from people that we typically associate with. Step away from places we frequent. Step away from things we are used to having in our daily lives. In order to refocus your mind, it is vital to remove yourself from day to day normality’s in your life. Perspective Recovery stands apart here as we take this core theory to the next level. Our strategic and hand picked destinations are the PERSPECTIVE change you have been needing.


We are then able to realign our perspective when we learn to accept and take responsibility for the way things have been in our life. No matter the circumstances of your current situation in life, when we take full responsibility for our actions and how we control the direction of our lives, a new World of opportunity opens up to us.


The most crucial part of a perspective change is creating a plan to keep your newfound perspective fresh in your mind and to train yourself always to be open to learning how to grow as an individual.
At Perspective Recovery, we help the individual create a clear and attainable list of goals to strive for in every area of your life. We create the road map and give our guests a lifetime GPS subscription to reach these goals.
