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.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Illinois for the year 2004 there were 391,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Illinois, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 887,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 4.866% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.

People in Illinois want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Alcohol addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Alcohol.

That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Illinois.
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.
