We provide a 30 day retreat to wellness
Recovery from Alcoholism and Addiction

We welcome guests throughout the country into a safe and caring environment led by highly qualified professionals and volunteers whose drinking, drug or other substance abuse problem has been solved. Guests are introduced to a community of people with similar alcoholic or addiction experiences with whom they can relate. Through awareness and education the person sees the need for change and The Retreat shows them precisely the steps to take. Firmly grounded in the 12 Steps, our programme fosters honesty, integrity, accountability and change.
