Based on our extensive experience working with guests who have histories of trauma and emotional struggles with destructive compelling behaviors, we recommend as a minimum the 6 Week Program for maximum benefit.
Guests who invest 6 or more weeks to explore and practice new ways of being with self and others leave with confidence and a well- informed continuing care plan.
The experiences and knowledge gained during this time provide valuable tools and techniques that can be incorporated into daily life outside the center ensuring sustained change.
When you’re living in balance, you have a natural sense of ease, enthusiasm, and well-being. You sleep well and awaken feeling energized. You are able to express your unique talents in a way that creates happiness, harmony, and love for yourself and all those around you. In contrast, when you’re out of balance, life feels like a struggle.
Depending on your temperament, you may feel overwhelmed, anxious, irritable, or withdrawn. When your mind-body balance is disrupted, you’re also more prone to physical and emotional health issues such as depression and anxiety and use non-nurturing ways, including addiction, to cope with emotional pain.
Our compassionate and highly trained staff is experienced in helping people recover from all types of addiction and emotional health issues, including depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug abuse, psychological trauma, disordered eating, sexually addictive behavior, and smoking.
Our in-depth program includes a bio-psycho-social assessment that provides guests with an insight into areas they need to work on while at the Center. Our program also includes group and individual therapy sessions, yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture and art therapy, supported by the collective energy of loving staff committed to modeling connection, healing and wholeness.
Continuing Care is a valuable aspect of our program, offering support to guests as they return home and begin to incorporate the new tools, skills, and insights they have gained during their stay with us. Recognizing that healing is an ongoing process, we are uniquely attentive to Continuing Care.
“I have found my smile again. This place offered love and support when I needed it most. I worked through issues from my childhood that had been suppressed for 30 years. These issues were leading me to the very destructive behaviours that had to stop. In this loving setting, I was able to face the darkness and breakthrough to a beautiful loving place in the world just waiting for me to ‘show up!’ I’ve learned to truly be present in life and hug my inner child. Thank you! ”
Our Wellness Week retreats are designed for those who do not have an active addiction but who do want to make lasting, healthy changes for balance, happiness, and peace of mind into their lives.
For individuals who would like to invest more time into exploring deeper issues and address compulsive behavior.
