Alumnae Program for Women & Girls

At TK, our support and encouragement of our residents does not end when you leave treatment. That’s why we created an alumnae program, allowing us to remain in touch and continue to support each of you in your unique recovery journey.

Threasa “Tee” Kluever, MSW, Alumnae Coordinator

I am proud and excited to serve as your Alumnae Coordinator. As a person in recovery myself, I understand the challenges of leaving treatment and building a meaningful life in recovery.  I have walked a similar road filled with turbulence and triumphs that recovery brings. By continuing to incorporate the skills and values taught at TK, I am able to serve this community.  I am here to help confront challenges and celebrate the successes of all our residents. We can do hard things, and together, we will celebrate those hard things.

As we all work through the challenges we are facing as a result of COVID-19, we want to be able to offer you the ongoing support you need. We have compiled a list of resources that we hope will be of benefit as you navigate this difficult time. Learn more by clicking the button below.

Our Alumnae Virtual Support Groups

Alumnae Connections are virtual support groups that are available exclusively for our Timberline Knolls alumnae community at no expense to them. The purpose of these groups is to provide ongoing support by allowing our alumnae the opportunity to discuss concerns and topics of importance to their own recovery and well-being. Our groups meet Tuesday Evening and Thursday Morning. If you are an alumnae who wishes to join, please contact or 618.518.7726 for the links.

Share Your Treatment and Recovery Story

Have a story you’d like to share about your recovery from an eating disorder, addiction, mood disorder, and / or trauma? We’d love to hear from you. And so would the hundreds of women who are in the same place today you were once in during your time in residential treatment. There is hope in your stories. There is strength in your healing. And we’re just as proud of you today as we were when you walked through – and then out – of our doors.

Submission Success!

The transition into PHP from Residential was the most scary but wonderful thing that happened to me during my TK experience. It was hard to leave 24/7 care, and I was nervous about changing the atmosphere around me but once I stepped foot in that building I had a certain feeling of calm. I was approached by all different people introducing me to the new world I was now a part of.  My housemate gave me the best welcome and helped me get settled in.  I found that the groups in PHP gave me a new and different experience in treatment, and I was able to look at things from an entirely point of view.  There were groups I attended that didn’t happen on lodge, and the staff was there to help support me, yet give me the gentle nudge I needed to help myself and figure out how I was going to be able to survive in my world at home without all the people I have been getting use to as backups for me. I can’t say it was a seamless transition but I learned that nothing is a straight line and you cannot know until you try. Being able to utilize the step down process gave me the skills I needed to succeed in real life and flourish in whatever I choose to do.
