Alumni & Aftercare Services

Aftercare planning is provided for all treatment clients across the agency’s continuum of care. Adelphoi has been offering aftercare and alumni services throughout its entire history. In 1993, Adelphoi combined its already existing aftercare program and added the outcomes component, centralizing these services with the inception of the Outcomes and Alumni Office.
