Saint Jude Retreats is pleased to announce that we will soon launch a website information portal for family members of those participating in our drug and alcohol social education program. Rather than sending the family a booklet of information in the mail as we do now, this information and more will soon be available online through an invitation-only secure website.

Most people now prefer to receive information electronically, and creating a website portal online makes this possible. Not only is this a much faster and more efficient way of communicating, it will help to reduce the costs of printing and mailing and it is environmentally-friendly. Saint Jude’s Corner will be accessible by family members for 60 days, giving loved ones a chance to learn more about what we do and how to contact the center. It will explain our philosophy, how we help people with drug and alcohol problems, and why we are not an alcohol addiction treatment facility or a drug rehab program. For those who are not online or are more comfortable with printed materials, they will still be available at a reduced rate.

Our new web portal will also contain informative video clips, tips on how to help family members when they return and offer straightforward educational and extracurricular information.

We plan to launch Saint Jude’s Corner in mid-December, and will provide the necessary information to the families of participants in the program at that time.
