Register for EnCOR

COR Retreat is proud to offer EnCOR, a follow-up retreat designed to guide you through Steps 4 through 12. EnCOR provides an amazing opportunity to be together, once again, at the McIver Center and continue our recovery through the 9th Step--where the miracles occur for many of us--and on to the 12th Step--where we celebrate our spiritual experience and commit to abstain by carrying the message.

Like the original COR Retreat, EnCOR will last 5 days and 4 nights and the $950 registration fee will include lodging, meals and all retreat materials. To attend, you must have completed the first 3 steps.

COR Retreat Daily Schedule

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.
