Days of Ascent

Days of Ascent, an offer of life-time treatment for active alumni of Futures began in October, 2015 and is held several times a year. Alumni return to campus and

Staff and alumni alike excitedly look forward to six Days of Ascent offerings each year.

Coining In

Our first Coining In ceremony was introduced in January, 2015.  The ceremony, now a regular, weekly practice has forever changed the continued recovery of our clients
...Read More and future alumni. The oft uncertain and overwhelming first few days of residential treatment are met at Futures with a promise, “We are here for you, today, tomorrow, and for the duration of your continued recovery.”

The weekly ceremony continues to serve as a stark contrast to the traditional graduation or coining out ceremonies held at most treatment centers.  At Futures, we believe that while recovery may begin here, it certainly does not end here. In support of this philosophy, our Coining In ceremony serves as a warm introduction to recovery and the Futures family - during which the client receives a unique and specialized coin, just for him or her, to keep forever throughout his or her treatment journey.

Sober Activities

Each month, our alumni group meets up for various sober fun activities to help support one another and have fun. From paddle boarding and kayaking to horseback riding
...Read More and trips to the movies and dinner, an instant sense of community is created through the familiarity of the group and meeting new Alumni each month. A natural support system is created for each member through these outings and the experiences shared continue to drive each of our alumni towards a successful path of recovery.
