A brother with an addiction inflicts such pain and often has no concept of the hurt and wreckage he is leaving behind. Addictions are hard, for both the addicted and anyone close to them. How do we set healthy boundaries that protect everyone? AWA is here for you.

How do we cope? Take a vacation for a brief respite, only to return to find the same problems and the situation no better than when you left.

What is a better option to cope? Take a vacation that will better equip you with coping skills, a plan and goals. Go on a personalized, professional counseling retreat, and go fishing, too!

Imagine the joy, release and relaxation of a vacation: a bike ride and picnic on the beach; waking up to hot tea or coffee and an amazing bay view from your deck; a stroll through a quaint, seaside town; fishing with eagles soaring overhead. Now, imagine these wonderful experiences with a personal, productive session discussing your goals, thoughts and working toward peace and harmony that you can bring home. A session on the beach, a session around the fire, a session on your deck – how, when and where you would like your sessions is tailored to each guest. AWA is here for you.
