Alcohol rehabilitation programs in Michigan utilize different approaches when treating their patients. Some of these programs use counseling sessions designed to help their patients cope with life. Some use medical treatment. Most others employ the 12-step program or an off shoot of such. People seeking inpatient alcohol rehab programs are often pushed into one-size-fits-all, 12-step, diseased-based facilities. Belief in the powerless, diseased state is the single greatest reason conventional inpatient alcohol rehabilitation programs do not achieve high or even moderate success rates. 12-step based alcohol rehabs, along with psychological and medical treatment for alcohol are actually harmful.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Michigan for the year 2004 there were 268,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Michigan, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 597,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 3.44% of the total population with an Alcohol abuse problem in the United States.
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?
If you’re looking for Alcohol addiction treatment in Michigan, you are probably aware of the growing problem. Most people choosing a traditional treatment path will follow the cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime.
Relapse doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Alcohol again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Alcohol at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In Michigan, of 13,223 admissions for Alcohol, 56.1% or 7,418 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction! Ending addiction is about having accurate information and a plan to live your life beyond the program-exactly what the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats does.
