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.
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
