Aftercare & Alumni Program
The staff at Oxford understands that residential treatment provides a foundation for recovery, not a cure.
That’s why we pride ourselves on providing a continuum of care to meet an individual wherever they are on their journey to recovery.
When Your Time at Oxford Comes to an End
Throughout the program, you’ll have access to discharge and aftercare planners, who will help you set up a functional support network. This could be at one of the Oxford outpatient or sober living programs, or it could be at a local program, or even just a local 12-step meeting. Again, it all depends on the progress you’ve made through treatment and what you feel you need upon leaving treatment.
You will also become part of Oxford’s national alumni network, giving you connections to individuals who are in recovery themselves. Oxford treatment staff will also give you various support materials and a contact list to keep in touch with Oxford’s alumni staff.
Keeping Your Recovery Network
Community is one of the most important aspects of recovery. One of the most common ways to maintain connection to the recovery community is by attending regular 12-step meetings. These groups (AA, NA) are popular and successful for a reason: they connect people through shared experiences and a shared goal of living a better life, free of addiction.
Maintaining relationships with other alumni who are in recovery can also help you keep ties to a healthy community and keep you focused on your goals. We recognize this at Oxford, so we dedicate time and resources to making sure you have a community to return to after treatment.
Our Alumni Program
Our Alumni program will connect you with our national network of alumni. Additionally, you’ll be invited to attend monthly Alumni events at Resolutions Oxford, the nearby sober living home. At the main Oxford residential facility, there are usually four main events, one for each quarter. Dates and events tend to vary, but alumni can reach out to Oxford’s alumni coordinators for more details.
Oxford Anniversary Weekends
Once a year, Oxford Treatment Center invites alumni and their families back to the Etta campus for an annual reunion. With speakers, various activities, live music, and a dinner, you’ll have the option to reunite with old friends and clinicians on the campus.
