Relapse Prevention Plans are Key
The treatment team here at Adolescent Growth recognizes the importance of relapse prevention. During their stay each client is assisted in creating a detailed relapse prevention plan. These plans are individually designed for the teen and his or her family. Each plan is a set of practical skills and tools for drug, alcohol and eating disorder relapse prevention for teens.
Adolescent Growth Alumni Group for Relapse Prevention
Aftercare is an extremely important part of recovery and all of our graduates are encouraged to attend our Alumni Group as a part of their relapse prevention plan. The alumni group is free of charge and open to all past clients who have completed the program successfully. The Alumni Group is designed to support past clients and help them stay on track throughout their recovery. It is a great way for them to stay in touch with their peers in recovery and receive ongoing support from our certified clinicians.
Teens who enter recovery together often develop strong bonds. Many feel very comfortable sharing their fears and their failures with their peers in recovery and prefer their support over family and friends. The adolescent’s peers in treatment become an important part of their support network. Once the teen leaves treatment it is very beneficial for them to keep in touch with the good influence of their peers in recovery. Monthly support meetings allow them to keep in touch and provides regular accountability.
The alumni group is typically offered on the last Wednesday of each month. If you are interested in joining the alumni group you can contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always happy to stay in touch with our past clients and we are wish to continue to support them even after their discharge. At Adolescent Growth we realize that recovery is a process that continues long after the client’s date of discharge.
The alumni group focuses on recovery and relapse prevention but it also includes some food and fun as well. We feel so strongly in the value of our alumni group that we offer it free of charge.
If you are of one our alumni you are welcome to join us for food, fun, freedom and support at our next alumni meeting. We hope to see you all there.
