An alcohol rehab center that uses the 12 step approach is based on the premises that there is something wrong with the individual and they have a "disease" . These places inform their guests that they will need to be "treated" for the rest of their lives, which includes going to meetings and sometimes medicating them.
An alcohol rehab that use the freedom model uses a very different approach, based on research, which shows the individuals how it was a choice they made to start abusing alcohol and how it must be a choice by them to stop as well. This approach is a relatively new idea and The Saint Jude Retreats is the only program in the United States to use this approach and have helped thousands of people overcoming substance use.
