The Saint Jude Program promotes the truth about drug addiction and that is: the disease of addiction is a myth. There is no disease of alcoholism; there is no disease of dependency; and, there is no disease of addiction! This is just one of many areas where the Saint Jude Program departs from other Drug Rehab Facilities and why the Saint Jude Program is significantly more effective than the Residential Drug Rehab Programs treatment models in Nevada.
In recent surveys preformed in Nevada regarding heroin use, 470 or 4.9% of Nevada's 9,617 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. This survey was done by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. This survey was not including the 1,561 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 48,000 or 2.6% of Nevada's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 2.3% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. Mexican black tar heroin remains the most prevalent heroin available in Nevada. There has been an increase of Mexican black tar heroin within the Clark County portion of the Nevada HIDTA controlled by Mexican nationals. Mexican poly-drug trafficking organizations control the heroin trafficking in the state. These trafficking organizations continue to recruit Mexican nationals to live in the urban areas of Nevada to distribute heroin for the organization. User amounts of low purity black tar heroin remain readily available from these low-level suppliers and are most often distributed in open air markets. Mexican Brown Heroin is moderately available in Clark County and its distribution is also controlled by Mexican Nationals.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
Most people in Nevada who are looking for help with Heroin are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 989 people looking for help, 764 or 77.3% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 989 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 764 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed.
