Chemical dependency is an American cultural term that implies powerlessness. Unfortunately, if an individual believes they are chemically dependent then that belief becomes their reality - they literally believe they are at the mercy of a substance. Yet, millions who would be classified as having chemical dependency quit their alcohol and drug habits without any "treatment" whatsoever. How can this be?
The answer is this: chemical dependency is a belief system, not a fact. The idea that people lose their ability to make decisions in regards to drug intake is absurd and not backed up by the research. This is great news to those who want to change, but bad news to those who want an excuse to continue their high intake of drugs and alcohol.

"Chemical dependency" is caused by a person's belief in their own learned helplessness. Drugs such as heroin, crack cocaine, methamphetamines, prescription drugs, marijuana, LSD, hallucinogens, alcohol and other drugs are all seen in Western culture as dependency causing substances. Yet, people stop using them without treatment by the millions every year.
Substance usage is not a disease. The classic terms, alcoholism and drug addiction, are choices! Successfully quitting forever occurs from learning how to be happy instead of living in the state or condition of trusting or relying on drugs and alcohol for support, relief or help. Social Education and responsibility for one's actions and are the pathways to freedom from chemical dependency. This is what St. Jude's has provided for thousands over the last two decades.
