Our 30-day Residential Programme welcomes guests from throughout the country into a safe and caring environment led by highly experienced staff members and volunteers whose drinking problem has been solved. Guests are introduced to a community of people with similar drinking experiences with whom they can relate. Through awareness and education, the guest 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.
Through daily 12 Step meetings, lecture and video presentations and group discussions, guests at The Retreat support one another in exploring the attitudes, behaviours and skills necessary to build a solid foundation for recovery. Our guests develop an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of recovery as outlined in the “Big Book” of Alcoholics Anonymous. Rehabilitation begins with structure.
