An addiction treatment program’s responsibility doesn’t end when you walk out the door. Research shows that a robust alumni program increases the probability that a graduate will maintain long-term sobriety, and Elan Recovery + Wellness continues to build out its strong alumni offerings for three crucial reasons:

  • We want you to stay sober, forever.
  • You need a sober community to support you.
  • Our job doesn’t end when you coin out.

At Elan Recovery + Wellness, we work hard to maintain a connection with our graduates. We know that continued involvement through aftercare and alumni events can be crucial to maintaining long-term sobriety.

Elan’s alumni events are designed to create a community of engagement, which is especially crucial in the early stages of navigating a sober life. Leaving the addiction treatment environment can be frightening. After all, you’re now asked to create and maintain a sober lifestyle for yourself. Being an active participant in a supportive community helps so much.

Elan Recovery + Wellness offers a number of alumni opportunities:

  • Monthly social events.
  • A closed Facebook page for alumni, where participants can stay connected and support one another.
  • Standing invitation to attend a primary care group, if a graduate is feeling challenged.
  • Ongoing telephone contact with Elan’s alumni coordinator.
  • Continuing access to Elan’s adaptive testing process.
  • Clinical help in managing any post-acute withdrawal symptoms that may emerge.

A significant number of Elan’s graduates have remained in regular, active contact by attending most or all alumni events and visiting the Facebook group. Many more are engaged to a lesser degree. To us, the important thing is to foster the same community spirit they experienced in recovery.

The Elan Guarantee is All About Alumni

The Elan Guarantee

Relapse in the first six months after graduation, and you can come back for a two-week Recovery Reboot … for free.

We extend this guarantee to first-time clients who successfully complete their program and continue to follow aftercare and continuing care recommendations.

A Recovery Reboot is just that: It’s a time to revisit relapse prevention skills, to explore what made you falter, and to rebuild your courage and confidence. We hope you’ll never need The Elan Guarantee, but it’s important to us that our alumni can turn to us for help, even months after they graduate.

Relapse is Not Inevitable

We don’t think you should buy into that myth either. At Elan Recovery + Wellness, you will learn the skills, healthy practices, and tools you need to live a clean and sober life. We’ll talk a lot about:

  • Relapse prevention
  • Triggers, and how to avoid them
  • The role of good nutrition
  • The role of proper sleep
  • The role of exercise
  • The importance of AA/NA meetings
  • Learning to have fun without drugs
  • How to steer clear of toxic people

That’s why our aftercare and continuing care recommendations are so important. Often we can head a relapse off before it happens. Our adaptive testing assessment lets us know if you’re faltering, and we can come alongside you to counsel, guide, and support your efforts to get back on track.

Please contact us today to learn more about The Elan Guarantee, or about our efforts to support an engaged, sober alumni community.
