The Ridgeview Recovering
Professionals Aftercare Program serves as a monitoring and
advocacy component to our treatment program.
aftercare program at Ridgeview Institute is an integral part
of my recovery and provides me with the opportunity to
relate to other professionals in a manner I could not
receive anywhere else. For me, the experience of relating
to, and connecting with other professionals is vital to my
long term sobriety and is very important component of my
mental well being.
I participate in an aftercare group with a variety of
professionals which provides me with a safe and trustworthy
setting to discuss intimate issues. I also participate in
the Lawyer's Group which in my experience is a "no
nonsense", honest, caring, group of recovering attorneys who
continually utilize "care-frontation" to point out denial,
rationalization and intellectualization- which seems to be
stronger with professionals. The group also helps its
members with work and personal issues and pull from each
other's extensive professional and personal experiences to
support each other
I often talk on the phone with members from both groups who
provide continual support and encouragement. I am more than
grateful and proud to have these people in my life.
