The alumni program at Blueprints for Recovery is a vital part of the goals
we have for our clients. The program provides support, community and guidance
for our graduated alumni clients. The program helps individuals stay connected
to a support system after they have transitioned back into normal, everyday life.
Alumni clients have the opportunity to meet with our team on a regular
basis. They are also contacted on a weekly basis for a brief check-in
on their continuing progress, and to address any problems they may be
having. Our alumni clients have the opportunity for support with finances,
employment, housing, school and other life skills.
After our clients have completed the Blueprints for Recovery program, they
are offered the opportunity to attend any and all alumni events. Alumni
clients are also invited to any therapeutic groups and
outdoor adventure therapy trips at Blueprints. We have experienced great success with the individuals
who participate in this group, all of whom have a better chance of success
due to the community and supportive environment offered to them.
Staying connected to a support system is vital for people to continue with
their sobriety. Blueprints offers two meetings a week for our alumni clients
to stay connected. These meetings consist of a brief group check-in and
then a fun activity for everyone to participate in. The alumni community
also gives our clients the opportunity to meet new sober people in their
age group to build friendships.
The alumni program also goes on a monthly trip that allows our alumni clients
the opportunity to have fun. Together, we’ve gone canyoneering,
stayed on overnight trips, and completed obstacle course races. These
trips give our alumni clients the opportunity to have fun in sobriety
and help establish stronger bonds and friendships with positive people.
Having fun in sobriety is crucial to the long-term success for young men.
We offer an array of different adventures, so our alumni can see what
they are interested in and figure out how to have fun in life without
drugs and alcohol.
Education is a very important aspect for our young men’s futures.
The alumni program also gives people the opportunity to work with our
staff to sign up for school. Signing up for college can be a difficult
task without guidance. The alumni coordinator helps individual set up
appointments to meet with an advisor, register for classes, and sign up
for different types of financial aid. We would like to see our alumni
clients be able to pursue their dreams and have successful lives.
