Home Our Alumni

When a client graduates from our program, they become a forever part of our decades-old Bridge family. We offer many services for our Alumni to keep them engaged in their recovery, community, and connection with each other.  We refer to these as aftercare services.

Who is an alumni of The Bridge to Recovery?

We define a program alumnus as anyone who has attended any of our programs for any length of time.  This can include:

  • Our Core Residential Program
  • Our Santa Barbara, California program that operated from 2011 until 2013
  • Our Accelerated Program for Behavioral Health Professionals (known as our “AP Program” or our “Professionals’ Program”
  • Any Virtual Programming (including that which took place during the COVID shutdown)
  • Any Intensive Workshop held at The Bridge or sponsored by The Bridge, such as:
    • Family & Couple Workshops
    • Grief Workshops
    • “Parts” Workshops
    • Inner Child Workshops

And more.

Alumni Ambassadors

The most common reply we get from our Alumni after attending our program is:

“I found a renewed happiness in life.”

“I experienced emotional recovery.”

“I feel free from my past.”

Because of the success much of our Alumni experience, they often become our best program ambassadors.  This occurs in an number of ways.

Sharing Saves Lives

A large amount of the referrals we receive for our program come from our Alumni who have shared their positive experience and want others to experience the same.  

Being of Service

Alumni donate their time to service projects as way to give back for their own experience and recovery journey.

Financial Gifts of Support

Some Alumni choose to share their gratitude by supporting their favorite causes, including The Bridge to Recovery.  Many gifts from our alumni support our Life Saver Program, allowing others to attend the program who otherwise could not afford to do so.

Connection is Caring

Many of our Alumni keep in close contact with our Alumni Services Department and continue to be a resource for incoming, new, or graduating clients who would like to be connected with other Alumni.  This has included:

  • Phone calls with potential new clients.
  • Connecting with a client prior to graduation to discuss their fears and anxieties. 
  • Meeting with a new program graduate when they return to a specific geographic area.

Full Continuum of Care

The Bridge to Recovery is proudly one of the early participants in the membership organization Treatment Professionals in Alumni Services, which serves to educate, inform, and grow the importance of alumni services being part of a full continuum of care for healthy recovery.  In addition, because we believe so highly in this organization, we have sponsored multiple events, presentations, and collaboratives.

Recovery is Journey

We cannot support our mission of helping others heal from their trauma if we simply were to believe that a client’s experience with our program ends at graduation.  Healing is a journey, and never an end destination.

This is what it means to include alumni in a full continuum of care process.  All of them equally as important as the next for supporting a healthy healing journey.
