As with all life changing choices that an individual must make during their lifetime, choosing the best way to get help is a difficult process that requires times, research, and thought. The simple fact that every person is different and has a different set of views, ideas, and beliefs means that there is not any one magic program that will work for everybody. However the overall success of a program can and should greatly influence the decision of whether to participate in a program or if the program is just a bottle of snake oil.
An alcohol rehab that uses the freedom model, such as the St Jude Retreats, 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, resulting in a lower number of programs and alcohol rehab facilities that offer a program which use this approach.

Remember that no matter what you decide... you can change
