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.
Are you or a loved one dealing with Heroin addiction? Chances are you think the only approach is treatment and a lifetime of recovery with relapses along the way. You don’t have to spend your life waiting for the next relapse or spending time and money on another treatment center. Research shows treatment doesn’t work for Heroin addiction. You can find a better answer and move beyond Drug addiction forever.
Finding the right help for Heroin addiction in Nevada 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.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Nevada alone, 989 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 764 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
