Alumni Resources

The road to recovery from addictions, mental illness, and trauma related conditions begins with the type of treatment our clients experience at South Pacific Private. But, as they say: Recovery is a journey not a destination.

It is vital that when the going gets tough after discharge, you have all the resources and supports in place, and easily accessible, to help you stay on track.

Healing from any of these conditions takes time, commitment, resilience, and as much support as you can muster! Read a past patient's personal story of recovery and healing here

We have gathered a list of resources that may help support you on this amazing journey of healing:
