Michelle Goldberger, COR Retreat Program Director

Phone: 612-669-6110

COR Retreat Program Director Michelle Goldberger is a food addict who has maintained a sixty-pound weight loss since 2004.  A recovered alcoholic as well, she has been clean and sober since 1993.

Michelle’s battles with addiction and experience with the solution she found in the 12 Steps answered for her the mystery facing so many others:  “Why does this keep happening to me?”  Through COR Retreat she passes on what she has learned about a new way of living for those seeking freedom from compulsive overeating.

She is a conference speaker on addiction and has facilitated recovery groups and workshops at prominent treatment centers, such as The Retreat, for over ten years.  She holds two teaching licenses in the State of Minnesota and has taught children and adults in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan public schools (District 196) since 2006.  And through it all, she also raised five boys.

As COR Retreat’s Program Director, Michelle has made a vocation of showing anyone how to experience the same life-changing outcome:

  • Sixty pounds gone since 2004;
  • Self-loathing gone; and
  • Freedom from obsessive food thoughts and weight concerns.

COR Retreat Organization and Affiliation

COR Retreat, Inc. is a Minnesota non-profit corporation and a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. COR Retreat is operated by a small staff. The daily schedule at COR Retreat is facilitated by its Program Director and faithful volunteers who seek to “pass on” a solution of hope and recovery. The registration fees paid by COR Retreat participants cover only a portion of the cost of each retreat and  ongoing administration. The balance of the expenses are funded by donations from those committed to help others overcome their food addiction.

COR Retreat is not affiliated with the programs offered by The Retreat. However, COR Retreat is fortunate to be able to utilize the McIver Center and offer The Retreat’s award winning, and healthy, cuisine to its participants. COR Retreat is also not affiliated with and does not represent Overeater's Anonymous, Inc. or any other recovery program.
