Arrive at Uchee Pines, meet the staff, get settled into your room, and begin an experience that can change your life. If you are coming as a lifestyle guest, you will also meet your Lifestyle Counselor who will be with you throughout your program toward health recovery and learning how to continue your lifestyle change once you return home. You will make new friends who will eat with you, sing with you, work with you, and pray with you. You will wonder why you didn't come sooner; you will be thankful you came at last.

Level 2 guests are those coming because they sense a need for a change, but as yet have developed no serious health problems. They are encouraged to participate in this program now, before sickness strikes.

We routinely work with a wide variety of diseases that are common to our society. While God’s methods are very effective in combating disease, they are also effective in preventing disease. Come to Uchee Pines. You’ll never be the same again.

We are a team of Seventh-day Adventist Christian laypersons and physicians specializing in natural methods of healing for the uplifting of humanity. Our desire is that each person coming to Uchee Pines may have total health: health of body, soul, and mind. We also want our Guests to go home and teach others the good things God has done for them here.

Due to limited space, please schedule your visit to Uchee Pines as early as possible, and contact us for information about the availability of specific dates.

Check in time: 3:00 – 5:30 pm. Supper is served at 6pm followed by a welcome meeting at 7 pm.

Check out time:
8:00 – 11:00 am on Departure day, preceded by Breakfast served at 7 am.
