Vegan Weight Loss

 Residential Vegan Weight Loss Program

$195 a Day

Our residential health program has been helping people with health and weight loss since 1979.  Our success is based on the fact that we do not believe in fad diets.  We focus on getting you back to health and in this process you will lose weight and keep it off.

We are physical, emotional and spiritual beings.  If you do not address your health or weight issues on all three these levels you will not be able to lose weight and keep it off. God created us in His image, Genesis 1:27.  It stands to reason that we need to reconnect in a special way to our Creator when we need help in transforming our lives, our health, our minds and our bodies.

This approach is why our team has had such success over the years.  We created an environment where God can help you to reset your life.  This is why Black Hills is known as "the place where lives change".  If you have been trying to lose weight or regain your health visit Black Hills and get the help you deserve.  If you would like to find out more or need somebody to talk to please call us.  Our ministry is a ministry of healing and we would love to help you.  Call +1 423 503 5292 any time or our office at +1 605 255 4101.

Weekend Guest Outings

What would a visit to the Black Hills of South Dakota be without a sightseeing tour of some its most historic, famous, & beautiful locations?  As a Program participant bonus, our Lifestyle Guests enjoy several scenic excursions during their stay.

Custer State Park

A herd of 1,500 bison roams freely throughout the park, often stopping traffic along the 18-mile Wildlife Loop Road. The herd is one of the largest publicly owned herds in the world. Besides bison, Custer State Park is home to wildlife such as pronghorn antelope, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, deer, elk, wild turkeys, and a band of friendly burros.

Mt. Rushmore

Mount Rushmore National Memorial is visited by nearly three million people each year that come to marvel at the majestic beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota and learn about the birth, growth, development and preservation of the country. From the history of the first inhabitants to the diversity of America today, Mount Rushmore brings visitors face to face with the rich heritage we all share.

Sylvan Lake

Sylvan Lake, known as the "crown jewel" of Custer State Park.  Created in 1881 when Theodore Reder built a dam across Sunday Gulch, it offers picnic areas, rock climbing, swimming, and hiking trails. It is also popular as a starting point for excursions to Black Elk Peak and The Needles. For Lifestyle guests, Sylvan Lake has always been a favorite afternoon outing for just getting away and a relaxing stroll.

Needles Highway

Deemed “impossible” to construct by its critics, Needles Highway—a National Scenic Byway—was completed in 1922 and includes 14 miles of sharp turns, low tunnels and impressive granite spires. The Needles lie within the 73,000 acre Custer State Park, just 30 miles south of Rapid City. 

Crazy Horse
