Aftercare is an essential part of the therapeutic process. Recovery is continuous and does not have an end point. Here at Fair Oaks Recovery Center, we are committed to providing care beyond our PHP and IOP programs. We do this because we are invested in positive outcomes for our clients. We want every client who passes through our doors to have a long, successful recovery with all of the wonderful experiences that sobriety has to offer. We also realize that health insurance only covers so much and that private pay may not be an option for all clients. To that end, Fair Oaks provides a free, continuous alumni program to assist clients in maintaining their sobriety after completion of the program. Alumni of Fair Oaks Recovery Center may attend the Alumni Group for as long as they like dependent upon remaining sober, obeying all group rules, and being a constructive, positive member of the Fair Oaks community.
The Alumni Group is held once a week in the evening. Alumni is a forum for clients to remain connected, provide support to each other, and potentially engage in pro-social community activities together. To qualify for the Alumni Group, a client must successfully complete treatment at Fair Oaks Recovery Center. The Alumni Group is just one more way that Fair Oaks invests in their community and their clients by providing free support long after program completion. It is our hope that the Alumni Group will become a positive presence in the community and model to others what it is like to lead sober lives. By advocating for sobriety, and by extension addiction treatment, others will be drawn toward the Fair Oaks community and encouraged to engage in sober fun themselves.
Resources about ongoing care can be found on our blog and in our alumni Facebook group.
