Why The Retreat?

In 1991, The Community of Recovering People (CORP), a non-profit organization consisting of a group of dedicated professionals and recovered individuals, shared their commitment to creating a continuum of affordable, accessible and effective residential recovery services to help alcohol and drug dependent individuals recover.

The result is an innovative residential recovery continuum that provides time out for those in need. The Retreat represents a non-clinical, mutual help approach to the problem of alcohol and drug dependency. This supportive, educational setting is grounded in the spiritual principles of AA. By providing a safe and supportive environment to study and practice these principles, The Retreat opens the door to a life of contented sobriety.

If you are looking for a quiet, reflective and nourishing retreat space, you will love our McIver Center. We believe the development of the human spirit is critical to a successful and fulfilling life. Our facility provides an environment that supports this development. It is an affordable space with easy access to the metro area. When you enter our grounds you leave the city behind and are surrounded by the beauty of nature.

The McIver Center is available for use by private groups. Our 18 bed facility can accommodate groups of 24 for daytime events. Our staff is available to work with each group to help shape and personalize their retreat experience.
