Tom Varden, Dennis Chagnon, Chris Jacob, and Don DelNegro celebrate their victory at this year’s St. Joseph’s Golf Tournament with the awarding of the St. Joseph’s Cup. The Cup represents a very special tribute to the winning team who are selected not just for their athletic skill, but also for their sportsmanship, fellowship, and commitment to doing their personal best – all qualities foundational to sustained recovery.
Nearly 40 St. Joseph’s staff, Inpatient and Veteran
residents contributed to making the dream of becoming
an IronMan possible for well over 2,000 competitors
at this year’s Lake Placid IronMan.
Please join us for the Fellowship’s 45th Annual Reunion on Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 8, 2017!

The beauty and spiritual setting of St. Joseph’s has also been noted for contributing to our residents’ healing from addiction.
In February of 1971, Fr. Carmen Giuliano, S.A. received the assignment from the Friars of the Atonement of creating St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation Center in Saranac Lake, “To serve God by promoting healing and recovery for all persons who suffer from the disease of alcoholism and chemical dependency.”

When a Rose Hill resident we’ll call William completed the program, a number of obstacles to his recovery remained in his life which caused him to relapse. He quickly reached out to us, however, and returned to a safe environment to continue his recovery; actions that are both a credit to his maturity and to his understanding of the Rose Hill process.
With just a couple of weeks until April, the North Country experienced its largest snowfall in well over 25 years. Nearby Lake Placid reported 42 inches, Tupper Lake came in at nearly three feet, and St. Joseph’s campus witnessed almost 40 inches!
