My name is Becky Wheelock, and as most of you already know, I’m the Alumni Coordinator at Wasatch Crest. I want to officially welcome you to the Wasatch Warriors alumni program!
You have worked so hard to get where you are, and your dedication to creating a new life for yourself has not gone unnoticed. I can’t wait to see the amazing things that the future has in store for you.
As you set out on your journey, I want to tell you a little bit about what it means to be a Wasatch Warrior, and why it’s so important for you to stay connected to a recovery community.
Being part of the Wasatch Warriors Alumni program means that you have successfully completed your treatment at Wasatch Crest, and are committed to writing a new story for your life. You should be extremely proud of yourself. You are doing something that others will never be able to do or even have the opportunity to do. By welcoming you to the Wasatch Warriors, we want to help you make the most of your fresh start.
When I left treatment, it was so important for me to find my people and where I fit in. I was able to establish meaningful connections at 12-step meetings. You might find your recovery community at events like sober softball or sober open mic nights. There are so many paths to recovery, and whatever path you choose, the Wasatch Warriors are here to support you.
For our Wasatch Warriors, we host weekly alumni meetings, monthly game nights, sober softball games, recovery retreats, and camping trips. You can always find the most up-to-date event listings on our Alumni Events page. Additionally, we want to check-in with you and celebrate your recovery milestones through regular phone calls and emails. We will also always be here to welcome you with open arms through any struggles you may encounter.
I’m a big believer that it’s important to recover out loud, so others know they are not alone as they battle the disease of addiction. We ask that you might consider sharing your recovery story with us, so that your strength and courage can inspire the community. If you’re interested in sharing your story, you can submit it to us in writing, through an audio or video recording, or retell it during a phone interview.
If you’d like to learn more about sharing your story, or just want to connect, feel free to reach out to me at anytime:

Never forget that I believe in you, and you are meant to have an amazing life. You are worth it!
