What is a Rehab Alumni Program?

What Does a Rehab Alumni Program Provide?

Coordinating Alumni Events

The Genesis House coordinates events and gatherings for current guests and alumni to meet, mingle, network, and simply have fun.

In addition to in-person events, for those graduates and alumni who are now far away from the Florida area and may find it challenging to attend these events, we provide live streams and private group chats on Facebook to keep everyone connected.

Some alumni events will consist of shared group activities. These events are not only fantastic for sparking conversations between current clients and alumni and giving all who are involved a sense of accomplishment, but they may also teach guests new skills.

Fostering a Supportive Environment

The goal of a rehab alumni program is to foster a safe and supportive environment where anyone can feel safe to ask questions. All our clients should have the ability to connect and speak freely with people who have been through treatment and rest assured that they will not be judged or criticized for their questions or inquiries

Online Social Groups and Newsletters

To make it more convenient for all alumni, The Genesis House has social media pages and group chats to keep our guests and alumni connected no matter what the physical distance may be. As previously mentioned, these groups will often meet through remote events.

Finally, the alumni newsletter is another way that we have made it convenient for alumni and guests to stay connected.

Rehab Alumni: What Are the Benefits?

1. Building Strong Mutually-Beneficial Relationships

2. Transitioning Back to Independent Living

Change is almost always a difficult challenge that seems impossible to navigate. But having someone who has made a particular change is much like having a map leading to your destination.

Much like clients and staff would discuss during residential treatment, coping with addiction triggers is an important topic of discussion between current guests and alumni. Guests can learn these mechanisms and life skills from alumni who have successfully applied them to real-life situations.

Additionally, alumni programs work to connect guests with sober living programs for those who require a drug or alcohol-free structured environment to ease their transition.

3. Employment Assistance

Whether guests have put a job on hold to get treatment or haven’t held a job for a significant period of time, returning to work after completing treatment can be a very stressful and challenging task.

For those who want to return to their job, the alumni program can provide assistance for that task. For those who need to search for new employment, there are many benefits that the alumni program can provide.

Firstly, by connecting with alumni who have already re-integrated into independent living, recovering guests can seek new and reliable employment opportunities. The alumni can rest assured in the quality of the treatment their peers have received since they went through the exact same programs.

Secondly, the alumni program provides plenty of supportive services including assisting in the job search, completing job applications, drafting resumes, and preparing for job interviews.

The services provided by the program, in combination with the connections fostered with alumni, give guests an excellent chance of finding employment after their treatments.

4. Fostering Positive Mindsets Through Social Gatherings and Events

Not only are these events an excellent place to give and receive advice about addiction treatment, but it is also a place for people to be inspired and motivated to continue working hard.

Recovering from addiction is easier said than done, but seeing and talking to individuals who have been through treatment and are living a life beyond their addictions can remind guests why they’re in a rehab program and prove to them that the journey is worth making.

Lastly, if nothing else, these events can provide a great opportunity to simply have fun and stay social. After all, social isolation is a common trigger for drug and alcohol addictions.

5. Access to Verified Resources

It’s often difficult to find resources or to even tell apart highly-valuable resources from the clutter. Examples of these resources may include mental health professionals, therapists, employment services, informative and educational materials, databases of mentors, and more.

The alumni program at The Genesis House ensures that all clients get access to valuable resources and support groups that are local to them.
