Alumni Association and Aftercare
An essential part of any substance abuse treatment is the follow-up plan that is created for when that treatment is completed. Pathways Florida offers several options to assist with ongoing recovery efforts. Both of these options are available at no additional cost to all Pathways Florida clients.
Pathways Florida offers a weekly Aftercare Group to all Pathways Florida clients. This group is led by a licensed counselor and is comprised of all Pathways Florida Alumni. There is no cost for this group and Alumni may attend this group as often and for as long as they wish. Issues addressed in this group are based on the needs of the attending Alumni. The Aftercare Group is regularly attended by Alumni who have been clean and sober after graduating from Pathways Florida more than 15 years ago. In addition to providing a weekly group counseling option, this group also provides recovery support and connections with others in recovery.
The Pathways Florida Alumni Association was created several years ago with the goal of providing additional recovery support and a supportive way to become involved in social activities. The Alumni Association is involved in a number of activities, including a softball team, community service projects, and regular social outings such as bowling or attending local sporting events. This group provides clients a way to become involved with social activities with other individuals in recovery.
