The Importance of Community Support After Treatment | Banyan Mass

The Importance of Community Support After Treatment


When it comes to maintaining sobriety, support is crucial. Studies show that interacting with recovering peers can support sobriety by helping individuals feel understood and connected with their vulnerability.

Peer support groups also help support accountability both for oneself, and for helping others to maintain their sobriety. However, how can an individual maintain their sober support group after they have completed a residential, outpatient, or an intensive outpatient program in Massachusetts? The key is to connect people with ongoing support for their sobriety, and our team at Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts can help.

What is an Alumni Recovery Program?

An alumni recovery program is a support network that can help a newly sober individual maintain their sobriety. Our alumni recovery program is free to participants of Banyan PHP, IOP, and OP programs. The recovery program connects newly sober individuals with support systems such as other sober people, sponsors, and accountability groups. The Banyan Treatment Center alumni recovery program focuses on helping people live a life of sobriety while having fun and fighting any possibility of relapse. Our alumni recovery program offers a wide variety of benefits, including:

  • Accountability
  • Socialization
  • Sobriety Support
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Emotional Support
  • & Fun!

Members of our alumni recovery program in Massachusetts are never alone in their recovery. That’s because a strong network of fellow sober individuals and recovery experts are always a call away. Our alumni lean on one another for sobriety, along with lifting each other up at the toughest of times. Joining an alumni recovery program can help solidify your sobriety post-treatment.

Joining an Alumni Recovery Program

All alumni of our treatment programs, including our intensive outpatient program in Massachusetts, can join our alumni recovery program. Joining an alumni program can reinforce lessons learned during treatment while easing the transition back to everyday life after completing a treatment program. Whether you received PHP, IOP, or OP treatment, an alumni recovery program can make a big difference in the ease of sobriety maintenance.
