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.
We define a program alumnus as anyone who has attended any of our programs for any length of time. This can include:
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.
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.
Alumni donate their time to service projects as way to give back for their own experience and recovery journey.
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.
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:
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.
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.

“ Honestly the Bridge taught me something I already knew but had to remember. I am so damn special, valid, and important. Everyone in my life saw it, but me. The Bridge just showed me how to look in the mirror to see for myself. ”
