Nueva Vida is a movement within the Archdiocese of Miami that believes those who suffer from the disease of addiction and codependency can find healing through the love of God. We bring families together to share, and thereby bring both sides of addiction together, and help the families understand the root of the disease.

Through meetings and retreats, you will hear others share their experiences. You can also get answers to questions on how to deal with the disease, and restore your family. Nueva Vida English hosts one-day and weekend retreats that focus on every aspect of addiction and codependency.

Medical and psychological professionals are invited to share their expertise on the effects of the disease. Nueva Vida offers spiritual direction and companionship. This is the process of accompanying people on a spiritual journey with the goal of growing closer to God (or the sacred, the holy, or a higher power).
