* Overview of joining, leaving, and recovery
* Why people leave groups
* Recovery needs of former members
* Trance and triggers
* Trauma and recovery
* Building relationships
* Breakouts for families, former members
* Evening films followed by discussion
This workshop has been made possible by donations to ICSA and the willingness of facilitators to volunteer their time. Without the dedication of these people, registration fees would be much higher than they are. Registration fees are quite low, given that they cover two nights’ occupancy and six meals. If you are financially needy, please contact us at (239)-514-3081 or All contacts will be kept strictly confidential.
Canterbury Retreat and Conference Center, a mission and ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, provides a peaceful, lakeside setting for groups and individual guests to enjoy. Canterbury Retreat is located just minutes away from Orlando and just 40 minutes to local area tourist attractions. Please make note that some Map / GPS data bases have Canterbury located on the west side of Alafaya Trail / Hwy 434 when actually it is on the East side. Taxis from Orlando International Airport cost about $60. However, you can contact Sue at Canterbury to arrange a shuttle (sharing possible):
Because other groups use the Center and we have reserved a limited number of rooms, all rooms are likely to be taken by the time of the event. REGISTER ASAP or you may not be able to attend. Refunds available, if you give us at least a two-week advance notice.
