Addiction Is a Chronic Disease
Addiction can be managed but not cured. Unfortunately, it is a disease that will stay with you for life. Because we understand how addiction works, we provide a robust alumni program to help you stay the course and help you avoid relapse.
It is essential to understand that relapse is not failure. If you do experience relapse, it is a temporary pothole on the recovery road. During rehab, you learn skills to avoid relapse, and in therapy, work toward understanding your own triggers and underlying risk factors. Understanding your addiction, positive habits, and self-compassion increases your chances of maintaining sobriety once you leave rehab.
Solid peer support is one of the most essential things that helps you stay the course. In a rehab alumni program, it is vital to have access to an ever-expanding group of fellow alums who are there for one another.
How a Rehab Alumni Program Helps
Once you and your therapeutic team decide that you are ready to leave your addiction treatment program, you will transition to an alumni program. It will have scheduled events and touchpoints and will help you:
- Transition back into society and prepare for the unexpected while continuing to learn and practice life skills and coping mechanisms
- Stay connected with staff as well as peers who have also completed treatment
- Engage in sober activities, gatherings, and events that help recent and veteran alums stay in contact with one another
- Avoid the isolation that is so harmful to those in recovery
- Face challenges that arise in your post-discharge life by providing you with support and access to ongoing therapy and staff and peer support
- Feel a sense of purpose and be able to give back to others
- Be accountable and offer a sense of accountability to others in the alumni program
- Know that you belong to something meaningful and lasting
The benefits of an alumni program are many, and the sense of hope and optimism that is fostered cannot be discounted. You and your fellow alums have a common purpose as you traverse the path to long-term healing and recovery. Together, on that journey, you amplify one another’s success.
