Please join us for a weekend of renewed hope and recovery at the beautiful Marie Joseph Center in Biddeford Pool, Maine. Adjacent to an Audubon sanctuary, the center is located on a four-mile expanse of ocean beach, lending itself to quiet reflection and inspiration.

If you have a desire to stop eating compulsively and would like a deeper spiritual connection, you are welcome to join us for this very special weekend.

Our retreat will focus on the 3 Legs of Recovery; Emotional, Spiritual and Physical.

This year’s retreat will have a balance of speaker presentation, breakout groups, time for personal reflection and fellowship.


The majority of rooms are doubles. Roommate requests may be made in advance or we will assign a roommate for you. There are a limited number of single rooms to be assigned based on medical needs. Bathrooms are shared facilities and are centrally located.

Lodging is limited to rooms for retreat participants only.


Meals include breakfast, lunch, and dinner Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

No meal will be provided Friday night. We suggest packing a meal or stopping along the way.
