Guest House provides a special community atmosphere for men suffering from addiction. It demonstrates that they are not alone and that recognition of their dependency should not be a source of shame but rather the first step toward resumption of happy and purposeful lives.
At Guest House we know that the foundation of our successful recovery program depends on the content and focus, but we also know there are other factors that contribute to our success. We believe that the unique nature of the religious life for priests, brothers, deacons and seminarians requires special, personalized attention which honors not only their human dignity but their calling and commitment as well.
