One of the most important steps on the road to recovery is entering treatment at a recovery center. If you’ve completed a treatment program at Awakenings Recovery Center, such as our residential treatment program or our men’s or women’s rehab program, you might wonder what your next steps should be. Re-entering everyday life can be challenging. While we offer an aftercare program that provides ongoing support, many of our clients also benefit from participating in our alumni program.
The support you will receive from your peers during and after treatment is vital. In group therapy, you learn from others about their experiences in sobriety and how they handle stress and other triggers in healthy ways. As you readjust to life at home and at work, having this support can be incredibly helpful.
At Awakenings Recovery, our services don’t end once you leave our care. Once you have completed your course of treatment with us, your support network will be a critical factor in helping you to avoid relapse. Our alumni program offers support when you need it and opportunities for you to give back.

The Benefits of an Alumni Program
A strong support network is one of the most critical ingredients in recovery. And of course, it will not be limited to just your peers in recovery; it will also include friends and family. But as a member of our alumni program, you will maintain contact with a group of individuals who uniquely understand what you are going through.
As a member of the alumni program, you will also be a part of someone else’s support network when they reach out to you. Our alumni regularly contact us about how helpful being able to be there for someone else is recovery. It can help strengthen your own sobriety by giving you opportunities to listen, understand, and support the people who need you the most. In this way, helping your peers is a way of extending your own recovery. And this is one of the main reasons we established our alumni program.
We have built an extensive alumni program in MD and across the country. Your peers in recovery are some of the best resources at your disposal. They know what you have been through, what you are going through now, and have struggled with many of the same issues that you have. The main goal of our alumni program is to give anyone who wants to continue that support the chance to do so.
What to Expect as Part of the Awakenings Alumni Program
As a member of our alumni program, you will have the chance to give and receive support from your peers in a wide variety of ways. Some of the ways that you can participate include:
