Figuring out how to bond, have fun, and relax around other people without drugs our alcohol can be a scary idea, especially in early recovery. There can be a considerable amount of anxiety or awkwardness, especially if you’re unsure how to make new friends in recovery. Luckily, our alumni recovery program is here to help. Here’s how you can make new friends in sobriety when you join our alumni program.
Our alumni program was designed to give patients an instant sober support system after completing treatment. Anyone who has finished drug and alcohol treatment knows how important a sober friend group can be. A sober friend group can give you the guidance you need to stay on track in recovery. Making friends in our alumni program means you’re befriending other former patients who share in your desire to stay sober. There’s no pressure to drink or use. Instead, alumni program members enjoy fun activities with likeminded sober men and women.
Unless they’ve gone through recovery themselves, people aren’t likely to understand what you’re going through in your recovery. While they may be sympathetic, they simply can’t understand what you’ve gone through to achieve sobriety. Our alumni program is the perfect opportunity to connect with a sober support system that understands what you’re going through, because they’ve all been there too.
We all know how important it is to get the right kind of support in sobriety. Members of our alumni program connect regularly both online and in person to discuss their challenges, offer solutions, and enjoy some fun as well. The best perk of joining such a program is that you’ll always have someone by your side who believes in you and your recovery.
