Saint Jude's has been challenging treatment programs in Kansas and around the world for over twenty years, exposing their questionable methods, and harmful rhetoric. At Saint Jude's you will not hear our staff talk about a "cure," because you or your loved one is not diseased or sick or mentally ill. St. Jude's will not tell you to "recover" because there is nothing to "recover" from. We will however, teach you how to empower yourself to levels you never thought possible. We will help you to learn methods of self examination and improve life and social skills.
In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 69 or 0.45% of Kansas' 15,495 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 4,151 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 52,000 or 2.35% of Kansas' citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Although Mexican black tar heroin continues to be the most readily available type of heroin, there is now a significant presence of white heroin in the Kansas area and it is said to be "easily available." Black tar heroin is typically sold in small plastic baggies or in gelatin capsules (known locally as buttons) for $10. Eight to ten capsules weigh a gram and the Mexican heroin is primarily brought into the area from California, Arizona, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. While prices for white heroin are said to be dropping to record lows, the purity is higher than normal, with common levels of 35% - 45%. This rise in purity is reflected in the Domestic Monitor Program (DMP), which includes all types of heroin.
Are you or a loved one dealing with Heroin addiction? Chances are you think the only approach is treatment and a lifetime of recovery with relapses along the way. You don’t have to spend your life waiting for the next relapse or spending time and money on another treatment center. Research shows treatment doesn’t work for Heroin addiction. You can find a better answer and move beyond Drug addiction forever.
If you live in Kansas, you already know the rates of Heroin addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
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 Kansas alone, 85 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 66 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.
If treatment doesn’t work and relapse is so prevalent, how can anyone hope to end Heroin addiction?
