Alumni Services

Going through addiction is painful, and many parts of the recovery process feel challenging as well. Even after completing detoxification and the lower levels of care, staying sober is not always easy. That is why alumni services are so important for people who have completed a rehab program.

Alumni services can provide continued support, resources, and guidance to help individuals stay on their recovery journey. Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights provides alumni services to provide ongoing support and connection to those who have graduated from our treatment programs in Spokane and Mead, Washington.


Alumni Services at Royal Life Centers

Spokane Heights’s alumni services provide access to a supportive, recovery-focused network of individuals who have benefited from our high-quality treatment services. Our alumni coordinators are available to assist you in finding the right resources for maintaining your sobriety and connecting with others in the recovery community. We offer multiple alumni activities, events, and resources to help our clients remain connected with our program and stay focused on their sobriety goals.

Through our alumni services and other community resources, you can practice recovery and maintenance and stay connected with your peers in recovery. On top of this, you can feel confident knowing that your recovery process will continue even after you’ve completed rehab.

Our Alumni Services

Maintaining a strong support network during and after treatment is crucial for achieving lasting abstinence and minimizing the risk of relapse (with relapse rates reduced by 7-25%). Notably, 90% of people who successfully reach two years of sobriety are highly likely to maintain sobriety for ten years.

These follow-ups serve as a vital source of accountability post-treatment, aiding in your commitment to recovery.

Are you aware that we have an exclusive Facebook group for Royal Life Centers alumni? It serves as a platform for you to stay connected with your fellow alumni, just like an online support group, accessible anytime, anywhere.

We also have an engaging Instagram page where we frequently share recovery resources, uplifting messages, and captivating images from our alumni events. Follow us to stay inspired and connected!

Our alumni community hosts recovery events throughout the year, extending invitations to our graduates and their loved ones. These recovery events often incorporate national and international observances of addiction and recovery. We gather together on these days to raise awareness of substance abuse and recovery, remember those we’ve lost to overdose, and celebrate living a life free of drugs and alcohol.

Over the years, Royal has held recovery events to honor the following:

We organize frequent recovery events and provide opportunities for our alumni community to connect with each other based on their individual preferences. If you’re unsure where to begin, we have compiled an exciting list of sober activities for you to consider. Take the initiative and arrange a meet-up with like-minded peers to enjoy activities such as mini golf, movie nights, laser tag, sports games, and ice skating. Let the fun and connection begin!

Support groups don’t have to come to an end once your service plan is completed. In fact, staying connected with your sober support network is a proven method to maintain your determination.

You have the option to participate in 12-step meetings or alternative gatherings, as well as Royal alumni meetings, to ensure ongoing support in your journey towards sobriety. By staying connected with individuals who truly understand you and your path, it becomes easier to stay accountable and motivated, regardless of the ups and downs.

Our esteemed alumni possess inspiring stories that have the power to motivate both peers and guests on their journey toward a life of sobriety. This is why we organize monthly speaking events, creating a platform for graduates and guests to connect over good food and greater connections.

If you are open to sharing your experiences at our alumni events, particularly our esteemed monthly alumni speaker event, we would be thrilled to hear from you! Please don’t hesitate to contact your dedicated alumni coordinator for any inquiries regarding speaking opportunities.

Within the community, there is often a need for additional recovery resources. Our alumni services are designed to provide you with the necessary support to stay on your recovery journey. Through our alumni program, we offer various ways to stay connected, including social events, educational opportunities, and financial assistance.

Upon request, we offer a range of resources including 12-step meetings, sober living options, and other community support. Together, let us embark on a transformative journey towards lasting sobriety, working hand in hand towards success.
