service opportunities

Santé Center for Healing reflects the 12 Step communities’ belief that the act of service is a crucial aspect of an individual’s recovery; it’s even been referred to as a “pillar” for sustainable, long-term recovery. Perhaps you’ve heard it said another way, “you have to give it away in order to keep it.” The idea is service in spirit and pursuit of recovery can help the giver as much as the receiver. Not done for notoriety or praise, individuals in recovery pursue service opportunities because they know it strengthens their recovery, too; countless studies and research highlight evidence that helping others in recovery provides great benefit to the helper.  

In the spirit of the 12th step, Santé alumni carry the message of recovery to others. Santé alumni have the opportunity to:

  • speak on campus
  • serve as temporary sponsors to our current clients
  • provide transportation to outside meetings
  • be a local recovery contact for clients discharging to your geographical area 
  • answer questions for those in active addiction (and/or their loved ones) who have questions about treatment and recovery
