We didn’t set out to create an alumni program at Viewpoint; staying in touch and hosting post-treatment events developed organically. As you’ll notice when you visit, Viewpoint is not your typical mental health center. Our therapists at Viewpoint have a sincere desire to follow through with clients post-treatment, and we recognize the healing power of helping people stay connected.
Post-Treatment Social Support
Having a solid support network after completing treatment can help keep people connected, focused, and accountable. At Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center, we know how meaningful connections to other people in mental health recovery can be. Our goal is to help clients stay supported as they continue their mental health journeys beyond our treatment center. When you complete one of our treatment programs, you will be able to reconnect with friends and meet new ones at one of our events throughout the year.
We are excited to offer alumni housing to clients who have graduated from one of our mental health treatment programs. This is an excellent option for people who may feel socially or geographically isolated and want to have easy access to events, transportation, and psychological care. You can look forward to the following in our alumni housing programs:
- Structured independent living
- Solid social support
- A network of others in recovery
- Alumni events and networking
Traditional Prescott sober living homes do not provide the mental health services that many clients need. At Viewpoint we are committed to helping people succeed, not cycle in and out of treatment. We believe the best way to do this is to promote independent living with support as needed. Our men’s and women’s alumni housing programs serve as excellent post-treatment options for clients and their families.
One advantage of an alumni program is helping people protect their progress. Being surrounded by people who have experienced similar struggles helps people feel relaxed and open to new experiences. It adds an additional layer of accountability to your recovery as well. You can lean on friends around you when life’s struggles get you down. Whether you received treatment at Viewpoint for a mental health condition or dual diagnosis, our alumni program is open to all.
Our alumni events provide continuous reinforcement from our extensive sober community. Through our events and opportunities to meet up with other alumni, you learn how to have fun without using drugs or alcohol. A few examples include:
- Sporting events
- Art classes
- Community service
During these activities, you’ll maintain your sobriety and build lifelong friendships and relationships. An alumni program is an excellent way to meet nonjudgmental people who can relate to things you’ve gone through. You won’t feel the need to explain why you don’t drink or use recreational drugs. You won’t need to feel embarrassed about having struggled with mental health. In short, you will have the freedom to be independent with additional support when you need it.
Staying Busy After Treatment
An alumni program allows you to stay busy and learn new relapse prevention techniques in a safe environment. When you connect with other people who struggle with mental health or a dual diagnosis, you can stay active, share strategies, and feel supported. Additionally, you are more motivated to maintain your recovery and stick to your goals.
