Recovery is hard enough, don’t go through it alone.
Program alumni aged 18-30 are welcome to participate in our Alumni Network. Being a member of this group will provide you with a community of people that understand you, they are easy to relate to, easy to confide in, and are there to support you at your most vulnerable times.
Your recovery journey doesn’t end when you leave Sandstone Care.
You’ll need to take sobriety one day at a time because it is ongoing. Even if you are doing great, there may be a day where you need that extra support to get you through, and that’s where we come in.
Join the group that will stand by you even when others may not. Get connected with our Alumni.
Our website is full of helpful resources, from reading materials about recovery to information about assistance in your area, as well as helpful staff to confide in. We offer continued client care to let you know that the Sandstone team is here for you far beyond your graduation from our treatment programs.
It can feel scary to no longer be in program and be out on your own in recovery; but you are not alone and you have a dedicated and willing community here to help you, starting with the Sandstone Care Alumni group.
Our goal with the Alumni group at Sandstone is to support you and celebrate your many milestones.
Sandstone Care aims to drive positive lasting change in real people. We understand that you have a life, so we offer a more personal experience than you would find anywhere else.
Our commitment to our clients’ lasting success and recovery helps us continually exceed licensing standards of care throughout the industry.
“I started my own recovery journey as a client at Sandstone. For about eight months, I went through the PHP, IOP, and OP programs fighting my own battle with heroin and cocaine addiction.
Sandstone saved my life and became a huge part of who I wanted to be. Addicted to drugs for nearly nine years, my admittance to Sandstone was where my journey to recovery began.
I struggled immensely throughout the program and the journey was not easy, but I was able to meet a lot of fantastic people that taught me how to live a happy, clean, and sober life on the other side.
I am very passionate about connecting people, supporting others, and building a recovery community! Not only is my experience firsthand when it comes to recovery and sustaining it, but I am also a certified recovery coach in which I am able to help understand, mentor, and guide alumni to the resources that suit them best so they can live up to their potential and best life!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any of the Sandstone Care team if you need anything. You can contact me at [email protected]“
