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.
Thinking there is no way out of relapse for Heroin? Seeking another treatment program is likely to give you or a loved one the same or worse results. Research proves treatment doesn’t work. You can move beyond Drug addiction with a non 12 Step approach that offers a permanent solution.
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.
Relapse is used by treatment to get people to come back over and over again. Research has shown that treatment doesn’t work. In fact, 66 or 77.3% people relapse every year with Heroin addiction. Traditional treatment even teaches that everyone is on an endless cycle of relapse and recovery to justify the rounds of treatment they offer. If you or a loved one is ready to change and live their life, it’s time to get off the treatment treadmill.
