Recovery For Life
Our commitment to your Recovery For Life means we stay connected with you after you complete your residential treatment. Aurora Recovery Centre is a compassionate, understanding recovery community that will support you from the time you walk through our doors and throughout your lifetime of recovery with our continuum of care. Providing an array of supports and personalized services ensures your needs are met.
Continuing Care Group
After completion of the acute care, residential portion of your program, you’ll transition into weekly alumni group meetings where you’ll find connection and accountability as you build your recovery foundation.
Open Door Policy
We encourage you to drop by and visit, connect with Aurora staff, and share with other Aurora members and alumni. Our doors are always open to you. Whether you’re feeling great or struggling we’d love to see you and connect you with your recovery roots.
We’re also certified to offer confidential TeleHealth video-conferencing to provide support and address issues you may be facing as you continue to heal your addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Reconnect with your recovery by attending our Renewal Program. Whether you’re struggling or want to take your recovery to another level we’ve got you covered. This program provides a place to reconnect, renew and refocus in a supportive and therapeutic environment.
A great way to enhance your recovery is to have or become an Alumni Peer Support person.
When leaving treatment an Alumni Peer Support person becomes the bridge between immersion in treatment and actively living in recovery. They can be an ally and resource who has already walked in your shoes.
Becoming an Alumni Peer Support person gives you the opportunity to be of service and use your experience to help someone else. Mentoring someone as they transition out of treatment is a wonderful way to strengthen your own recovery.
Becoming engaged in a healthy community is one of the goals of substance use disorder treatment. As a member of Aurora’s Alumni, you’ll have the opportunity to become involved in various community outreach programs and service activities.
12 Step Community
Life after treatment means engaging in behavioural and lifestyle changes that will sustain your recovery for life. Much like any chronic condition (hypertension, diabetes, coronary issues, etc) when you have the acute phase of treatment you’re prescribed a specific treatment plan that is monitored throughout your stay, ensuring you’re responding favorably. When you leave acute care you’re provided with an ongoing recovery management plan with regular follow up, prescribed treatment plan, lifestyle changes, and regular involvement with some form of mutual aid support group. This is where a peer support group plays a pivotal role. The accountability and support provided by working a 12 Step program ensures that you will continue to grow and thrive.
Alternative Recovery Community
12 Step-based recovery isn’t for everyone and we recognize that there are many paths to recovery. A critical component of your continuing care is connection, accountability and support. The evidence supports positive long term outcomes when you remain engaged in ongoing support and we have a variety of alternatives to offer you.
Alumni Community on Social Media
We invite you to join our alumni only private Facebook page. You’ll be able to stay connected and current on upcoming events, and get enhanced communication and support from staff and other alumni.
