Saint Jude Retreats differ from other alcohol rehabs in Illinois by using the freedom model, which is a completely different approach, but an approach that has been proven to work. Our brain evolves based on taught processes, thus negative thought such as 'I have a disease', 'I fear I might relapse', and/or 'it is not up to me to get better' have consequences that will trigger you to do just that. But imagine for a minute you were taught all positive, that someone will be there helping you to set goals, that someone will be there to provide you with those tools needed to get back the most important thing in us humans; freedom and happiness.

Is Alcohol addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Alcohol addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
Living in Illinois you know the available options for help with Alcohol are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Alcohol addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in Illinois do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Illinois alone, 5,030 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 2,822 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
