Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.
– David Ogden Stiers
We’re grateful to be a part of the lives being transformed from pain and addiction to health and happiness and consider our alumni as part of our family. When you are family, it is important to stay connected. The Ranch at Dove Tree is committed to keeping you involved with our family, and we invite you to stay connected with us!
We currently stay connected in a few different ways…
- LUBBOCK ALUMNI MEETING is held at the Foundations/IOP building each Wednesday at 7:00pm. If you are interested in starting an Alumni Group in your area, please contact our Alumni Coordinator today!
- AMARILLO AFTERCARE MEETING is held monthly at 6500 Canyon Drive, Suite 400, at 6pm. Please contact Rscherpereel@yahoo.com for this month’s meeting date.
- RECOVERY THOUGHTS are posted on the Ranch at Dove Tree FaceBook page as well as emailed each Friday. We can all use a bit of inspiration before the weekend starts. This weekly email includes an inspiration quote or excerpt from recovery literature, and a few encouraging words to start your weekend.
- SUMMER PICNIC & WINTER HOLIDAY RECOVERY CELEBRATION are both held annually. Twice per year we invite our alum, and families, to reconnect with staff and peers giving each of us an opportunity to give thanks for the blessings of recovery and offer us a chance to spend time with family and friends.
- ANNUAL ALUMNI REUNION: Thank you for helping make our past Reunions a huge success! We love having the chance to reconnect with so many of you and your families. What a blessing recovery is for all of us!
- WINTER ALUMNI EVENT – We host an Alumni event every winter to celebrate recovery, eat wonderful food, and raise money for scholarships to offset the cost of treatment for those who may not have the resources to get help.
- FACEBOOK is a safe, private, social network where you can share your recovery with your peers from Dove Tree. Through our private FB page, you can connect with friends from treatment and make new friends in recovery!
STAY CONNECTED The Ranch at Dove wants to keep in touch with you. If you are alumni of one of our programs, please take a moment to update your contact information. Information will only be used by the Ranch at Dove Tree Team.
Our Alumni Coordinator is Richard Mechie Scherpereel. He’s here to help in any way possible. Please update send your current contact info, news, and anything else via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
While in treatment, we are already focused on setting you up for a successful discharge. Our CaredFor app will make sure that you are requested to join our network of alumni as soon as you turn on your phone. This will help you stay connected with recovery resources, and alumni, who are choosing to stay close, and in contact, with Dove Tree and each other.
