BWR Alumni Recovery Community

Tremendous effort has been put forth by the patient and their family members in committing to the successful completion of a drug and alcohol rehab program. Indeed, your completion of treatment and entry into emotional and substance-related recovery should be celebrated by all. It is likely that you now feel “healed,” and are ready to again face the world with you newly gained and positive outlook. It is at this stage of recovery that patients and their family members may wish to quickly jump forward with their lives, seeking to recreate the past as it was before the chains of addiction bound them.

However, it is important to remember that upon leaving the safety a drug and alcohol treatment center, there will be many challenges to face. Some may have been predicted and a coping strategy developed for them. There will also be unexpected twists in turns that occur during the course of normal living. Having learned new, healthy coping skills, it may be difficult to understand the pressures that you will face, and the simple, but taxing fact that cravings for drugs and alcohol will occur from time-to-time. Rest assured that your recovery will be tested daily.

It is because of the chronic nature of addiction, and the lack of a “cure,” that we state that patients are “recovering” from drugs and alcohol, rather than to say that they are “recovered.” Patients who are discharged from Behavioral Wellness and Recovery’s drug and alcohol treatment program will do so with a comprehensive aftercare and long-term recovery plan. It is important to put in place the use of this plan immediately upon your departure from our program.

BWR Commitment to Alumni

Behavioral Wellness and Recovery wishes to provide our alumni with every support possible during and after your transition out of our program. We will contact you on a regular basis to answer any questions, to help problem solve any new issues that arise, and to give you and your family the support required to maintain and healthy lifestyle.

As part of our commitment to you, we have developed a free, comprehensive alumni program. This program will allow you to maintain contact with our recovering community, provide you direction on how to located appropriate recovery-based resources in your area, and to provide emotional support during challenging times. Even more important is the message that you can give to our newly sober patients. By delivering the message that recovery, health, and vitality are achievable and within grasp of everyone, despite the challenges that have been faced, one can help themselves by helping others and maintaining positive recovery connections.

Our Alumni Coordinator will participate in your recovery during and after your transition into the community. We will also help you maintain contact with other alumni in and out of your area. We will also provide you with resources on recovery and a quarterly newsletter.

Behavioral Wellness and Recovery (BWR) highly encourages all our patients to become involved in the free recovery Alumni Program! We want to walk with you every step of the way on your recovery journey. Even if you won’t be able to participate in all aspects of the Alumni Program, it’s important for your long-term recovery to participate in the activities that you can. Our Alumni Program offers an array of services.

While in treatment patients will be able to attend a presentation about the Alumni Program at Behavioral Wellness and Recovery. The presentation will cover topics such as:


  • The benefits of joining our Alumni Program
  • How patients can get involved in the recovering community
  • The events they can look forward to attending in the future
  • How to reach out for help after leaving treatment

Each patient will have the opportunity to meet with our Alumni Coordinator prior to discharge to review the program and to discuss their level of interest in becoming involved in our Alumni Program. Patients will be encouraged to reflect on their future goals after receiving treatment at Behavioral Wellness and Recovery. These goals will be revisited when the Alumni Coordinator provides outreach and support.


Each patient will have the opportunity to express feedback about the program and to provide a written, video, or audio testimonial. Through understanding each patient’s experience in treatment and hearing about their emotional journey, the Alumni Coordinator will begin to build a rapport with each person.


All patients will be invited to connect with staff and alumni after discharge through our closed and private BWR Alumni Facebook Group. The group is closed so that only members of the Behavioral Wellness and Recovery community can view its material. The group is also private so that patient confidentiality is protected. This is an interactive and inspirational space for our alumni to remain connected to their peers and stay on the path of recovery in a safe forum. Updates for the BWR community, uplifting messages, and future events are shared with group to keep everyone informed. The Alumni Coordinator sends email blasts with valuable information to those who do not have social media accounts.


The Alumni Coordinator organizes and executes various events for BWR alumni and their recovery alliance. These events are another opportunity to maintain relationships with peers, and have access to fun and sober activities. Each event is a chance to encourage growth within each patient’s family unit and the BWR community. Alumni meetings are held, where alumni who have maintained sobriety for over 6 months are invited to be speakers.

Sobriety is a lifetime goal that may be difficult to achieve without a solid support system and the necessary resources. Through continual outreach after our 42-day program, BWR strives to maintain relationships with each patient and provide them with support along the way. Our Alumni Coordinator contacts every person who has attended our program, beginning one day after discharge up until 180 days after leaving BWR. Alumni have the opportunity on these phone calls to ask for help, talk to someone about the struggles they are currently facing, and receive motivation to stay clean.
