2019 12-Step Women's Weekend Retreat

Friday, February 8 – Sunday, February 10, 2019

Description of retreat:
At the retreat weekend we do an intensive study of 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 as 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.
