The Alumni Program at Ascend is an integral part of our aftercare regimen and important for both parents and teens. We host weekly and monthly alumni events to maintain contact with graduates of our residential facilities and ensure they continue their progress towards better mental health. Learn more about some of the events we offer!

Variety for Parents & Teens

While some of our events are therapy-based, others are all about socializing and having fun! From support and process groups for parents to LGBTQ+ discussions and social hangouts for teens, Ascend is always hosting something new. Our group hosts are therapists and specialists who volunteer their time to continue caring for the parents and teens that have become part of the Ascend family!

Private, Protected Groups

Ascend alumni events are always private groups that only allow former clients and parent attendance. We protect the identities and information of anyone who chooses to attend these groups to ensure we’re creating safe spaces that allow everyone to express themselves freely. If you’re a parent or teen who has been through the Ascend program, join our Facebook group for updates and access to these events!
