1) A weekend of fellowship with other men in recovery in the tranquility of beautiful and spacious grounds.
2) Retreat leaders who have worked all 12 Steps and want to help your recovery.
3) Two (2) nights lodging and four (4) meals, which include breakfast, lunch & dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday morning.

When does it start? Opening ceremonies begin at 7:30pm Friday night.

Will there be any other activities available? During the Saturday afternoon break you can hike, swim, bird watch, play tennis, volleyball or basketball, or just relax and meditate. Massages are available for a fee to La Casa.

Why should I go? Dozens of men have gotten abstinence at this retreat. Many others come every year to reenergize their program. This is the 22nd year of the retreat. Recovery happens here!
