Alumni programs are tailored to help individuals who have completed drug detox and addiction treatment. This program is also called aftercare. Many times, those who have recovered from drug abuse struggle hard to get back into their daily lifestyle after addiction. The transition is challenging for many reasons. Even with a positive mindset and outlook, it can still be difficult to go from one extreme to the other. This is the main reason for an alumni program. It will help recovering addicts make a smoother transition from rehab to real life.
Throughout the last few blog posts, we have been talking about why aftercare is beneficial for those recovering from addiction. Here you will find a few more reasons.
Those recovering from drug abuse will be in touch with people who can understand what they’ve been through. They also understand what they’re currently going through. Everyone in the alumni program shares a common goal. That is to be happy, healthy, and drug free. Together, individuals can connect and socialize without feeling like they will be at risk for triggers or relapse. They can grow and develop together, all while becoming stronger and better able to cope with the triggers and struggles that come during recovery.
For more, head over to our final installment of this blog series. We will have additional information on why alumni programs can be a great tool for recovering addicts.
