To protect the health and wellbeing of our community during the COVID-19 outbreak, this event will be rescheduled. A new date will be forthcoming. Thank you, and be well.


A Weekend of Self-Discovery and Spiritual Restoration 

Return to yourself during a weekend retreat full of Twelve Step guidance, fellowship and inward discovery. Our recovery experts will guide you to find, write and reflect on your new truths in recovery—and discard all the old ones. With calming nature and expertise all around, you'll find ample inspiration to conduct an earnest self-exploration through Step Four. Remember, it's never the wrong time to write your recovery.
