First and foremost the Saint Jude Retreats are an alternative to the conventional Alcohol Rehab center that means we do not teach the disease concept of addiction, we do not tell our guests they should feel guilty for their problems, and most importantly we do not tell people they will be in recovery for the rest of their lives.
Principles of Neuroplasticity suggest that the brain is not a fixed organ, but it evolves and changes based on thoughts and positive motivation. Here lies the simple truth about addiction. People do not want to deal with withdrawals symptoms, people in essence do not want to feel bad or sick. Drinking, and or drugging alleviate a surrounding problem, which the individual might be exposed to. That could be lost of a job, problems at work, and problems at the house hold, and unhappiness with life in general, etc...
By feeding negative thoughts to your brain, your behaviors, and your life becomes a constant negative and unhappy place to be at.
Did You Know?
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of West Virginia for the year 2004 there were 48,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of West Virginia , surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 106,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.609% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
Finding help for Alcohol addiction can seem overwhelming. Especially if you or a loved one has been to treatment before. You may have been told you will have to live in a cycle of relapse and recovery for the rest of your life. That’s simply not true! There is a solution to the treatment cycle-the non 12 Step solution.
People in West Virginia know that addiction to Alcohol keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In West Virginia alone, of the 864 people seeking help for Alcohol, 56.1% or 485 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
