Can I sign myself up for care at Saint Luke Institute?
Clients typically are referred by their (arch)diocese or religious community. If you feel you would benefit from our programs, we encourage you to talk with your superior or vicar or to call us at 301-445-7970.
Who goes to Saint Luke Institute?
We serve Catholic clergy, seminarians and men and women religious. Our SLIconnect education and Caritas Counseling Center outpatient programs are open to clergy, religious and lay people of all faiths.
What issues do you treat?
Individuals come to us for many reasons, and often have a dual diagnosis. Challenges include addictions, depression and other mood disorders, stress, burnout, boundaries, trauma and more.
Why is continuing care important?
Recovery can take up to five years, with the highest rate of relapse occurring during the first year after treatment. Our Continuing Care Program provides structured support to assist a person throughout this fragile time period. Near the completion of the Intensive Outpatient Program, a client is assigned a Continuing Care Liaison who works with him or her and his/her superior and residential care team to facilitate a successful transition back to “regular” life through the first five years of recovery.
