Distinct from the Residential Treatment Program is the Shalom Center Sabbatical Program, a personal growth program tailored
to individual needs and offered in
a warm and caring environment.     

The Sabbatical Program offers an individualized approach with a focus on the spiritual, psychological, relational, ministerial, and physical dimensions of life. The secluded grounds of Shalom Center offer
an opportunity to interweave the dimensions of personhood and assist in moving forward on life’s spiritual and human journey.     

The natural beauty of Shalom Center’s grounds allows one to walk, meditate, and pray.  The friendly and welcoming staff in all departments are willing and able to assist the process of renewal. The cuisine in our dining room offers a nutritious and balanced diet. Our indoor swimming pool, exercise room, jacuzzi, relaxation therapy, and massage therapy offer effective means to restore one’s energies
and revitalize the body.     

While one relaxes, reflects, and renews, the Sabbatical Program offers an opportunity to process previous life experience and focus
on future goals and directions. The program allows one to decrease the pressures of daily stressors and address personal issues in a safe
and peaceful environment. Shalom Center offers the comforts of home in new residential units without the stress of daily interruptions and intrusions. The Sabbatical Program allows participants to be as busy or casual as desired with a full menu
of options from which to choose desired activities.

“Let anyone who believes in me come and drink!

As scripture says, “From his heart shall flow streams of living water.”

— John 7:38


Our beautiful chapel of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in the center of our campus allows participants to celebrate the Eucharist daily each morning and to end the day with Evening Prayer in a faith community setting. The chapel also allows a quite place for individual prayer and adoration. Spiritual direction, individual counseling, personal reflection, expressive art therapy also offer means for growth and renewal.
