For alumnae - Let us help as you continue your recovery journey

At Our Hope, we know that each woman’s recovery is a lifelong journey.  We are here to help as you embark on your journey with a lifetime of support, both formal and informal.  We encourage all of the women we have served to take full advantage of the services listed below and to know that we are just a phone call or an email away if you’d like to stay in contact with any of the Staff members who grew to care so much about you during your time with us.

12-Step Meetings at the Residence

As you learned during Treatment at Our Hope, our work is grounded in the 12-Step philosophy.  You probably attended meetings in the Carriage House while you were in Treatment and we want to encourage you to continue to attend these meetings as often as you are able.  This is so important, not only to help you on your continuing journey to recovery, but also for the other women in these meetings who can learn so much from you.

  • Weekly Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings are held in the Carriage House every Tuesday from 12:00-1:00 p.m., welcoming all women currently in Treatment at Our Hope, as well as Alumnae like you, and other recovering women in the greater community.
  • Monthly Alcoholics Anonymous Speaker’s Meetings are held on the first Wednesdays of each month in the Carriage House at 7:00 p.m.,  welcoming all women currently in Treatment at Our Hope, as well as  Alumnae, and other recovering women in the greater community.
