The Banyan Treatment Centers addiction treatment Alumni Program in Chicago is free and offered to individuals who have completed any of our levels of substance abuse treatment.

We also offer a wide variety of substance-specific rehab programs in Naperville that treat different forms of addiction, allowing us to expand our services and help as many people as possible.
Importance of Aftercare in Addiction Treatment
Substance abuse treatment is an important first step toward building a sober lifestyle. During treatment, clients learn coping skills, relapse prevention strategies, and other important skills they can use to avoid slipping back into addictive behaviors. Rehab facilities like our Chicago addiction treatment center provide the ideal environment for clients to stay clean and sober.
This addiction aftercare program focuses on providing patients with constant support throughout their recovery along with other individuals who are in a similar situation. Our addiction treatment alumni program focuses on offering patients the assistance they need to maintain their sobriety and prevent relapse from occurring.
Although relapse is not inevitable, it’s still a big concern for individuals in recovery, regardless of how long they’ve been sober. Therefore, the importance of aftercare in addiction treatment comes down to the prevention of relapse.
Our aftercare treatment for addiction helps clients who have completed our Chicago PHP or IOP stay connected to others in the recovery community. Growth is constant in the journey to sobriety, and our addiction aftercare programs help alleviate some of the struggles that may present themselves along the way.
What Is a Rehab Alumni Program?
Rehab alumni programs are beneficial for people who have completed any drug or alcohol treatment. This alumni program allows our patients to connect with others who have also completed treatment and are in a similar stage of recovery.
In the alumni program, members can build friendships with like-minded individuals and share their recovery struggles and achievements. The main purpose of this program is to help sustain patients’ recovery journeys by keeping them linked to our Banyan recovery family.
We provide all members with resources to help them maintain a healthy and sober lifestyle. We can guarantee that participating in our alumni recovery program will allow patients to gain skills that are beneficial to their lives after rehab.
Our team also helps clients create an effective addiction aftercare plan they can follow as they transition to a sober lifestyle. These addiction aftercare plans may include:
- Moving into sober living
- Transitioning into an intensive outpatient program
- Consistent check-ins with counselors or case managers
- Participating in individual or group therapy sessions
- Attending recovery meetings, such as 12-step
- Finding a sponsor or sober mentor
- Setting up a support system to lean on after treatment
