Staying connected is invaluable to continued recovery

Staying Connected After TreatMent Makes All the Difference

Treatment is just the beginning. Recovery is a lifelong journey, and we’ve seen firsthand how staying connected to those who’ve been there can make all the difference. That’s why our Meadows Behavioral Healthcare Alumni Association, MBH Onward, exists — to provide alumni of all MBH programs with ongoing resources and community to empower them to continue the work they began during treatment.

MBH Onward Recovery Coaching

This scalable program was designed with the flexibility to meet a wide variety of clients’ individual needs. Weekly work is done, progress is tracked, and individuals get daily check-in correspondence and weekly face-to-face meetings with their Onward Recovery Coach (via Teams or in person).

Research shows that the longer someone is engaged, the better their chance of long-term, successful recovery. We know that everyone’s needs are different. That’s why we offer a wide range of resources, programming, and opportunities to stay connected. So why not join us as we celebrate the shared experience of recovery?

The MBH Onward App

Our app is just for alumni of our programs, putting community, connection, and resources at your fingertips 24-7. MBH Onward includes inspiration, practical tips, interactive prompts that encourage engagement and accountability, a community who “gets it” to support you when you’re struggling, and access to original MBH articles, podcasts, and more. Available on both iOS and Android devices.

A dedicted alumni staff

We have a team that is here to actively support your recovery long after you leave our programs. New graduates can expect outreach calls on their first day, week, and month out of treatment, followed by a 90-day check-in. We’re here for you in between as well, never more than a phone call away. We also plan special events, weekly support groups and develop app content to keep you connected and engaged.


Alumni Newsletters

Our monthly online newsletters highlight various opportunities each month while offering encouragement to all alumni. There is also information about Meadows-trained therapists in your area, a mid-month connection affirmation email, details about upcoming Facebook Live events, and other recommendations. Oh, and rest assured that we’ll never share or sell your email address.

Daily Virtual Groups

Announced through weekly email reminders, we offer opportunities to gather online with other alumni seven days a week. In addition to our popular Recovery Enhancement Groups, we’re expanding to include specialty topics, interactive recovery sessions, and meetings that follow a 12-Step format. As with other Alumni Association offerings, these groups are free to anyone who has completed an MBH program. [NOTE: As COVID restrictions are lifted, we will resume offering in-person options at our Meadows Outpatient Centers in Scottsdale, Dallas, and Silicon Valley.]


Alumni Events

Focused on engagement and inspiration, these events are held at a variety of different locations across the country. Typically, a trusted local resource shares their expertise, delivering a recovery-related presentation followed by a hands-on expressive arts project or other creative activity. These Alumni Events are free of charge with the exception of Alumni Weekend.


Social Media

Our MBH Onward Facebook page is the latest addition, but many Meadows facilities are also active on social media. These options allow alumni to stay informed and find encouragement on Instagram and Facebook, so look for us online.

Onward Allies

This initiative was created to provide opportunities for alumni to connect and share their experience, strength, and hope with other MBH alums in your area. As an Onward Ally contact, you will help us reiterate The Meadows message and offer a continuum of support. If you’re interested in serving other alumni in this way, we require that you have at least six months of recovery.
