Our Thrive Recovery Community

Upon completion of treatment, one of the most important things you can do to be successful in long-term recovery is to stay connected with one another by becoming an active member in our Thrive Recovery Community.

At EHN Canada, we believe that every individual who completes one of our programs deserves the right to thrive, to be happy, and healthy.  So whether you are an alumni from one of our residential facilities, attended one of our family programs or completed an outpatient program, we want to develop a relationship with you FOR LIFE so no one ever feels alone.  We are committed to your sobriety, not only during your treatment but once you have returned home.

We want you to build upon the connections you made  in treatment and to give everyone an opportunity to become part of our alumni community  across the country.  Recovery from addiction gives us all a chance to Thrive and live our life to it’s fullest potential.

What Is An Alumni Program?

Our alumni program is part of an array of continuing care services that are all designed to help you stay safe, sober and connected as you live a life in Recovery. As part of the EHN Canada family, you will receive ongoing support and access to a variety of resources including aftercare groups, continued check ins, invitations to community events, both in person and online, and peer support from other like-minded individuals who share similar goals, experiences and hope.

Together We Can Make A Difference

“It’s a magical thing when you get alumni together and they get a little sparkle in their eye when they talk about their shared experiences and what the facility, peers and staff meant to them”, says Bonnie Bartlett, National Director of Alumni Services.  “The gift of recovery truly is a beautiful thing.”

If you would like to help someone receive the gift of recovery and give back to others you can donate to the New Start Foundation where you can be part of changing someone’s life!
