Welcome back. We are here to discuss alumni programs and how they can help with addiction recovery. If you missed our previous blog be sure to click on the link you'll find at the end of this post to learn more.
Oftentimes, recovering addicts have problems with triggers. They may need help with coping skills and problem solving. Aftercare helps individuals stay in touch with their emotions and feelings and reminds them how to avoid negative thoughts, behaviors, or daily triggers.
Alumni programs help recovering addicts stay in touch with the recovery community. They’ll be surrounded by others who are going through the same things they are. Peer support is important during recovery.
Alumni therapy can help reduce the chances of relapse. According to NIDA, relapse for substance abuse can be as high as 60% if some type of aftercare therapy isn’t taken advantage of after addiction treatment.
Alumni programs offer things like monthly sober activities, support group meetings, social media groups, 24 hour hotlines, addiction education workshops, national meetings, weekly meetings, group sessions taught by former substance abusers, email connections, annual reunions, and more.
Stay tuned for more on how alumni programs or aftercare can help you in recovery!
