A Way to Help: Write a Letter, Adopt an Alum

letterFor people getting ready to leave CFR, it can mean a lot to get support from someone with time in recovery. If you’re an alum who thinks that sharing your story could help someone else, you can reach out by writing a letter that introduces yourself and offers to be of service. The counselors keep it on file and share it with patients they believe might connect with you and your experience.

Russ says he found his sponsor this way. And he has returned the favor by sharing his story in a letter. Russ’ letter offers an example of how you can craft one of these Adopt Alumni Letters, but pretty much any way you want to craft one is welcome. Just drop it off at the CFR office.

Dear Patient / Alum,
