Why do I have to pay?

A common misconception regarding recovery-based conferences, conventions, retreats & events is that they are regular recovery-based meetings.

While parts of this retreat have a similar format to regular meetings, the Jersey Shore Big Book Retreat is not a recovery-based meeting.

  • Jersey Shore Big Book Retreat is a special recovery-based event.
  • Jersey Shore Big Book Retreat is self-supporting; no contributions from regular meetings are used to pay for this event.
  • Expenses such as retreat house fees, special foods, travel and lodging for the speakers, materials, and any additional workers are paid through our registration fees.
