The New Standard For Recovery
THE ST. GREGORY
Return to Normal
The St. Gregory Recovery Program begins by breaking the cycle of addiction and helping your body to become well enough to recover. Guests requiring detox with St. Gregory Retreat Centers are provided safe, restful surroundings at our local hospital. At our partnered detoxification facility, guests are under the care of a team of physicians, nurses, and other professionals who manage withdrawal symptoms and guide the process of breaking the chemical aspects of addiction.
Change your Thinking
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Emotional responses to circumstances in life can act as triggers to use drugs and alcohol.. Cognitive behavior therapy—consistently shown to be the most effective therapeutic method for treatment of substance abuse—shows you how to change your responses to these deeply rooted thought processes. At St. Gregory’s Retreat Centers, you’ll learn to better understand stress and anxiety, and you’ll become equipped to handle difficult emotional situations without the use of drugs or alcohol.
Transform Your Life
New Habit Development
The St. Gregory Recovery Program focuses on providing tools needed to build positive habits. With a focus on developing life-transforming habits, learn to become the person that you want to be. Our program draws on tool drawn from positive psychology and the classical view of virtue to direct guests toward building new habits to transform their lives.
Repair Your Brain
Years of drug and alcohol abuse take a toll on your body. By damaging the neurotransmitters in your brain’s reward centers drug and alcohol significantly alter the ability of your brain to function. Amino acids, used by the body to produce neurotransmitters, become out of balance through abuse of dopamine, GABA, enkaphalins, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Many treatment programs mask your cravings, but St. Gregory Retreat Centers use amino acid to repair chemical imbalances and restore natural brain function.
Strengthen Your Body
Health & Wellness
St. Gregory Retreat Centers’ health assessment and fitness screening includes a full medical history and physical. These initial assessments provide the framework used to create a fitness plan that works for you.
Support Your Recovery

Your Recovery Life Plan will be constructed with a counselor that will be assigned to help you to develop long-term goals, and your action plan to help you accomplish those goals. This resource has been proven invaluable in helping graduates of St. Gregory Retreat Centers to maintain the motivation and resilience necessary for a life free from substance abuse.
