Addiction recovery doesn’t end when you leave a rehab center. In fact, it’s just the beginning. When you leave a treatment center, it’s up to you to use the tools and skills you’ve learned to maintain your sobriety. However, this can be difficult to do alone. Fortunately, Victory Bay offers an alumni program that provides the support you need after leaving treatment.
What Is Victory Bay’s Alumni Program?
Our alumni program is a network of current and previous clients who work together to support each other throughout their recovery. When you leave Victory Bay, it may be difficult to transition back into your everyday life. You’ll be faced with people, situations, and environments that could trigger a relapse. During this time, you need people who understand you and can support your recovery. This is where Victory Bay’s Alumni Program comes in.
Our Alumni Coordinator organizes events, hosts cook-out dinners, facilitates support groups, and acts as a mentor for others in recovery. Our alumni program provides the opportunity for everyone from Victory Bay to connect and share their experience, strength, and hope. This setting offers a safe and secure space for advice, expression, and companionship for all alumni members.
Benefits of an Alumni Program
There are several benefits to participating in our alumni program. First, it connects you with other people who understand your addiction and recovery. Many people return home after treatment and have a difficult time finding a connection and people who understand what they’re going through. Our alumni program aims to fill that gap and allows people to develop connections with those who understand them.
Second, the Victory Bay alumni community offers opportunities for learning and education. While the support network allows people to learn from the stories of others, it also provides a space for people to share their stories and help others. Sometimes, one of the most rewarding experiences is providing advice and support to someone in a difficult situation. This not only helps this person get through a hard time, but it also gives you the chance to grow by supporting others.
Finally, our alumni program provides accountability. When you begin living independently outside of a treatment facility, there’s no longer a structure to your life. This lack of structure can easily lead to a relapse. Victory Bay alumni community helps maintain that structure, so you feel accountable to others. Rather than maintaining your sobriety just for yourself, you’re also being held to the expectations of your peers.
