Alumni & Aftercare Services
2018 Annual FHE Alumni Retreat
You have completed the residential and/or outpatient program and are ready to move on from treatment – what do you do now?
We understand that recovering from a substance abuse disorder is not a process that happens overnight, and that long-term solutions must be in place to prevent relapse. The steps taken right after rehab are crucial for patients merging back into the real world and we believe that an extensive array of care is essential to ensure success for our drug and alcohol treatment patients. That is why we manage the process ourselves, ensuring that every patient’s needs are met during the transition to a lower level of care.
We assist those utilizing our outpatient programs in handling real-world difficulties they may encounter, such as maintaining a sober-living environment, job placement assistance, resume building, and access to our Alumni center and computer lab. We like to give our patients all of the tools they will need in order to maintain success during their recovery, so our alumni center offers a 24/7 support network, allowing for continuous contact to be kept between peers.
Our aftercare programs are flexible and allow every person to get the continued care they need. No matter what work, school, or life responsibilities exist, it is possible to find a way to keep getting treatment and ensure your long-term health and sobriety.
