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 family – 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.
