At Saint Jude Retreats our focus is to make you feel comfortable to talk about anything with our staff. The Saint Jude Program does not follow the disease concept of addiction, we do not tell you that relapse is part of recovery, and we will never tell you that in order to become sober you need to give yourself to a higher power. We, on the other hand, teach the truth about addiction; addiction is a choice you make and it is your choice to stop using or drugging. Now you might be asking yourself, 'well this is a bold statement', however it is within you as a woman/man of will, to do whatever in life you set yourself to do. In the science of Neuroplasticity numerous studies prove that our brain is a plastic organ that continues to evolve and change even after significant damage is done.
Indiana statistics for 2005 show that an estimated 403,000 citizens had an alcohol abuse or dependency condition, and an estimated 148,000 residents were addicted to drugs. Although these numbers seem alarmingly high, what is of more concern is that an estimated 385,000 did not receive alcohol rehabilitation and that 133,000 did not receive needed drug rehabilitation.
The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Alcohol. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Alcohol addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Alcohol be going down?
When you live in Indiana, finding the right Alcohol addiction treatment can seem difficult. You know you want a program that works and will last. You know you don’t want to end up in a cycle of relapse and return.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Indiana of the 4,195 people who sought treatment for Alcohol, 56.1% or 2,353 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
When treatment doesn’t work, a non 12 Step solution is an excellent and effective alternative. Saint Jude has been offering a completely non 12 Step solution to people from Indiana for over 27 years with proven results. Our non 12 Step approach focuses on freedom of choice, personal responsibility, self confidence, empowerment, and helping you build a concrete plan for pursuing real fulfillment in life. If you or a loved one is ready to stop Alcohol addiction and break free of the cycle of relapse for good, call Saint Jude Retreats.

Even if you do not choose St Jude's as your program, at least let us tell you one thing. You and only you can make change possible. You are not diseased, and your current circumstances do not need to dictate the course of your life from this moment forward.
