A common misconception about mental health and addiction treatment is that it is less a process and more of a singular event. In reality, it is more a process than anything, and this means that your treatment or recovery never “ends” in the traditional sense of that word. There is no question that making the first call and beginning your treatment is an incredibly important step. But treatment and recovery don’t stop there. And this is why, at the Atlanta Center for Mental Health, we take such pride in our alumni program.
One of the commitments we make to every patient who walks through our door involves the aftercare that they will receive once they have left our residential facility. Just as your journey towards positive mental health and recovery doesn’t stop when you leave our care, neither does our part in helping you get there. For this reason, we have established an extensive alumni program in GA and beyond. Our program allows everyone interested in continuing care to stay in touch — with us and with each other.
Building a Support Network, One Step at a Time
A strong support network is a crucial part of your road to mental wellness and recovery. And as a part of our alumni program, you will have a group of people at your disposal who have had similar experiences to yours. Additionally, as a part of that network yourself, people will be able to reach out to you when they are in need as well. Good mental health is always a two-way street. And at the Atlanta Center, we consistently hear from patients who express their thanks, not just for the care that they received during their time at the Center, but also for the chance to make a difference in the lives of others who are struggling with mental health or addiction. It is a well-known fact that helping others can just as powerful a tool as receiving help is. And our alumni program is founded on that principle.
