In Louisiana, there are multiple Drug Rehab centers to choose from--make sure the one you enter is the right one for you. Make sure that the rehab you select does not tell you, that you may need additional meetings after you graduate their program. Saint Jude's is a true, non 12-step program and do not inform our guests they will need to continue rehab after they leave us. St. Jude's teaches choice and continuing to be involved in support meetings is not an effective part of your journey.
Heroin is considered a low drug threat in most of Louisiana, except in New Orleans, primarily due to availability and cost. Heroin abuse in Louisiana, especially New Orleans, is historically cyclical. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration's Domestic Monitoring Program, South American heroin is the most common type available. Heroin is sold at the street level in bags or papers in one-half gram quantities. The average purity level for New Orleans from February to August 2005 was 33.04 percent. There was one seizure in the New Orleans area in June 2005 with a purity level of 75.8 percent. The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) discovered through surveys that 254 or 1% of Louisiana's 24,608 Drug and Alcohol abusers admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 6,165 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 113,000 or 3.12% of Louisiana's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year.
Many Louisiana 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.
