COR Residential Program at the McIver Center
COR Retreat participants spend five days and four nights together at the McIver Center for Spiritual Development at The Retreat in Wayzata, Minnesota. The Retreat is a nationally renowned 12 Step recovery center for drug and alcohol addiction. The McIver Center is a new and separate facility located on The Retreat campus in the Big Woods of Wayzata. Regularly used to house families of treatment participants for programs of their own, COR Retreat now calls the McIver Center home as well.
COR Retreat is designed to provide each participant with a positive experience in food management, including selection and portion control. These and other skills experienced at COR Retreat have proven to be integral to reversing compulsive overeating.
Family-style mealtime at the retreat will include nutritious, health conscious selections intended to support individual eating plans and dietary needs. The retreat menus have been selected to assist each attendee with abstaining from white flour, sugars and processed foods.
Individuals concerned about their relationship with food are provided a safe, caring and comfortable setting in which to recognize and begin the process to change destructive, unhealthy behaviors as they learn to adapt and assimilate positive, healthful coping mechanisms as part of a whole, joyful life.
