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.
