Relapse Prevention & Continuing Care Beyond Residential Treatment
Each patient will develop relapse prevention tools based on the Gorski Model® to help them maintain sobriety in their recovery process once they leave our facilities. Patients are usually referred on for further care to continue the recovery journey and to address any other issues/concerns identified while in treatment. This can include outpatient addiction treatment, medical care, possibly mental health/behavioral health care, job training, etc.) If a patient resides in the Pierce/Kitsap and/or Gig Harbor area, they can continue their addiction treatment at our outpatient program in Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor Counseling, or we will try to find a program close to the patient’s home.
Olalla Guest Lodge Spirit Mountain Alumni Activities
Our alumni are important to us. We offer ongoing activities and support for our alumni, called Spirit Mountain Alumni. Patients are encouraged to participate in the alumni activities such as posting on our Facebook page, signing up to receive bulletins, emails, and newsletters to keep in contact with Olalla, returning to share your recovery journey at our open AA & NA meetings, and attending our annual Spirit Mountain Alumni Picnic every August. Many patients return to the open birthday meetings to celebrate milestones in their recovery path. Each year, Olalla hosts an Alumni Picnic for current and former patients to celebrate the gifts of recovery and to re-connect with counselors and former patients.
