The goal of Coalition Recovery is to help restore people’s lives through recovery. However, when looking at the stages of recovery, treatment is only the beginning. Recovery like a race and treatment is like training. While some people can place without ever training, the majority of us perform better with guidance – especially expert guidance.

At Coalition Recovery, we value aftercare and view it as a prominent factor in long-term recovery. Every individual in our care is invited to participate in our aftercare program. We prioritize ongoing clinical care as part of our gold standard aftercare. Learn more by contacting our team today at 888.707.2873 to ask about aftercare and our Renaissance program.

The Renaissance Program

/On top of these aftercare resources, we have pioneered an entirely new entity to aftercare designed specifically for students: The Renaissance program.

The heart of the Renaissance program in Tampa Bay is admittance into higher education but it can also be beneficial for career development.

Not only will we guide you through the multifaceted processes, but we will establish a clean and safe environment. The Renaissance program is an all-encompassing program designed to help those with substance abuse pursue a better life through education and life management skills.

Substance abuse is known to take over lives, and in effect can lead to a downward spiral towards self-resentment. The Renaissance program is our helping hand to carry individuals out of the dark and into a new and prosperous life. Higher education or a new job can be a stepping stone that helps individuals achieve goals they may have never thought possible. We springboard them onto this stepping stone by creating a seamless process while also ensuring they are equipped with the right resources to attend college or their new career safely, without any distractions or worry of relapse. We accomplish this all while in treatment.

What to Expect in The Renaissance Program

Be it finding the right job, higher education opportunities, vocational schools, or our alumni support network, our Renaissance program was designed to create a total personal transformation, and help equip our guests with an abundance of resources and opportunities.

We don’t limit The Renaissance program to just students. Many of the resources we provide are useful for everyday life goals such as job exploration and preparation. Our case managers will help you with any goal you seek, educational, or professional.

We understand that everyone’s situation is unique, and much like our individualized clinical treatment, our Renaissance program in Tampa Bay has many different starting points. Whether you were already admitted to a University and were removed due to substance abuse issues or have never received a high school diploma, we will help you get back on track. We create clearly defined pathways and benchmarks to help you accomplish your goals. Alongside academic admission, we will provide ongoing clinical care and connect you to our ever-engaging community to support you. From the start of your 90-day treatment, our Renaissance case managers work with you to begin laying the groundwork for your higher education pursuits. Due to our Collegiate Recovery Communities, the Renaissance program is applicable to any aspiring students, enrolled or not.

Collegiate Recovery Communities

Collegiate Recovery Communities (or CRCs) bridge together college students who are going through recovery. College is a very challenging time for those in recovery as it creates many stressful environments that create vulnerability towards relapse. By creating a culture of like-minded individuals who understand life in recovery, it builds a safe and supportive environment for these students. CRC’s can provide students with advising and counseling from specialists who understand the recovery process. These student rehab programs can also provide areas around campus where students can socialize and host support group meetings. Students are then able to connect with resources and people without constant pressures of alcohol and drugs. To be eligible to participate in these programs, some schools may require successful completion of a treatment program, but most schools just require participating in group meetings and community service projects, along with the willingness to abstain from alcohol and drug use.

While CRCs have existed for years, it wasn’t until the Renaissance program was created that a treatment provider connected the two vital resources. The structured pathways created by our program enable gaps in care to be bridged and truly connect you to the resources available. We guide you through the admissions process, move to college, and connect directly with the counselors and student population to provide a seamless transition into your new life.

Unique Pathways

High School Diploma / G.E.D

The first step towards higher education is obtaining your G.E.D. Coalition and its partners provide weekly classes beginning during your last 30 days of treatment so you’re equipped with the information you need to pass the exam. Our case managers work with you to coordinate with work, family, and community so you’re in the best state possible to succeed. As always – the classes and support, are completely free.

State Colleges

The Associate of Arts degree is often the next step in the quest for higher education. We work with you to gain admission to many state and community colleges. Once admitted, we provide ongoing support and contact to enable you to have the highest chance of success. Once your AA is obtained, we work to provide you with a direct connection to universities or help you apply to other universities. We also help you navigate the various financial restrictions/barriers to entry and help you to overcome them by educating you about all your possible options so you are able to make the best decision for your unique situation.

Alternative Paths – Vocational Schools

Everyone’s path is unique, many may not have the time and resources to attend a university college. Vocational schools help develop the necessary skills to obtain a more valuable occupation while being able to work around a normal lifestyle. This alone can be an invaluable step to long-term recovery. Coalition Recovery partners with many different trade schools in and around Tampa Bay to make the next step something worth being excited about. Programs include job training for:

  • HVAC
  • Automotive
  • Plumbing
  • Aviation
  • Electrician

Ongoing Support Through the Renaissance Program

Coalition Recovery believes that our connection to you doesn’t conclude when you leave our 90-day program. Throughout your time in the Renaissance program, you’ll find resources, community, and advocacy from the Coalition Renaissance case managers and the entire Coalition family.

  • Continued therapy – We connect with the clinicians at your respective institutions and work together to create a continuum of care. This means you’re not starting from scratch, and your care continues for years to come.
  • Community in your new life – You’re not the only one going through the Renaissance program. This means you’ll know people in each stage of the various programs within Renaissance. Support networks and groups are vital to keeping you accountable and feeling connected to your long-term recovery.
  • Resources – Renaissance program case managers will work with you to educate you on all the resources available at your disposal. These include resources relating to financial aid, healthcare, affordable housing, sober housing, and more.
  • Advocacy – Coalition leads the advocacy movement in higher education. We’re working hard to change the way institutions, companies, and society play their part in curbing substance abuse. We’ve met with the leaders of top U.S. universities to allow felony leniency in instances of admissions for individuals in recovery.
