GET INVOLVED WITH YOUR RCA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
One of the best ways you can sustain and support long-term recovery is to stay involved in the RCA Alumni Association. From regional recovery alumni meetings and chapter planning meetings to speaking with current patients and attending regional Alumni Association events, there are many opportunities to help others who want to maintain long-term recovery. Supporting others in recovery is a great way to promote your own recovery efforts. Assisting others keeps you grounded and creates opportunities to reconnect with like-minded individuals and groups.
