Advocacy and Service Opportunities
Often, on your wellness journey, it is helpful to you to be able to tell your story or to help others through volunteering. Connecting with your Alumni Retreat Community helps provide opportunities to do this:
– Participate in Alumni Speaker Meetings in person or virtually offering your personal story of hope to the patients who are currently in treatment.
– Participate as a member of a panel focused on a topic about recovery or wellness.
– Share your story publicly, as a way to inspire others and reduce the stigma surrounding Substance use Disorder and Recovery.
– Provide support for or lead a local alumni meeting or event.
