Loyola Jesuit Center offers recovery retreats for men and for women. Matt Talbot retreats are an opportunity for recovering alcoholics and addicts to enhance their spirituality and sober way of life in a setting that promotes fellowship and sharing throughout the weekend. Retreats are based upon the spirituality of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and the 12-step program. Our Retreat Directors are usually both a recovering alcoholic and members of the clergy who bring valuable insights into the spiritual element of the disease of alcoholism. A recovery retreat weekend includes: daily Mass, Reconciliation, Adoration, conferences, discussion group break-out sessions and AA meetings. St. Camillus retreats are for those recovering from the addiction of gambling and follow a similar format. These retreats have proven extremely beneficial to the recovery and healing process as is shown by the frequent return of many retreatants. All faiths are welcome.  Please call our office at (973) 539-0740 if you require financial assistance or need flexible funding at this time. No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

In addition to Matt Talbot #1, other Matt Talbot groups are scheduled throughout the year. Please call (973) 539-0740 or email retreathouse@loyola.org for more information.
