FAQ

What is The Taylor Made Retreat?
The Taylor Made Retreat is a 30 - 90 day residential program, offering an immersion in the Twelve Steps as a design for living and an integration into the 12 Step community at large.


How is The Taylor Made Retreat different from treatment?
The Taylor Made Retreat is not treatment. We are a supportive, educational environment rather than a clinical or medical program. Because we serve people who already know they have “the problem”, we don’t directly provide assessment or clinical counseling services. We do, however, provide an intensive orientation to the solution of recovery embodied in the Twelve Steps.

 

What are the admission criteria?
We serve adult men (and women in the future) who know they have the problem of alcoholism and/or drug dependency, are motivated to recover and are physically and psychologically stable.

 

How long do people stay?
The Taylor Made Retreat’s minimum length of stay is 30 days, however people may extend their stay as needed. There is a 90 day Extended Retreat experience for those in need. 

 

How much does it cost?
The Retreat’s residential program $4,900 for the first 30 days and $4,100 for each additional 30 days.

 

Is there any scholarship help available?
There will be partial scholarship available for those who qualify.

 

What is the curriculum or program at Taylor Made?
The core of our program is an in-depth study of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. The program also includes presentations and practical application of Steps One – Eight and the principles that support the 12 Steps. We draw from the local community of recovering people to provide our daily program.

 

Do you have a long-term care program and/or sober housing?
The Taylor Made Retreat offers a 90-day extended Retreat program for those who need more time in a residential setting to focus on their recovery. The Taylor Made Retreat has close ties to the local Sober Living Community and can help with longer term sober living.

Do you have a shorter-stay program?
