If you have been told you are diseased because you are currently using heroin call Saint Jude Retreats now. Over the last 80 years the treatment industry, which includes most Drug Rehab Facilities in the United States have been searching for this disease, searching for the gene of addiction, with absolutely no success at all. They have also concluded that addiction is a brain disease, and accordingly needs to be treated as such. Saint Jude Retreats is diligent about reassuring Georgia residents that addictions are not real.
Studies in Georgia have shown that 175,000 or 2.5% of Georgia's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. In other studies preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 566 or 1.8% of Georgia's 31,233 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. There were also studies that show 2.4% of high school students had used heroin at some point in their lives. Heroin availability remains stable throughout Atlanta. Seizures of street level amounts of heroin attest to the pervasiveness and the availability of the drug. Although heroin trafficking at times appears relatively low and stable throughout most of Georgia, there are regions where heroin abuse appears to be climbing. The sources of supply reportedly are located in Chicago, New York, and at the southwest border. The Atlanta High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area report indicates more Hispanic involvement in heroin trafficking. Local law enforcement agencies in some outlying metro Atlanta counties indicate that heroin is becoming an increasing problem for their jurisdictions.
Are you or a loved one searching for treatment for Heroin addiction? Stop! Treatment doesn’t work for Drug addiction. In fact the number of people admitted for Heroin treatment were 1,192 in Georgia and keep climbing every year.
People in Georgia know that addiction to Heroin 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.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Georgia of the 1,192 people who sought treatment for Heroin, 77.3% or 921 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
Relapse can seem scary if you don’t know what to do next. Instead of returning to treatment that didn’t work before, many people in Georgia look to Saint Jude Retreats for help with Heroin addiction. The reason is clear. With over 27 years of research and experience, Saint Jude Retreats offers a proven effective completely non 12 Step alternative to treatment and the fear of relapse.
