Discharge from our program isn’t good-bye
When you are discharged from one of our treatment programs at The Discovery House, you will have some good relapse prevention tools, talents and education to help you stay sober. But what if you feel you need to touch base with us?
The relationships that you will develop during your stay at The Discovery House are ongoing, long-term and important to us as well!
Monthly Alumni Meetings
You are welcome and encouraged to join us every third Wednesday of the month for our standing Alumni meeting. You will be able to stay in touch with friends that you made during rehab, as well as make new ones. You’ll get to touch base with TDH staff to let them know how you are doing.
Part of our alumni program is social, and part of it is peer designed and staff supported relapse prevention group activities. Each monthly meeting is a bit of both.
Alumni programs mean strong relapse prevention
As a member of The Discovery House alumni program you will always have numbers to call, and people to turn to, who understand that the transition home or into a new life of sobriety isn’t always easy.
Our alumni group has planned outings to help you understand that having fun is more than getting drunk or using drugs. You will also be able to take an active part in the planning and participation in community volunteer activities. You’ll continue learning to enjoy your life in a healthy and sober way. This is one of the core components to a good relapse prevention plan.
Not knowing what to do, or who to turn to, in times of crisis can lead back into the substance abuse nightmare that you want to leave behind. A relapse prevention program that includes alumni meetings at The Discovery House means that you will always have a supportive group to turn to when you need them most.
We’re here for you for the long-term, and not just until you are discharged.
