Our promise: when you complete a residential program at The Ridge, you’ll never be alone in recovery again.

Support Means Success

Upon graduation from The Ridge, you automatically become a member of our extended alumni community – a supportive network of graduates who understand what life is like before, during, and after treatment. Our alumni community is designed to support our clients as they lead a full life in sobriety.

“If the opposite of Addiction is Connection, this is where you are able to connect with others
who have been through the same program you have and to be able to share with like-minded

This is something Mary Jo tells every client and family she meets. In coordinating virtually all
aspects of our alumni programming, Mary Jo strives to ensure that all clients have the tools they
need to maintain long-term sobriety and that all families are given the opportunity to receive
their own support and tools to help support their loved one for a lifetime of recovery.
Join Mary Jo throughout the week and year for several alumni and family events:

  • Wednesdays at Noon: A Weekly Recovery Meeting (Alumni Only – via Zoom)
