An Alumni Fellowship Community for Lifelong Support
A Lifetime of Support for Alumni in Recovery
Fellowship and support are the backbone of every aspect of our treatments at Roots Recovery. We’re incredibly proud of the fellowship we’ve built between our clients, recovery staff, and alumni — and these relationships are anything but superficial. Recovery is a lifelong journey, and your family at Roots Recovery will be there to support you every step of the way.
Fellowship in Milwaukee
Through participating in group therapy, 12-Step programming with the greater community, and residing in our Sober Living and Alumni Homes, our clients build support networks with peers who understand what it’s like to battle addiction. Healing with others who are experiencing similar difficulties and challenges forms a kind of fellowship and understanding that simply can’t be replicated anywhere else.
Aftercare & Alumni Homes
Clients living in our Alumni Homes are responsible for paying their own rent, buying their own groceries, and doing the same things they would do for themselves if they lived on their own, but enjoy the continued benefits of living with a house manager and peers focused on recovery. They’re encouraged to establish new healthy routines and gain independence, financially and emotionally, with the option to continue counseling and select other services.
Being of Service to Others in Recovery
Alumni can serve as resources for new admissions to Roots Recovery, acting as a guide, inspiration, and mentor. Many of our alumni even take on a sponsorship role for 12-Step programs, which allows those in rehab to get a positive glimpse of a successful life in addiction recovery. We’ve also set up our Sober Living and Alumni Homes to be led by house managers who are Roots Recovery graduates. These former clients understand the struggles that new residents are facing, and they’re eager to share their knowledge and experience to help them through the challenges of recovery, especially in the difficult early days.
Because recovery is more successful when an individual continues to stay active in their recovery and is surrounded by supportive peers, we invite alumni to even remain active in certain rehab programming like group therapy and select outings.
Encouraging Fellowship &
Friendship at Roots Recovery
Our alumni will often attend the recreational events that we host for our clients, such as watch parties, Brewers’ games, motivational speakers, trampoline park outings, and more. This is a great opportunity for clients to strengthen the fellowship they’ve formed during treatment and develop new friendships. Some of our alumni even choose to live with one another after they’ve completed our rehab programming, to support one another and keep each other on track.
