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 the 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.
