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 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.
Most people in South 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 5,436 people looking for help, 3,050 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 South Dakota alone, 5,436 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 3,050 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.
While it’s clear that treatment doesn’t work from research and statistics, an effective solution is available.
