What is Alumni Support?
At Midwest Detox Center, or commitment to you does not end once you complete treatment. We have an obligation to ensure your long-term success. Our caring staff builds a relationship with everyone that walks through our doors for help. Many of our staff know firsthand how critical a support network is to lasting recovery, especially after you have left our program. That is why we offer a robust system of aftercare, including our alumni program.
Our alumni support services help ensure you have access to the tools and resources you need to maintain sobriety and prevent a relapse. Many of our staff are in recovery and have been in similar situations as our clients. They have turned their despair into hope and want to share that with you.
Alumni support provides alumni with informational resources and professional services for sustaining a sober, balanced, healthy lifestyle. Call 833.647.0392 for more information.
Events for Alumni at Midwest Recovery Center
Our alumni support program provides events designed for those in recovery to get back in touch with us, share their experience of recovery, deal with any lingering issues, and receive the empathetic support they need to maintain their sobriety.
We have events on a regular basis to help us establish a community around those who are living in recovery, building and strengthening the connections among us. Our alumni are real people living in recovery every day. We want to share with every individual the fulfillment and peace we have found and be a resource long after you have left our care. Hopefully, you will one day join that alumni support network and be able to offer counsel and support for others.
Alumni Support Reduces the Odds of a Relapse
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the rate of relapse for people dealing with substance use disorder is as low as 40% and as high as 60%. While we provide a foundation for long-term success, we know that once people return to their lives, they are thrust back into situations that can prove challenging. This increases the risk of relapse if proper support structures, such as our alumni support program, are not in place.
Research from the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs also indicates that a combination of treatment, long-term housing, and effective alumni services leads to improved residential stability and reductions in substance use and psychiatric symptoms. Ongoing services for alumni is a form of evidence-based practice that is not overlooked or understated when you receive treatment at Midwest Detox Center.
We Are Here For You When You Need Us
Another beneficial aspect of having an active alumni support program is it gives us the ability to stay in touch with our past clients. If someone were to relapse, they could always come back to us for detox and additional therapy. By staying in touch, we increase the odds that someone will come back to us for help when needed. This provides peace of mind; we know that our alumni do not feel isolated or like they have no one to turn to in times of need.
