St. Jude's exists to help people with alcohol and drug problems, but we are not an alcohol rehab, nor do we call ourselves one. In America, "rehab" conjures up images of group therapy, 12 step meetings, and sulking "addicts" and "alcoholics" struggling with their demons. This IS NOT an accurate picture of St. Jude's. The concept of alcohol rehab is based on the idea that people are sick, dependent, weak, and in need of emotional "treatment." St. Jude's curriculum is based on the facts that people are inherently not sick, not dependent, strong, and in need of options to better make positive productive choices.
Therefore, the term rehab is defined as a program that benefits from the individual's beliefs in their weaknesses, their powerlessness, their unhappiness, their inability to cope, and that they have an incurable disease. St. Jude's carries the opposite view, so therefore we could never be defined as an alcohol rehab. We do not treat individuals because there is no disease to treat. The disease concept has been debunked for over 70 years! We do not rehabilitate anyone, because St. Jude's is not based on controlling sick patients, but rather empowering strong willed, independent, individuals who are temporarily in a state of confusion, misinformation and who live unknowing of their unlimited positive options in life.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of North Dakota for the year 2004 there were 20,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of North Dakota, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 53,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.27% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
Is Alcohol addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Alcohol addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
Most people in North Dakota 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 847 people looking for help, 475 or 56.1% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
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 North Dakota alone, 847 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 475 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.
