The Alumni Program’s mission is to extend the AspenRidge Recovery program beyond treatment by hosting events and providing addiction recovery resources to strengthen connections essential to long-term recovery.
The Alumni Program keeps you engaged with a social support network of peers. The structure and support provided helps sustain emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing following drug and alcohol treatment.
AspenRidge CONNECT App
We have an app where you can post your recovery milestones, ask questions, connect with other alumni, and much more!
Recovery is hard work, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! We host dinners, BBQs, talent shows, trivia nights, arts and crafts, as well as cooking workshops.
Weekly Alumni Panel
You’ll also be invited to share your experience with future alumni and provide advice about what to expect after treatment and how to stay active in recovery.
Outcome Studies and Suggestions
We count on our alumni to provide feedback around their experiences with AspenRidge programming and suggestions around possible improvements. We ask our alumni to participate in continued outcome studies to accurately gather data around programming’s efficacy. Thanks to our alumni, we can continually improve our practices.
Monthly Outdoor Activities
Integrating healthy activities promotes recovery and replaces old unhealthy behaviors. Our Alumni have the option to participate in hikes, kayaking trips, campouts, and ski and snowboarding adventures.
In addition to our monthly outdoor events, we also host basketball, volleyball, and kickball events with other recovery centers in Colorado. These events are not only fun, but you’ll meet new people who’ve overcome their struggle with addiction.
We accept most major insurance and have affordable cash pay options

Sober Pals Service Project
One-on-one mentoring those in early recovery
Volunteer Partnership: alumni volunteer with local nonprofits for the opportunity to give back to the community
Any holiday can present challenges to people in recovery. At AspenRidge, we host potluck dinners and provide access to our team of professionals, so our alumni never feel alone on any holiday.
Why We Do It
AspenRidge Alumni give back to the greater community and find a sense of purpose by helping those just starting their recovery journey.
Our Alumni program is a key part of the recovery process. Our goal is to help each individual in early recovery learn how to live a healthy, productive life. We provide support, camaraderie, and sober fun with like-minded people because community is essential to recovery. Belonging to a community of people in recovery makes it easier to maintain your sobriety. Statistics show that alumni program after addiction treatment significantly increases the chances of holding onto sobriety. Volunteering, learning, and socializing with fellow alumni and current clients is a crucial part of life after treatment.
“I went to AspenRidge and could not be happier with my experience there. The counselors and the staff are wonderful. The program provided all the tools I needed to stay sober. The people who work at Aspen Ridge truly care about their clients. Even after graduating, AspenRidge still helps me to maintain sobriety. They have an alumnus meeting every week, as well as get-togethers. It’s hard for me to write a review for AspenRidge, as it is not possible to put into words how this program has touched my heart and saved my life.” – AspenRidge Alumni
