The St. Paul Community:
The Retreat Sober Residences are located in one of the most vibrant recovering communities in the country. The Twin Cities have been a mecca for recovery over 60 years.
Every day there are hundreds of Twelve Step meetings in the Minneapolis – St. Paul area. The Retreat has harnessed the power of this community by inviting members to share their experience, strength and hope with our guests. There are over 300 volunteers who actively participate in our continuum of services each month.
Our community based model exposes participants to a larger pool of wisdom than they would find in a more traditional staff based approach. As guests transition out of the residential program they have already established a network of support which is crucial to long term recovery. They have become a part of something greater and more powerful than themselves.
