Cardinal Retreats helps veterans release their negative experiences of war, re-establish healthy relationships with loved ones and reintegrate fully into family and community living through 7-day therapeutic residential retreats and ongoing online support.

Using both traditional and alternative therapies, our 7-day residential retreats are specially designed to help veterans re-adjust to family life and re-establish healthy relationships after war.

Guided by expert counselors and therapists who are aware and sensitive to PTSD issues, veterans and their spouses/partners receive education, stress management tools and relationship counseling  to help them address and overcome PTSD-related relationship challenges in a safe and relaxed environment.

Based on our successful track record, participants can expect to leave with a fresh perspective, a strengthened connection and the tools to support their renewed relationship post-retreat.
