Who the Saprea Retreat Is For

Any adult woman who was sexually abused at or before age 18 is eligible to attend the Saprea Retreat. However, the retreat is best suited to survivors who:

  • Function well across multiple areas of their lives.
  • Can safely live in a social environment for 4 days with a group of other survivors.
  • Are able to abstain from drugs and alcohol for 4 days without withdrawals.
  • Are still affected, often deeply, by their past. These effects can persist even amidst the achieved successes of raising a family, holding a job, and/or contributing to the community.

The Saprea Retreat is not a crisis intervention program. We also do not provide any kind of individual or group therapy at the retreat. We encourage women who are experiencing active drug or alcohol addictions, significant untreated mental health symptoms, or homelessness to seek other professional help before applying.
