The Saint Jude Program is a social educational program and is not an Alcohol Rehabilitation Facility. The individuals who choose to attend the program are considered guests, not clients or patients. Each guest is made to feel welcome as soon as they walk through the door and the guest is immediately aware that the surroundings do not portray a rehabilitation environment.
Our program teaches that every person makes a choice as to how they handle stressful situations or setbacks in their life and that each person needs to accept responsibility for the choices that they make. For each poor decision that a person makes, such as abusing alcohol, there are consequences.
