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.
Finding help for Heroin addiction can seem overwhelming. Especially if you or a loved one has been to treatment before. You may have been told you will have to live in a cycle of relapse and recovery for the rest of your life. That’s simply not true! There is a solution to the treatment cycle-the non 12 Step solution.
People in Louisiana want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Heroin. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Louisiana.
Relapse doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Heroin again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Heroin at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In Louisiana, of 1,749 admissions for Heroin, 77.3% or 1,352 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction! Ending addiction is about having accurate information and a plan to live your life beyond the program-exactly what the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats does.
