Recovery is a lifelong commitment. At Midwest Recovery Center, we understand that you will be learning how to handle stress, anxiety, and past trauma in healthy ways for a long time to come. While admitting that you need help is an important first step, recovery continues even after you’ve completed an addiction treatment program at Midwest Recovery. Many individuals in our care need lifelong support in order to stay sober—not because they are too weak to handle recovery, but because they are strong enough to admit they need help. In our alumni program, you’ll find the support of others who have experienced similar struggles.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, while addiction can absolutely be treated successfully, many people relapse on their road to recovery. For this reason, we designed our alumni program to be a source of support and encouragement for after you leave our addiction treatment center. Many people find support from 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, friends, or family. However, our staff and your peers uniquely understand your struggles. Our goal is to help you achieve lasting sobriety. That’s why we’ve built our alumni program to help.
The Benefits of an Alumni Program
How do alumni programs work? While you might have support outside of the addiction treatment center from family and friends, they might not have experienced addiction themselves. Though they want to be supportive, they will not always understand your struggles. However, those who are in recovery with you know the temptations you face and the difficulties of daily life. When you’re connected to our alumni program, you can reach out to those peers for help.
You’ll even be a source of support for others through our alumni program. Many of our alumni report that the opportunity to not only receive support but also give it is a way that they find purpose. You can help your own sobriety by listening to others as they go through difficult times and supporting those who need it most.
What You Can Expect from Our Alumni Program
Our goal is to help you turn despair into hope and create a new life for yourself. Doing this rests upon the connections you can find in recovery. We hold events for alumni on a regular basis to help provide support through good times and bad times. We are an outlet for those who are struggling, and we always take time to celebrate the joys of life. Our alumni are real people living recovery every day. We want to share with every individual the fulfillment and peace we have found, and be a resource long after you have left our care.
We are also committed to this community. By coordinating with other treatment centers, non-profit organizations, hospitals, and foundations, we can address drug and alcohol addiction treatment from all sides. Breaking the stigmas around addiction, raising awareness of our work, and connecting with our community help us to carry out our mission.
