La Hacienda Alumni and Continuing Care
Hard to believe its 2023 already. (This old one eyed guys getting old! ) Wanted to remind y’all it’s time to start planning that spring trip to the Hill Country. Reunion is always the first full week end in May.
Get those hotel reservations made NOW! If you wait till April to do it, chances are you will be camping with the mosquitos. No really. Hill Country fills up in the spring. Everyone wants to look at the wildflowers. (Bring your cameras for the flowers but leave them in the car when you come to campus. NO cameras.
Last year’s 50th celebration was pretty special. We had a fine turnout. Always amazing to see so many old friends. Got some good speakers lined up for this year and are expecting all of you to come back! Holler at me if you have any questions. Can’t wait!
Treatment is only the beginning of recovery.
Prior to completing therapy at La Hacienda, Continuing Care coordinators help patients plan referrals and services for the next six to twelve months. This helps build a support system to maintain and enhance the sobriety and personal growth achieved during treatment. Part of this support system comes from a strong alumni network La Hacienda has in cities throughout Texas. Former patients participate in weekly meetings and help new graduates transition into recovery in their community.
Our Alumni Support staff follows up with each former patient on a regular basis for the first year and seeks to continue to stay in touch thereafter. Alumni Support also emails a newsletter highlighting upcoming events, speaking engagements, and recovery articles to alumni.
La Hacienda annually hosts a weekend reunion for former patients and their families at the Hunt, Texas, residential center. This enables alumni to reconnect with each other and with staff and make new connections. Information about speakers and lodging for upcoming reunions is announced in the alumni newsletter and posted on our website.
