Completing treatment is an accomplishment but we don't want that to be the end of our support. We stress the individual's ties to our treatment facility and community well beyond discharge. We recommend continuing care through once-a-week Aftercare sessions with Alumni. These groups allow an individual to have continued support when needed indefinitely. It's also a great way to stay connected.
This group has a wider circle of experience, including those with long-term sobriety as well as people straight out of treatment. It usually is a "check-in" meeting, an opportunity for people to report on things that impacted their sobriety that week.
The Aftercare/Alumni meeting is a very safe place to discuss the problems of new sobriety.
