The study of the St. Jude Retreat House™ over the past 2 decades have proven that a social/educational program for the recovery from alcohol and drug addiction is, by far, the most successful recovery methodology. The Saint Jude Program is the first and only social/educational program in New York State. The Saint Jude Program™ teaches people how to stay sober and drug free forever, not one day at a time.
When you walk through the doors of any of our retreat houses you realize that these are not a sterile, cold rehabilitation treatment centers. The atmosphere at the St. Jude Retreat Houses is simply the same as a bed and breakfast.
The St. Jude Retreats are warm, inviting and home-like, making the experience of getting well pleasant.
