The word is also used of an institution or home where insane persons or habitual inebriates may be treated.
For the law relating to "licensed retreats" for inebriates, see Inebriety, Law Of.
Private institutions for the care of the insane, idiots, feeble-minded and inebriates may be established, but must be licensed and regulated by the state board and become legally a part of the system of public charities.
