How To Stay In Touch With Your Harbor Village Alumni Family

As part of Harbor Village Alumni Group, you never have to feel alone in sobriety. We’re right there with you.

Remember how you felt when you first came to Harbor Village? Maybe you were unsure and didn’t quite know what to expect. Maybe you were frustrated that you even had to be in rehab. Maybe you were relieved to finally get the help you needed. Or maybe, like most of us, you felt a little bit of all of the above.

We’re so proud of you — and all that you’ve accomplished in your time at Harbor Village. And the best is yet to come! Recovery doesn’t stop when you leave our facility … or earn your six-month chip … or celebrate 20 years sober. It’s a journey of a lifetime. And with support from our alumni family, you always have friends by your side on that journey.

HOW CAN HARBOR VILLAGE ALUMNI HELP ME IN RECOVERY?

Staying connected with a strong network of sober friends is one of the healthiest things you can do in recovery. You’ll find a built-in network of people who understand exactly what you’ve been through. And here’s a little secret: People in recovery like to have fun. A lot of fun, in fact. Harbor Village alumni are diverse, interesting, adventurous — and are great listeners. There are so many activities and options, including:

Harbor Village Alumni Support Program

Whether you graduated two years ago, or two hours ago, you’re part of the family. And we can’t wait to see you!

HOW CAN I HELP OTHERS AS PART OF HARBOR VILLAGE ALUMNI?

Great question. One of the most important parts of recovery is service to others — and getting involved with our alumni group will give you the chance to share your journey and experience with others, especially those in early recovery. We also welcome you to visit with our current clients and provide mentorship, so they can learn what’s working for you. Just give us a call, and we’ll find a good time for you to visit us.

Another great option is to speak with prospective clients — or their loved ones. It’s an opportunity to let them know what they can expect from their time at Harbor Village, and reassure them that sobriety isn’t the end of the road; it’s a whole new beginning. If you’d like to be an alumni ambassador for Harbor Villager, please let us know. We’d love to have your help!
