An experienced retreat leader will share their experience, strength, and hope.


Come for a meaningful community experience while nestled in the beauty of nature... a recovery weekend that will recharge your program.

This retreat is designed to create an experience that resonates with you and your recovery. You may decide to attend every workshop, skip one or two, take a walk on the beach, sit and meditate, and even learn to hula hoop and boogie board!
