We help you start your journey into recovery from addiction. A key component for long-term sobriety is engagement in a strong recovery community. Since 2006, CeDAR Alumni have been helping one another throughout life after treatment. Our CeDAR Alumni Services program not only provides sober activities and events, but it also keeps people connected to recovery at CeDAR and with each other.
We’ve been told many times that CeDAR Alumni found some of their best recovery capital from other CeDAR Alumni. You can build a new life in recovery with people who are doing the same.

Join us for a weekly CeDAR Alumni meeting held every Thursday at 7pm. Each week there is a new Alumni chairperson who chooses the recovery topic for discussion. This meeting is exclusively for CeDAR Alumni and supportive family members.
Every second Thursday of the month, CeDAR Alumni Services hosts an After-Meeting Social. We get together following the CeDAR Alumni Meeting for ice cream, coffee or some other tasty treat at a local eatery. This is a great way to get to know other CeDAR Alumni outside the context of a meeting.
On the third Thursday, there is an After Hours meeting that follows the CeDAR Alumni Meeting. Join us for this monthly business meeting to discuss all things CeDAR Alumni. This is a great platform to get a service position for the meeting or to offer feedback and suggestions.
The last Thursday of the month is Milestone Night! During this meeting, our alumni community comes together to celebrate milestones and talk about what’s going well in recovery. Milestones can range from getting a new job, celebrating a sobriety birthday to successfully using a coping skill. Family and staff are welcome. Light refreshments are served.
CeDAR Alumni Services organizes Sober Social Events to encourage connection, community, and fun. Sober social events can include athletics, outdoor recreation, sporting games, art & crafts, picnics and any other activity that allows us to participate as a group. We often partner with recovery organizations such as Sober AF and The Phoenix.
Service in Sobriety offers involvement both within CeDAR and the broader recovery community. In-house engagements include participation on the spirituality panel or early recovery panel. CeDAR also has formal volunteer positions for CeDAR Alumni. Community engagements include participation in organized recovery events and volunteering at local organizations.
CeDAR will host Personal Development Events for Alumni to encourage learning and growth in the primary dimensions of wellness. These events can include workshops, retreats, and lectures focused on personal growth and wellness. We collaborate with vetted professionals within the recovery community who have the ability and credentials to lead such events.
This is a great opportunity to share your interests and goals over a cup of coffee with the CeDAR Alumni Coordinator. Talk one-on-one about your ideas for recovery and engagement with Alumni Services. If you haven’t already met the CeDAR Alumni Coordinator for coffee, reach out to Meghan White to schedule a session. We’ll build our recovery community through individual connections.
Tuesdays at 10am and Wednesdays at 3pm
In this “non-meeting” join a small group of other CeDAR Alumni to discuss anything you’d like to bring up — recovery challenges and success, adapting to the virtual platform, crowdsource ideas and support. Feel free to reach out with questions or to schedule.. Contact Meghan.White@uchealth.org with any questions.
CeDAR Alumni Services has a Private Facebook Group exclusively for CeDAR Alumni. The Facebook group offers a content-rich platform for you to stay current on CeDAR news and activities, and recovery-related events in the broader community. You are welcome to post recovery-related news to the feed. E-mail Meghan White to join the group.
If you are not on Facebook, we have created a web page with a list of CeDAR Alumni events for each month. Click here and bookmark the CeDAR Alumni Activities page in your browser.
