Saint Luke Institute offers a range of counseling and other treatment services for Catholic clergy and men and women religious, as well as lay people in the Baltimore and Washington, DC metropolitan areas.

Holistic Approach to Healing

We see each individual as a whole person, and take a holistic approach to healing that integrates his or her psychological, spiritual and physical wellness. Treatment is tailored to each client's situation.

Our relationships with our clients and the diocese or religious congregation who entrusts their priest or religious to our care are important to us. Recognizing the importance of local support for those on the path to recovery, our staff seeks to keep leadership informed throughout treatment while also respecting client confidentiality.

Residential Programs

  • Residential Program for Men
  • Talitha-Life Program for Women Religious
  • Spirituality Program (integrated into residential treatment)

Ongoing Support

Two programs support the continued healing of clergy and religious who have completed the residential program to reinforce the treatment gains and provide transitional support:

  • Halfway House (transitional housing)
  • Continuing Care¬†

Outpatient Counseling 
Caritas Counseling is a therapy resource for clergy, religious and lay Catholics in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland metropolitan areas. We offer individual and group therapy at our two offices.

In addition, the Saint Luke Center in Louisville, Kentucky, provides outpatient therapy to clergy and religious in that region.
