Format of the Retreat:

  • During the retreat weekend we will read and share on the 12 Steps-together. If you have worked on the Steps in this type of format before, you already know its value. If you have not done any study of the Steps, intensive or otherwise, this is a great way to do it, especially the first time. It gives you hope and faith that the program steps work. Regardless of where any one individual is in the Step study process, we are able to learn from sharing our experience, strength and hope with each other.

  • There will be leaders and speakers selected at random on the Friday introduction of the weekend. We trust our Higher Power in this process and know whoever is chosen to speak or lead is strengthening their own recovery and offering value to ours.

Cost to Register: $50 (before 10/30/20) / $75 (after 10/31/20) helps to support the Greater Delaware Valley Intergroup to continue our work on carrying the message to the Sex and Love addict who still suffers. No more registrations will take place after 12/4/2020, 11:59pm ET. You will also receive a packet of information mailed to the address you provide.

  • Invitation to the Zoom weekend

  • A retreat packet that will be mailed 10 to 14 days prior to the weekend (US ONLY/ Outside US will be emailed)
