In an effort to sustain individuals’ growth and accomplishments achieved while in the therapeutic courts, the Alaska Therapeutic Court Alumni Group was formed in 2006. While graduation from a therapeutic court recognizes the completion of a rigorous 18-month treatment program, the alumni group offers an opportunity to commit to maintaining past achievements within the program without the strict monitoring and structure previously provided. The group welcomes current court participants, as well as graduates of all therapeutic courts.

The Alaska Therapeutic Court Alumni seeks to promote healthy lifestyles through a safe and supportive self-governed body and to uplift and encourage therapeutic court participants and graduates toward positive change that promotes sobriety and right living.

Even after relapsing, I was told to keep fighting, to hold on, and to never let go. I was encouraged to keep the faith because no matter what, Wellness Court would be there and wouldn’t give up on me.”
