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.
When people look for help with Heroin addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Heroin in 2014 were at 85 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
It’s true that people in Kansas value their independence and freedom. If you or a loved one live with Drug addiction, you know how Heroin can seem to rob you of your freedom and life choices. Choosing treatment can feel like your only options are to be a prisoner to the drug or to the treatment program. Finally, people in Kansas have another, more effective option that restores freedom without fear of relapse and without having to dedicate yourself to working a program-the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats. You can finally get beyond not only addiction but also the lifelong fear of relapse promoted by treatment.
What isn’t counted in the rates of Heroin addiction are how many of these admissions are people who relapse and return to treatment. Unfortunately, most people choosing traditional treatment will follow a cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime. Relapse rates for Heroin addiction are 77.3% or 66 real people who are on the treatment treadmill. Research shows clearly that treatment doesn’t work. If treatment doesn’t work, what can you or a loved one do to end the cycle of relapse for Drug addiction?
When you know that treatment doesn’t work, what effective option is there? Saint Jude Retreats has been helping people from all over the US, including in Kansas, to move past Heroin addiction and live a life free of fears of relapse. Our completely non 12 Step program provides you with decades of addiction science and research so you can finally put the myths of addiction, recovery, and relapse to rest. Our cognitive behavioral program will help you feel empowered to change the self limiting habits and beliefs that no longer work for you and exchange them for healthier options for a happier life.

Many Kansas Heroin treatment centers will make you believe that the only solution to your problems is in fact Heroin treatment. This is not true. People overcome Heroin every day without treatment and without addiction professionals dictating how their lives should be lived.
At Saint Jude's We have developed a program that is based on more than two decades of research. This research proves that people have the inner ability to change their thinking and actions accordingly... this means that people can, just with the power of choice, change their behaviors permanently.
