Recovery is a gift that grows and expands when shared with others. Many alumni have expressed interest in beginning local Alumni Support Groups, and Sierra Tucson is committed to helping you do this.
The only membership requirement to join an alumni group is that you must have attended Sierra Tucson. This includes spouses or family members who have attended the Family Program, or an individual who has attended a Quality of Life Workshop (sorry, no children allowed).
These alumni-led Support Groups are a great way for alumni to give and receive support. They are not counseling sessions or 12-Step groups, but a time to share in a safe, open, and honest environment on a regular basis.
Below is a list of local Alumni Support Groups that are already meeting. If you are interested in starting an Alumni Support Group in your area, please e-mail the Alumni Coordinator.
