Recovery is not a straight line. You will experience both immediate and gradual changes; exciting victories, and challenging obstacles that will impact your mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. These changes are unavoidable, and often will help shape your character and relationships in sobriety, but nonetheless can challenges to your recovery.
Sobriety is a lifelong journey and during that time you are bound to face difficulties. Your odds of success through these difficulties are much better when you are involved in a supportive community that provides support and healing when you need it most.
Simple Recovery Alumni Connection
The Simple Recovery Alumni Connection consists of one time weekly group on Wednesday nights held at our outpatient campus in Costa Mesa, CA. Alumni are encouraged and invited to regularly scheduled fun-in-recovery activities, such as game nights, bowling, bonfires, etc. with the support of the alumni program.
When you join the alumni support group at Simple Recovery, you are in a safe space free from judgment. During these weekly meetings, you’re met with compassion and understanding from peers who can give you advice applicable to your personal challenges, such as recovery after treatment, returning to work or school, recovery events, involvement in therapy, and more. If you are looking to help others who are struggling with addiction, you can also utilize the Alumni Connection to help share experience, strength and hope.
Alumni support begins during your recovery in residential treatment, where you will be introduced to WeConnect Recovery and alumni resources. As you continue to build bonds with your peers and the Simple Recovery team, you will learn more about the alumni program and how to participate after treatment.
Alumni for Family
Our families of clients also have a lifelong journey of recovery ahead. Simple Recovery families are given opportunity to attend our bi-weekly family/community support group facilitated by Program Supervisor, and Family Program facilitator, Chris Logan. This support groups serves as a safe environment for families to discuss their own recovery challenges experienced when a loved one returns home.
