Continuing an annual tradition, Oxford Treatment Center alumni and their families are invited to a casual gathering of food, fun and fellowship on Saturday, Sept. 28.
For 2019, Alumni Weekend will be held at the residential campus in Etta, MS, from 1-4 p.m. Alumni and their families will enjoy fellowship, experiential activities and speakers. Oxford Treatment Center Executive Chef Moulay Elabdellaoui and his staff will serve Southern-style cuisine.
“…it’s important for us to host weekends like this not only for our alumni but also for the people who’ve been their support system.”
Alumni Weekend 2019 is designed to welcome alumni and their families back to the Etta campus. The weekend aims to highlight the important role of families in a person’s recovery from addiction, said Brian Whisenant, Director of Community Relations.
“We say often that addiction is a family disease — but recovery involves the whole family, too,” he said. “That’s why it’s important for us to host weekends like this not only for our alumni but also for the people who’ve been their support system.”
Experiential therapists will be on hand to offer experiences in art, music, yoga and equine therapy that those in recovery took part in while in treatment.
“For our alumni, it’s often meaningful to bring their loved ones back to the place where their recovery began,” Whisenant said. “They’ve come this far in their recovery because of the support of their family and friends. Being able to reflect on how far they have come is truly an exercise in gratitude.”
