Research has found that the 12-step model actually decreases a person's chance of leading a sober and drug free life. No matter what type of substance you are currently using we have the solution for you. The Saint Jude Retreat Houses offer a positive, choice-based program that helps people overcome their substance use issues, forever. The Saint Jude Program is based solely on research and offers the only Freedom Model approach. Delaware heorin use is high and the need for an excellent alternative to drug rehab is evident through the studies found below.
Surveys done in Delaware have revealed, 2,234 of Delaware's 8,480 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. These surverys were preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). Studies also show that 18,000 or 2.63% of Delaware's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. There were also studies that show 3.8% of high school males had used heroin at some point in their lives. Heroin is available primarily in northern Delaware, as distributors relocate from source cities (Philadelphia and New York) to Wilmington in order to escape the attention of law enforcement, attract new customers, and sell to existing customers from surrounding areas, including southeastern Pennsylvania and Maryland. Although Philadelphia is the primary source for heroin distributors and users in Delaware, reports indicate that larger quantities of heroin were also available and distributed in Wilmington. The increasing availability of cheaper, higher purity heroin over the last few years has caused concern in Delaware over a growing heroin use problem that reaches all socioeconomic backgrounds. Heroin is popular among teens and young adults, who consume heroin either by itself or in combination with cocaine or alcohol, a combination that typically leads to overdose deaths. In Delaware, the perception of heroin remaining a problem only in the region's major metropolitan areas is no longer accurate.
Finding help for Heroin 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 Delaware want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Heroin. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Delaware.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Delaware alone, 3,388 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 2,619 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
While it’s clear that treatment doesn’t work from research and statistics, an effective solution is available.
