Leaving a place like the Sanctuary and going back to the real world can be very challenging for someone in early recovery. At the Sanctuary we offer an alumni support group which meets one evening each week. This provides an opportunity for our alumni to remain connected to one another and to the Sanctuary. Two weeks prior to each client’s departure they begin attending the alumni meetings to gain the support of other men and women who have successfully made the transition back to living in the world at large.
