Theocharis Recovery House Foundation invites recovering addicts to embark on a transformative journey to Sunny Cyprus for a Bridge to shore Holiday Vacation. This unique and empowering experience is led by Mike D from Los Angeles, offering individuals the opportunity to escape to a tranquil and peaceful setting in rural Cyprus.

Participants can look forward to daily workshops and evening shares, providing a safe space for personal growth and healing. The retreat also allows for plenty of relaxation time, whether lounging on the beach, taking a dip in the pool, or simply soaking up the Mediterranean sun.

One of the highlights of the Bridge To Shore Holiday Vacation is the focus on wellness and nutrition. The week-long experience features a Mediterranean-inspired menu designed to nourish both body and soul, supporting the journey of recovery. From fresh fruits and vegetables to local specialties, every meal is crafted with health in mind.

What sets this holiday vacation apart is its all-inclusive nature. Participants can enjoy peace of mind knowing that accommodation, shared car transportation, meals, and even return flights from Europe are all included in the package. This allows for a worry-free experience, where individuals can fully immerse themselves in the healing process without any added stress or distractions.

The Bridge To Shore Holiday Vacation is not just a getaway; it is a bridge to a new beginning. It offers a supportive environment for individuals to connect, heal, and grow, guided by the expertise of Mike D and the serene backdrop of Cyprus. Whether seeking a fresh start or simply looking to recharge and rejuvenate, this holiday vacation provides a transformative experience that can set the stage for lasting change and personal growth.
