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.
Are you or a loved one searching for treatment for Alcohol addiction? Stop! Treatment doesn’t work for Alcohol addiction. In fact the number of people admitted for Alcohol treatment were 3,040 in Maine and keep climbing every year.
Most people in Maine who are looking for help with Alcohol are hoping to find a permanent solution to Alcohol addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 3,040 people looking for help, 1,705 or 56.1% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Relapse is a problem because treatment doesn’t work! Going back to treatment that didn’t work before is likely to have the same result of not ending addiction. Even worse, people who go to treatment over and over may actually binge more or even try combinations that can prove lethal. In 2014, 3,040 sought treatment. 56.1% or 1,705 relapsed after treatment for Alcohol. So if the answer isn’t treatment—what does work?
