So what is a realistic solution to a drinking problem? Realistic Solutions are based on choice. At Saint Jude Retreats we teach a choice-based program model, which simply means it was your choice to begin drinking and it must be your choice to stop. Saint Jude's is not like other Alcohol Rehabs in Missouri we are in fact an alternative to these other programs.
If you choose to change your life today and enroll in Saint Jude Retreats you will have recoup control of your life. Those who enroll themselves in a choice based alcohol rehabilitation program, such as Saint Jude's are not being treated. They are being educated. They are no longer a patient. They are a guest. The purpose of a choice based inpatient alcohol rehabilitation program is to empower one to think in a confident and mature fashion. It teaches how to have the courage to make positive choices when in the past the path that follows short term relief was taken ultimately leading to emptiness and dissatisfaction in one's life. Choice becomes power.
