Benefits of our Aftercare Alumni Program
Ongoing Relapse Prevention Support
Each client leaves Akua Behavioral Health with a customized post-treatment plan, laying out essential relapse prevention skills that are needed to ensure ongoing success with day-to-day stressors. Once individuals re-enter living and work environments, they discover additional issues that could threaten their ongoing recovery. Our alumni coordinators provide mentorship and peer support as well as community resources to assist our graduates succeed in their desired life goals and apply the skills learned in treatment to everyday life.
Weekly Alumni Meetings
Alumni actively participate and attend our Weekly Alumni Meetings where we celebrate each client’s milestone, encourage peer support, plan social events and retreats. These weekly meetings also give our Alumni an opportunity to mentor clients presently in treatment with us. Our Alumni assist in leading discussion, share their journey of recovery, and offer support to others in recovery. Our weekly meetings serve as ongoing, indefinite process that help our clients maintain function and recovery after finishing treatment with us. Our Alumni coordinators meet with clients while engaged in services and make frequent phone calls/texts and provide in person support to ensure the best chance at long term recovery.
