The Recovery Community

A band of brothers

in sobriety.

Welcome to the

Recovery Community

at Enders Island

We are a recovery community for young men primarily between the ages of 18 and 30 —grounded in the spiritual principles of the Twelve Steps. At Enders Island, we have helped shape the lives of numerous young men to live healthy, fulfilling, and successful lives in long-term recovery. We take particular interest in helping college-aged students return to school and begin thriving academically. We help college graduates develop the necessary tools to pursue a professional career, and assist the vocationally-inclined in gaining and maintaining employment. Our ongoing mission is to instill in each young man the confidence and abilities he needs to be an active participant in his family, his community, and his own recovery.


The Enders Island Difference

The unique community here on Enders Island makes all the difference. Young men in our community have the opportunity to learn first and foremost by example. It is not uncommon that the person they’re having dinner with is an Archbishop, a doctor, or a cancer survivor. By providing an environment where young men can encounter individuals from all walks of life, Enders Island has a unique way of expanding the horizon of those in recovery. Members of our community come into contact with men and women who live a rich interior life: dedicated mentors, members of the church community, and a variety of visitors.

"Our goal is that this community will be the first step in a life-long journey of recovery and spiritual resurgence."
- Fr. Tom Hoar, SSE

President of St. Edmund's Retreat
