KeepCare is a new experimental, peer-led process group sponsored by the Fresh Start Alumni Association.
KeepCare is a continuing aftercare program for addicts and alcoholics with longer-term sobriety and clean time. Alcohol and drug rehabilitation center aftercare programs are typically for patients in their first year of sustained recovery. KeepCare has no limit on length in recovery.
While 12-step programs provide support for addicts and alcoholics in perpetuity, the format of their meetings tend to discourage open conversations, or "crosstalk", and the general solicitation and offering of advice. This is by design and not a flaw of 12-step programs. KeepCare is not intended to be an alternative to 12-step programs, but instead a supplemental group.

We're excited to introduce the new Fresh Start Alumni Association website! It's currently in it's "humble beginnings" state so keep coming back because we have big plans for it. Soon you'll be able to read stories and see art from fellow alumni as well as read original recovery related articles. There will also be an extensive resource section for finding local recovery related organizations and businesses as well as links to videos and articles from across the web. Stay tuned!
