STAR offers an opportunity to deepen and enhance your own recovery process. Directly addressed within the context of our developmental, experiential process are issues of codependency, addiction, and compulsive behaviors. During the course of STAR, you will explore the roots of addiction, specifically, aspects of your personal history that may be contributing factors. Aspects such as:

  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
  • Childhood Abuse
  • Traumatic Events
  • Dysfunctional Family Dynamics

Identifying, exploring, and releasing painful memories from the past helps to heal the underlying source fueling the addiction, and temper addictive impulses. Many participants come to STAR already involved with 12-Step programs, whereas others join after their participation, as a way of continuing the recovery process began during the program. Optional 12-Step groups are available at each STAR Retreat. You will be supported in your recovery program during your stay.
