Once you leave treatment, your recovery journey continues with access to services and activities designed for individuals and their families that have been through AM Healthcare programs.
We offer and welcome the involvement of all alumni and family to attend and participate in our support groups, recovery meetings and various events put on throughout the year. Alumni and family participation is encouraged, and we warmly invite you to experience the joy of recovery with your fellow AM Healthcare family.
To the family and friends of our clients: we haven’t forgotten about you, either! When your loved one is in our program, we put great emphasis on the fact that addiction is a family disease — and that fact remains even after your loved one completes our program.
In addiction, families suffer together. In treatment, families heal together. And after treatment, they continue to recover together. That’s why our alumni program encompasses both clients and their families. If your loved one has attended our addiction treatment program, we strongly urge them to partake in our alumni program, and we strongly urge you to participate in our family alumni program.
Whether you are a mother or father, brother or sister, spouse or even just a close personal friend, all are welcome to join. Whether or not you realize it, you share a bond with all other family members. That bond is your unconditional love for someone afflicted with addiction.
Family and friends who join our alumni program can find the same support and sober fun that our clients enjoy. They lean on one another when times are hard, and they celebrate together when times are good. They attend meetings together, and they share in the growth that comes from each other’s personal experiences.
Staying active in the recovery community will allow you to grow and maintain positive, healthy relationships. AM Healthcare includes individuals who are in recovery or who have already completed our drug rehab center treatment program. Besides family and close friends, it is important to have a strong support system that shares similar experiences and backgrounds. Similarly, it is central to your recovery to stay busy, active, engaged and connected with other people who are on the path of recovery who will hold you accountable and motivate you. AM Healthcare alumni and family services are an extension of your family who are committed to helping you succeed in recovery.
Our mission is to provide lifelong community and support for our clients and families.
We provide services and activities to assist you on your recovery journey:
