Jason’s Retreat, a men’s center, and Capistrano Community for Women offer safe and nurturing residential environments in which men and women can begin the process of recovery from addiction to alcohol and/or drugs. While providing an atmosphere of caring, with life’s basic necessities provided, we hope to give clients an opportunity to change long-entrenched attitudes and belief systems, and rebuild lives damaged by addiction.
