Alumni: Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment Center in Southern California

Our Mission, Your Recovery

At The Discovery House, the longevity of your recovery is most important to us. We want you to feel at home while you’re with us, but we also want you to feel at home out in the “real world.” That’s why we equip you with a strong foundation and education in drug and alcohol addiction, the disease concept, and various types of therapy. So that you’re ready to live your life to its fullest. An alumni program is just one of the many ways we help you stay committed to your recovery.

“Studies show the key factor to a successful recovery within the first year is continued care beyond residential treatment.”

We offer and encourage participation in our alumni program to all those who have completed any of our treatment programs. The alumni association regularly schedules outings, provides mentorship, and meets monthly. This group will help to establish and maintain a connection with the recovery community. It’s also a great way to stay connected and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, the group regularly undertakes projects and fundraising efforts that benefit the community at large.

Once you’ve established a solid foundation of recovery at our residential drug treatment center, you can begin participating in some alumni-related events. We have a private Facebook support group that you will be invited to join in and a monthly newsletter with all the updates you need to know. We also have a running schedule of meetings that you can attend weekly.

You’ve finished rehab but don’t think the work stops here. This is where you are going to have to take everything you learned in treatment and apply it to your life in the real world. If that sounds scary to you, don’t worry. When you complete residential treatment, your therapist will work with you to create a customised aftercare or discharge plan. Having a plan will help you to implement what you have learned, stay focused on working your program, and maintain long-term recovery.
