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.
If you or a loved one are living with Heroin addiction, you already know you’re not alone. Searching for the right solution can be difficult and discouraging. So many people seem to need help and often they return again and again to treatment. If treatment works, why are people getting worse instead of better? The answer is treatment doesn’t work but luckily there is a truly effective way to end addiction- Non 12 Step.
Finding the right help for Heroin addiction in Louisiana can be done. Treatment isn’t the answer with its high rates of relapse. In addition, treatment teaches you to live a life devoted to preventing addiction instead of leaving it behind you. It’s impossible to end addiction when you spend your time thinking how to make your life smaller to avoid it. You are, in essence, putting the addiction at the center of your life and in charge of what you do and don’t do. Leaving Heroin in charge of your life is a recipe for relapse.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In Louisiana alone, of the 1,749 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 1,352 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
Relapse can seem scary if you don’t know what to do next.
