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.
