Sunshine Coast Health Centre, a top-rated drug rehab, alcohol treatment, and PTSD / trauma therapy program based in British Columbia Canada, is proud to announce a successful alumni “road trip” by Jaymie Bryan. Jaymie is SCHC’s original alumni relations manager for the Centre.
“We work hard to support our alumni after they leave the facilities,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “We are so proud of Jaymie’s return to SCHC with a road trip and her outreach to support alumni on their recovery journey from alcohol, drugs, and/or trauma. Plus, it was just plain fun.”
Persons who would like to learn more can read a summary of the trip at https://www.sunshinecoasthealthcentre.ca/2021-alumni-road-trip/. The post has a detailed log of the journey, plus some great photos. It shares how personal connections can be a pivotal part of the recovery journey. Jaymie writes as follows:
“The connections were happening again. The meaningful, soulful, spiritual, and deep conversations that were had with our alumni are indescribable. Alumni were beyond grateful that we had started the in-person piece again. The pandemic hit everyone so hard, and many said, ‘it felt good again to see one another, connect in person, and to feel human again.’ I couldn’t have agreed more. The boatload of laughter we shared, the salutations, the love, the brotherhood, reminded me of why we do this for them. They are worth all the blood, sweat, tears and time we put into them.”
Alumni support is a critical part of the success of the program.
