Walking With The Wounded
September 22- 24, 2021
This complimentary three-day workshop is offered for sisters in leadership, vocation/formation staff and nursing/health care leaders who are responsible for health care policies and services, and for personnel and ministry issues. The sessions are designed to promote knowledge and understanding of addiction and other compulsive behaviors and to teach skills for helping community members who may be suffering from such conditions.
Our campus includes two gender-specific residential treatment centers on 105 tranquil acres.
We offer a holistic approach to treatment and care that is based on the spirituality of the twelve-step recovery model. Our approach empowers our clients to mindfully address substance use disorders, process addictions, compulsive overeating, and other behavioral health challenges. Guest House is staffed by licensed, certified, on-site clinical and spiritual professionals who are dedicated to the unique needs of Catholic clergy and religious in their journey to recovery. Guest House augments residential treatment with strong aftercare support programs, educational workshops, and alumni reunions and retreats.
The Healing Ministry Of Guest House
Some may wonder, ‘How is it that Catholic clergy or religious women and men are in need of specialized treatment for addiction?’ The individuals who serve God and the Church as ordained clergy or consecrated religious all have one thing in common – they are all human beings. They are human beings who are subject to the same challenges regarding their health and wellness, as are all other human beings. We welcome our clergy and religious in their search for recovery and are committed to walking beside them along their journey to finding peace and wellbeing.
