Saint Jude Retreats is an alternative to 12-step and the disease model. Alcohol Rehab Programs across Main have different philosophies regarding alcoholism. The main belief is that alcoholism is a disease. These Programs tell individuals who attends 12 step Alcohol Rehabs that they are sick with a disease when in fact there is no such thing as alcoholism, therefore there is no disease. It has been proven that addiction is not a disease. There is absolutely no scientific evidence to support the disease theory. The fact that people are being told they have a disease gives people something else to blame for their behaviors and allows them not to take responsibility for their choices.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Maine for the year 2004 there were 39,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Maine, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 81,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.48% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
Finding help for Alcohol addiction can seem overwhelming. Especially if you or a loved one has been to treatment before. You may have been told you will have to live in a cycle of relapse and recovery for the rest of your life. That’s simply not true! There is a solution to the treatment cycle-the non 12 Step solution.
When you live in Maine, 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.
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 Maine alone, 3,040 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 1,705 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.
While it’s clear that treatment doesn’t work from research and statistics, an effective solution is available. For over 27 years, Saint Jude Retreats has been providing an evidence based, effective completely non 12 Step approach to end addiction for people from Maine and all over the nation.
