What is an Alumni Program?
Our alumni program is designed to keep previous clients engaged in the recovery process through a large network of alumni who have graduated from the Garden State Treatment Center program. Support and guidance are the two primary goals of our alumni program. In-person and virtual meetings and events are held regularly throughout the year, and any alumni who would like to attend may do so to receive support and ongoing accountability throughout the active recovery process and integration into a healthy life post-treatment.
Why Should I Participate in the Alumni Program?
While recovery from any addiction is a personal journey, at Garden State Treatment Center, we know that building camaraderie with those who have experienced similar challenges is important during the recovery process. When addiction treatment has concluded, the work has not ended! Learning to live with sobriety is part of the ongoing process of recovery, and participation in our alumni program is a fantastic way to ensure lasting success. The program offers a place to meet with others who are clean & sober, discuss challenges and difficulties you may be facing, as well as receive encouragement and support. For some participants, being a supportive encourager to others is just as important as seeking advice and support for themselves.
Addiction treatment programs are extremely short in length when compared to living the rest of your life through the sustained recovery process. We have designed an alumni program that will grow with you as your continued sobriety and life merge into one. Our dedicated alumni coordinators create opportunities for you to meet and get to know others who are successfully meeting the challenges of real life in a variety of social settings. While these are vital to your recovery support, we also want you to have some fun with others that value a sober lifestyle. Some of the activities you can expect from our alumni program include:
- Alumni fellowship meetings designed to create opportunities as sober social activities
- In-person and virtual options to meet your health and emotional needs as well as the convenience of fitting in activities with work, school, or other personal obligations
- Opportunities to go to local events, games, or take part in other social situations that would be comfortable and supportive with others in a substance-free environment
- Coordinators that will organize and take part in regularly scheduled meetings as well as social events to provide ongoing support and advice in real-life situations
