About an hour west of Nashville in Lobelville, Tennessee, is Still Waters, a 30-day, 12-Step immersion retreat for men. At Still Waters, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous principles of recovery are taught using AA- and NA- approved literature and fellowship, group discussions, lectures and 12-Step meetings.
In addition to learning about the disease of addiction, recovery and relapse, Still Waters emphasizes spiritual principles associated with each of the 12 Steps. Cumberland Heights Treatment Center's Pastoral Services Department provides monthly programs and a monthly two-day Family Services program for residents' family members and loved ones. This additional emphasis on spiritual principles separates the Still Waters program from others.
