Footprints to Recovery – OWL
“Our Whole Life” (OWL) alumni program at Footprints to Recovery offers clients lifelong support, encouragement, and meaningful connections. With a network of sober peers, regular events, and resources that support long-term sobriety, clients always have a lifeline in recovery.
Our alumni team offers peer recovery support days, weeks, and years after clients complete treatment. We encourage our alumni to come back and stay connected by participating in events and meetings. These activities allow our alumni community to bond and celebrate their new found life in recovery. Our alumni program helps prevent relapse and provides alumni and family with the necessary resources to stay on track.

Vogue - Rising Phoenix
Vogue’s alumni group, Rising Phoenix offers a close network of peers in recovery to clients who have gone through treatment at any of our centers. The name stems from the mythology and symbolism of the Phoenix and signifies the empowerment of clients completing the program and transitioning to a new way of life. Our motto is “out of the ashes and into recovery.”
The goal of our alumni group is to create and offer a community of support for life after treatment. Rising Phoenix offers additional support after treatment and gives clients an opportunity to meet others in the recovery community.
Features of our alumni program vary by location, but may include:
- Weekly meetings in person and via Zoom.
- Regular outings and events such as volunteering or socializing.
- Fun activities like bowling or going to the movies.
- Monthly dinners.
- Private, dedicated alumni Facebook page.
Clients in our inpatient programs are invited to attend an alumni group before they leave treatment, giving them an introduction to the program and their peers.
