Futures’ cherished alumni community members give back in more ways than one. Our alumni team conducts long-term outcome research with alumni to improve the performance of our program.
Futures alumni representatives call patients at regular intervals to check on their recovery and offer additional treatment if needed. Some alumni participate in long-term outcome studies. Outcome studies collect data useful in improving the efficacy of care at Futures. Some of the information collected includes impressions of the Futures treatment experience, whether alumni are maintaining sobriety or the frequency and duration of relapses, the nature of their aftercare, and lifestyle attributes like employment and relationship status.
Information volunteered by our alumni members can influence the types of programming we offer, which wellness offerings and services we offer, and many other aspects of our program. Our alumni members are also sources of inspiration and new thinking. We take their feedback seriously and work to enhance the Futures experience continually.
