the trauma story.
the addiction and mental health story.
the recovery story.

The Refuge offers an extensive alumni program for clients, who are lovingly called “Refugees.” Any person who receives care on our campus is part of our tribe.

We firmly believe that this tribe of people, the ones who clients were in treatment with, the ones who came before them, and the ones who will come after them, are an important part of keeping our alumni sober and grounded.

In an effort to keep all of our alumni connected, The Refuge operates a Secret Facebook Group where clients can connect with each other, share stories of hope and motivation, ask for support and learn about sober events in their area. If you are a Refugee that is not connected to this Facebook group and you would like to be please call the facility at (352) 288-3333 and ask for Alumni Services. They will be able to help you get connected and would love to hear from you.

Alumni coordinators are also there to connect Refugees with other alumni in their area, as well as reach out throughout their first year after discharging to make sure that our alumni have the resources and support they need in order to be successful.
