Over the years at the Saint Jude Retreat's I have heard how many of our guests, almost half of them, come to our program in search of an alternative to Alcohol Abuse Rehab. I always ask them what the difference between our program and the programs they attended in the pasts are. The answer is always the same, 'at least here I am told, it is up to me to change'. So if you are seeking help because of an Alcohol Addiction Problem and wonder what these people see so different at our place from all the other Alcohol Rehab Programs I have been looking at, this information will help you.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Montana for the year 2004 there were 31,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Florida, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 70,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.38% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
Are you or a loved one dealing with Alcohol addiction? Chances are you think the only approach is treatment and a lifetime of recovery with relapses along the way. You don’t have to spend your life waiting for the next relapse or spending time and money on another treatment center. Research shows treatment doesn’t work for Alcohol addiction. You can find a better answer and move beyond Alcohol addiction forever.
If you live in Montana, you already know the rates of Alcohol addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
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 Montana alone, 1,627 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 913 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.
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 Montana 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.
You have taken the time to seek help because of your "addiction" to Alcohol. You might be looking at rehab centers or treatment centers in Montana and wonder what the best option for you is. 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. When you can call a Alcohol treatment center you will most likely talk to a caring person, but with the wrong message, being that addiction is a disease. Remember that no matter what you decide... you can change
