More than anything else, at alumni events there is fun! Those in recovery are free from the pains and chains of addiction. Now, we celebrate life and recovery in everything we do.
Many of the favorite alumni events involve sober fun. When someone first gets sober, many people feel uncertain about what could possibly be done that’s fun—the answer is an endless list of possibilities.
For example, there was a sober softball team that met weekly from October through April. Sober bowling events, laser tag, hiking, and camping trips also provide regular opportunities for alumni members to meet and bond while enjoying exciting pastimes. The members’ goal is to organize events that keep people engaged and surrounded by fun, supportive and healthy ways to spend time.
Our goal for the future is to expand the networks alumni programs so that it’s able to provide scholarships and funding for those in early recovery who are unable to afford certain requirements. Eventually, we may be able to help with such expenses, such as an alumni’s first-month rent in sober living or treatment fees, should insurance cut out before the program is completed.
