Recovery can be a journey of twists and turns. Through our alumni program, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way. Through educational workshops, wellness events, fun outings, and dinners, you connect with others who share the same desire to live a happy and healthy life free of alcohol and drugs.
Alumni Events & Gatherings
Building new, healthy friendships and relearning how to have fun sober helps to keep you engaged and happy in your recovery, which is why we offer monthly events to help you do just that. Our events are an opportunity to go outside of your comfort zone, rediscover your passions, give back to the community, and form lasting bonds.
Giving back to the community not only helps others but also strengthens your recovery by helping you cultivate a sense of gratitude. By helping you discover a new purpose and feel more accomplished, volunteering places you in a more positive frame of mind that fosters personal growth, emotional development, and spiritual strength.
Alumni Share Night Speakers

Additional Recovery Resources
Staying connected to a strong support system provides invaluable benefits when recovering from substance abuse. Peer support group meetings provide you a safe space to share your feelings, emotions, setbacks, and successes, and help you gain additional perspectives on challenges you may face and advice on how to overcome them. Most of all, peer support groups remind you that in recovery, you are never alone.
