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.

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.
