Recovery Retreats


How soon do you want to get well? When we decided that we wanted to live a joyous and free life, we wanted to know HOW to do that, right away. What is the secret? Our founders said it was a Spiritual Awakening as a result a of a specific course of action. Come to a retreat to discover the course of action and the power of the Spiritual Awakening. People who have experienced the retreat have said:

“The retreat connected my program with my faith.”

“I learned more here in five hours while going though the Steps than I have in ten years of hanging around AA rooms.”

“It’s like looking behind the curtain at the Wizard of OZ, I saw where the power of AA comes from.”

“Now I get it.”

Attend a retreat to find out more about how thousands of people have “recovered” from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. Find a place to call home in the recovery family.

There are currently over 30 Spiritual Retreat locations in the United States, England and Ireland. Click on a location button to find a time and place that works for you.

At Came To Believe Recovery Inc., we are dedicated to providing the highest quality spiritual retreat experience possible for all – the family and those addicted to drugs or alcohol. All of the CTBR retreats throughout the world are independently run. Leaders have years of recovery and volunteer because of their passion to continue carrying the AA message, just as the AA founders shared with them.
