We Are Raising Money For Our Scholarship Fund
The Retreat NZ have established a scholarship fund to assist those who cannot afford the full fees for their rehabilitation. Every cent donated goes directly to the Scholarship Fund which goes directly to individuals needing help – there are no admin fees or overhead costs. Our goal is to provide a scholarship programme that enables The Retreat to offer 20% – 75% scholarship to those who are unable to fully fund themselves.The Retreat NZ is a registered charity therefore you will receive a tax deductible receipt for your donation.
Donate To The Recovery Tree & Support Our Scholarship Fund

Hear From One Of Our Scholarship Recipients
I called the retreat a broken woman. I had relapsed throughout lockdown and I could see no way out and I was scared for my life, I could not see the light of life through the darkness. I reached out to The Retreat and I received a phone call from Baz at The Retreat. That morning, conversations had gone on behind the scenes with Managers at The Retreat and I was told I had a place in Primary care and I had received the gift of a scholarship. The relief was immense, Tears of joy ensued. I cannot thank you enough for the gift of this scholarship. In my life I will strive to ‘Pay it forward” while living and breathing AA and the 12 steps. If it had not been for this gift, I would be still battling the demon of this disease of alcoholism. I would have lost my home and family. I believe I would be in hospital in a very serious condition or dead without it.
