Our Program

The Taylor Made Retreat is dedicated to creating a path to a spiritual awakening for the folks that come to stay with us.

The facility, the property and the program are all geared toward providing an atmosphere and opportunity to have your perceptions changed. 

We eliminate outside distractions and focus on the 12 steps and their application in our lives. Both in the program house and outside. The 12 step immersion is augmented with Pilates, yoga, mindful meditation and rigorous exercise…
