Family members and loved ones often times feel overwhelmed when someone they love has an alcohol problem and feel they have no one to turn to. An Alcohol Rehab Program is usually the first course of action that comes to mind as a means to "rehabilitate" their loved one.
Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers use a 12 step approach and instill in the person who is being "rehabilitated" that they have an illness or a disease, which is not the case. Alcohol abuse is a choice made by the individual solely by their own volition. Alcohol Rehabilitation Programs offer group sessions and counseling and inform individuals that they will never get rid of their addiction but that by having a group support system, they can keep their addiction under control.
The St. Jude Program is not your typical alcohol rehab center. We are based solely on research, with 20 years to back that up. We are constantly changing our program to what works best to help your loved one overcome substance use.
Did You Know?
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of South Dakota for the year 2004 there were 29,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of South Dakota, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 56,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.29% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
Are you or a loved one searching for treatment for Alcohol addiction? Stop! Treatment doesn’t work for Alcohol addiction. In fact the number of people admitted for Alcohol treatment were 5,436 in South Dakota and keep climbing every year.
Living in South Dakota you know the available options for help with Alcohol are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Alcohol addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in South Dakota do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
Relapse doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Alcohol again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Alcohol at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In South Dakota, of 5,436 admissions for Alcohol, 56.1% or 3,050 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction! Ending addiction is about having accurate information and a plan to live your life beyond the program-exactly what the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats does.
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 South Dakota for over 27 years with proven results.
