Addiction changes us internally and externally. It interferes with many aspects of our lives. When we are addicted, we are held hostage to using drugs and alcohol. Addiction makes us feel isolated, lonely, scared, and helpless. When you enter treatment, you establish short and long-term goals so you can start your journey in recovery. When treatment ends, you can stay connected through the alumni program.
The alumni program
The alumni program is designed to keep you close and committed to the program, which provides a new life in recovery. Treatment helps you plan for a new sober lifestyle. In treatment, you will learn the root of the addiction while cleansing your mind, body, and spirit. The alumni program introduces you to others who come back to share their testimony.
Life after treatment can be lonely, scary, and overwhelming. Weekly alumni meetings help you to stay in contact with others. It is comforting to know others who are going through similar experiences. The alumni program offers opportunities to meet other sober people who you can call on during difficult times. It also is a great way to develop new friendships and network with others.
Holistic therapy focuses on healing for your mental, physical, and spiritual health. After treatment, you are recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind, body, and spirit. In recovery, you will be inspired to go out and embrace the new life ahead of you. Shed your old identity and become who you are, authentically and internally.
The alumni program can encourage you to stay on track with sobriety. A smaller group size allows family members get to be more involved with therapists during and after treatment.
A sober mentor is a way to maintain accountability and support beyond treatment. Mentor responsibilities can include:
- Assessing your mood, behavior, and relationships
- Confirming work/school commitments
- Ensuring cleanliness and personal hygiene
- Accompanying you to 12-Step meetings
- Acting as a sober companion for trips or events
