A Healing Environment

St. Gregory Recovery Center offers an advanced rehab program like no other in the United States. When you enter into the care of the St. Gregory Center, you are able to find full recovery in mind, body, and spirit. Our Program allows guests to cultivate the confidence and strength needed to make the decision to leave behind their drug or alcohol dependency.

Individuals struggle with different issues and it is essential to be in an environment that is conducive to confronting these issues and working through them. Often, people will turn to drugs or alcohol to create a sense of artificial happiness in order to cope with their personal issues. These issues often include low self-esteem, depression, and an overall feeling of worthlessness. Being in our healing environment encourages our guests to begin developing leadership skills, assertiveness (which is key to making positive choices), and greater levels of maturity. While most who take drugs or alcohol are able to “walk away” and continue to lead productive, healthy lives, there are some individuals who make the choice to continue using drugs or alcohol as the problems that surround them amplify. It is this unintuitive response to unhappiness that can necessitate the need for a retreat.

Finding Permanent Recovery

Rehab at St. Gregory helps guests learn new skills that can empower them to make the positive choices necessary to abandon their addictions and lead fulfilling lives. Individuals who are struggling with dependency can learn how to apply their new, positive, decision-making abilities to a variety of situations that pertain directly to their lives. In contrast to the cold, clinical environments of most hospital-based drug addiction recovery programs, we offer a warm, caring environment to promote enrichment and learning.

The Value of St. Gregory Recovery Center

We accept you just as you are at St. Gregory. Not judging you, but caring for you; not looking down on you, but rather lifting you up, we extend a helping hand to guide you away from addiction’s grasp and back to peace, freedom, and wholeness. In short, we help you regain your life.

Here, all the cares, troubles, and burdens that accompany addictions are left behind. Providing a residential setting, we offer you the tranquility and solitude simply to reflect, reassess and pray. As you rediscover who you are and grow in your understanding of and relationship with Christ, the transformation begins.

This is a life-altering transformation that results in the lasting sobriety you have always wanted as well as the freedom and peace you so very much deserve. Ultimately, you will leave here with the ability to continue this change and the tools to sustain it. It all begins with your decision. Why not give yourself the opportunity for a new life?
