Aftercare and Alumni Support

Recovery is an ongoing process. In drug rehab, patients gain an initial period of abstinence and build a foundation for long-term sobriety that must be built upon after formal treatment ends.

The treatment team at The Camp develops a unique aftercare plan for each patient, which may include outpatient programs or a referral to a sober living environment. Patients are also encouraged to develop a support network by participating in 12-Step meetings in the community and The Camp’s alumni group activities, including ski trips, golf tournaments and weekend retreats.

Experiential Therapies

The Camp Recovery Center offers a variety of outdoor-focused experiential therapies.
