Alumni Program

The We Level Up Rehab Alumni Program aims to support clients and their families after your inpatient residential recovery rehab treatment has ended. Client post inpatient aftercare planning is vital to your continued recovery success. Most people who had participated in a drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation program and completed it relapsed within the first year. Therefore, it is crucial to continue aftercare outpatient addiction treatment.

Staying connected in a recovery support community like our alumni program increases the longevity and quality of your sobriety. We ensure that all clients receive free aftercare planning support. Our commitment to client success continues, even after you leave our treatment facility. The free alumni program for addiction clients serves as the perfect aftercare network for those practicing long-term sobriety and seeking encouragement from others.

The We Level up family believes it is important for those who complete our addiction treatment programs to stay connected for a lifetime. Individuals comprising our alumni ranks, led by our alumni specialists can constantly support growth through recovery. Our team is here to guide you through your ongoing sobriety journey. When patients complete treatment, their recovery is a new way of life. Being around those on the same journey is encouraging and uplifting.

Our Alumni Team is dedicated to staying connected with patients and supporting them after treatment. The We Level Up Alumni community can help increase the length and quality of your recovery. This is a great way to avoid relapse. Also, an excellent opportunity to associate with others who can motivate you during early recovery. The recovery process is a lifelong journey that never ends. The We Level Up Treatment Center is here to support you every step of the way.

There is no cure for addiction. It is a life-long challenge you take on to improve your health and well-being. Even once you complete your treatment program with We Level Up you are not on your own to deal with it as you depart. Rather, you can get help consistently in a number of ways. At We Level Up, we provide you with the tools and resources you need to achieve continued recovery success.

Katie Dalo-Cousins
Alumni Director

Katie has a Bachelors Degree in Education and Psychology and a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work, where her focus was predominantly on the cycle of trauma within family systems. She is also a Certified Life Coach.

Katie has been working in the mental/behavioral health field for twelve years and has taken on many roles when working with individuals in recovery. Her experience ranges from an admissions counselor, case manager, aftercare coordinator, and primary therapist to the National Director of Alumni Services for two additional behavioral health organizations.

Katie has a personal stake in the addiction field, as she has lost many family members to the disease of addiction and feels that individuals that work towards an authentic life in recovery are some of the most courageous people that thrive in our world.  She is a passionate and enthusiastic professional that loves to empower those that may need someone to walk with them on their journey and she is compelled to reduce the uneducated stigma of addiction in our country.

Farah Gutierrez
Alumni Coordinator

My name is Farah Gutierrez, I am originally from Stoughton Mass, and I moved to south Florida in 2009. I started working in the substance use and mental health field as a behavioral health technician 4 years ago because I wanted to make a difference in people's lives.  Over time,  I grew slowly from behavioral health tech to a supervisor and then moved to the Director of Operations role at a Florida-based detox/residential.  I learned quickly that I wanted to be more involved in directly impacting the patients’ lives, so I moved into the alumni/outreach department. I am now providing direct services to our patients on a daily basis in the forms of check-in, support, crisis intervention, and coordinating alumni meetings and events.

I am currently working on my CAC to gain more knowledge and insight into the disease of addiction and I plan on continuing my work in this field, long-term, in order to break the stigma. My goal is to show our patients the importance and the power of community, that they are not alone, how to make new healthy, long-term relationships, and to aid in repairing old ones that may have been damaged.

I love doing what I do because I thrive on seeing and hearing our alumni's progress.  I am proud of the ways they are helping other people and I am constantly reminded of how what we do makes a difference in not only their lives but all those they touch as well.
