Alumni Program Components

Support Groups

Our Alumni Relations Team facilitates discharge interviews for Magnolia Creek clients as well as various support groups for clients, alumni, and their families to help them connect with and commit to the program.

Discharge Interviews

During each interview, the Alumni Relations Coordinator introduces the program, answers any questions, and collects membership information.

Discharge Group

Throughout each client’s stay, the discharge group allows clients to check in, share their experiences, find support, and receive education on the program.

Alumni Support Group

Within this weekly group, alumni can check in, share their experiences, and find support.

Family Support Group

Within this weekly group, families can check in, share their experiences, and find support.

Post-Discharge Outreach

We know that consistent contact cultivates relationships. After leaving Magnolia Creek, each alumni receives an initial check-in, as well as ongoing scheduled check-ins. During these check-ins, recovery challenges and the needed resources are identified and addressed so our alumni and their families feel supported.

The Group Me App and Private Facebook Page

The app and private page allow alumni and their families to instantly connect with other program members. Members can post, build friendships, access support groups, track events and milestones, and more. The Alumni Relations Coordinator administers groups and provides support as well as holds all members accountable to each group’s rules.

Volunteer Committee

Our alumni program is run, governed, and supported by our volunteer committee, which works in conjunction with our Alumni Relations Coordinator. The only requirements for committee membership include attending the once-a-month meetings and participating in most alumni community events.

Events

We believe in connection through group activities! Recovery is about being a part of life and experiencing new events. The volunteer committee votes on various quarterly events, including reunions, beach trips, bowling, and more.
