What is the alumni program at Banyan Treatment, and how does it help me stay connected to my recovery community? At Banyan Treatment, we believe it’s important to stay connected with friends. Some people meet lifelong best friends while in drug treatment. Or sometimes reuniting with someone who’s gone through the same thing as you can be an immensely rewarding experience. To help with that aspect, our alumni department focuses on helping you stay connected with us and our community, including the larger community of recoverers that you go through drug treatment with. This is a great way to motivate yourself and stay strong in your recovery. Click here to learn more about the benefits of being sober.
What Does the Alumni Program Do for Fun?
What are some of the things that the alumni department does? It’s important to remember that drug treatment doesn’t have to only be serious and dull. While it is something that’s important and requires a lot of work, that doesn’t mean that fun can’t be involved. In fact, just as laughter is the best medicine, fun can be highly important as a therapeutic approach. It’s also great for keeping communities together. With that in mind, we offer alumni outings to help people stay in contact, stay motivated and have a good time, including:
- Deep-sea fishing
- Seeing movies
- Rock climbing
- Beach volleyball.
In other words, we have a lot of fun together! Click here to learn more about the 10 best cities to stay sober in.
How Can the Alumni Program Keep Me Focused?
What are some of the ways that the alumni department helps me stay connected? Staying connected during and after your drug treatment is a very important goal. You obviously don’t want to just drop off the face of the earth after you’ve completed drug treatment. That’s why we offer weekly 12-step speaker events that will inspire you to maintain and build on your recovery. We also send out a monthly newsletter to all of our alumni, listing free community events, resources for recovery, and the activities that we plan as part of our alumni program. These newsletters are also full of valuable information such as employment opportunities, or ways that you can get involved in the community.
