FAQ

What will this retreat be like?
In short, this retreat will be outrageously fun. At times, your cheeks will hurt from laughing, there will be personal breakthroughs, there may be tears, life long connections will be made, and it’s all going to take place outside of your comfort zone.
I’ve never been to an AA or 12 step meeting, will I feel out of place?
No, not at all. This is a non 12 step based recovery retreat that pulls resources and tools from all different kinds of programs. There may be references to 12 step programs, but Recovery Elevator is in no way affiliated with any programs.

Will there be mention of God or a Higher Power?
This is not a spiritual based recovery retreat, but with almost 100% certainty, you will higher power references. The good news is, if this doesn’t appeal to you, the pine cone you picked up in the parking lot can substitute as your higher power for the weekend.
What does someone bring on a recovery retreat?
Pack for warm days, cool nights and clothes for light to moderate outdoor activity. Please bring these specific items: a sleeping bag (rated at 40 degrees), pillow, hiking shoes (boots not necessary), a notebook or journal, headlamp, bug spray, sun screen, a self development book, and water bottle.
What are the workshops going to be like?

You can expect to see workshops on some of the following: clarifying your vision, creating an action plan for long term sobriety, optimizing your environment, creating positive mindsets, mindfulness, meditation, meditation with music, yoga for recovery, the art of journaling, health, wellness, nutrition, the morning routine, and more.

Sweet, summer camp in the Rockies! Zip line, rock climbing, and rafting!
Yes, these activities are a blast, but are not part of the itinerary. The schedule is full of workshops geared towards learning how to lead a successful life in recovery but we will be doing some hiking near the cabins. We highly recommend you add a couple of days to your trip to experience all the Big Sky Country has to offer.
Is there a sobriety requirement?
We ask that all attendees have at least 30-60 days of sobriety. However, we understand fully that slip ups occur and this is not cause for cancellation of the trip. We do ask that all withdrawal symptoms have passed before attending this retreat as there will not be trained medical professionals on staff.
Can spouses or significant others attend?

Since getting outside of our comfort zones is our motto, no spouses or significant others are allowed.

What do my flight times need to be?
Transportation to the retreat leaves at 5:30pm Thursday, August 24th. Plan on arriving at the Bozeman, Yellowstone International airport before then. Transportation will arrive at the airport Sunday August 27th at noon, so flights need to be at least 1.5 hours after that.
Who will be teaching the workshops?

The final lineup has yet to be determined, but industry professionals from across the country will be leading the workshops. Paul, the host of the Recovery Elevator podcast, will be giving the Thursday welcoming address.

I remember a lot of hot dogs at summer camp when I was a kid. What will the food be like?
3 daily healthy meals are prepared by in house staff. There will be a vegetarian option for each meal and if you have any other special dietary requests, please email info@recoveryelevator.com.
What kind of physical activities can we expect to see?

We won’t be scaling Denali, but we will do a couple short hikes, play some cornhole, and some other old school summer camp games.

Do I have to attend all the workshops?
All workshops are optional, however, we highly recommend you attend as many as possible.
I've changed my mind and no longer wish to attend.
Cancellations up to 14 days of the retreat will be fully refunded. Cancellations within two weeks of the event will not be refunded.
