As a reminder, when you registered you have acknowledged this retreat requires all participants to participate together to share and grow using the S.L.A.A. Basic Text, as well as your own experience, strength and hope no matter how short or long you have been in recovery.
Please make sure you are available for the entirety for the times listed on the schedule. Self-care may be taken at times you are not chosen for speaking/leading/service or during the scheduled break times. 

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.
