Military veterans and first responders understand the importance of comradery and someone having their back when it matters the most. We believe this kind of support can truly help each individual through the recovery process and that maintaining relationships with fellow alumni can help reduce the occurrence and severity of relapse.
As the Help For Our Heroes clients discharge back into the community, the dedicated Transformations Alumni Services team makes phone calls to every alumni member indefinitely. When speaking with former clients, alumni coordinators work to ensure open lines of communication and determine if clients are maintaining a healthy, sober lifestyle. In many cases, these touch-points prove instrumental in helping people stay sober or return to treatment rather than relapsing.
Creating a community is important to all of our clients, but even more so within our veterans and first responder population. Once a month, we hold a Help For Our Heroes-specific Alumni Night at our clinical building where we invite all of the men and women who have gone through our program back for dinner and fellowship. This, as well as regular alumni meetings and monthly fun activities brings a sense of bonding to the group and encourages a life of sobriety.
We are constantly growing our Help For Our Heroes program and during aftercare, we provide transportation for most of our alumni to our meetings and events. We are proud of the community and connections made through our program and we look forward to continuing to foster those relationships.
Don’t Suffer in Silence
For the men and women who dedicate their lives to helping others, we are here to help you.
Getting to Transformations I realized I’m not alone and these folks right here are in the trenches with me and I do need help and it’s a judge-free zone. I learned that getting help is not a weakness, it’s actually a strength.
– Dave V., Help For Our Heroes Alumnus
There is a lot of life to be lived, that it’s okay to reach out for help, and that’s just what I did. We are all going through the same thing and we can help each other through this.
– Jake H., Help For Our Heroes Alumnus
I didn’t even know what I was doing was wrong. All I know is I was just looking for my next drink. I didn’t have the tools to help myself. When I got to Transformations I was broken, and by the grace of God, this program and the people in it helped me…we helped each other.
– Joey R., Help For Our Heroes Alumnus
Sometimes asking for help can be seen as weak, but it’s really about loving yourself and setting your pride aside. And Transformations helped me do that.
– Tsuji C., Help For Our Heroes Alumna
Transformations saved my life multiple times. I was fortunate enough to receive treatment at TTC through the VA, and I can’t speak highly enough of the Help For Our Heroes program, the staff, and the level of care at this establishment. If it weren’t for the caring and supportive staff, I would not be here.
