In the Saint Jude Program we teach our guests the need to take responsibility for all their actions, rather than making excuses for poor behavior and choices. Saint Jude Retreats knows that ownership of the problem is the cornerstone to rebuilding their lives. A disease by its very nature is out of a person's control. This is simply not the case with substance abuse. Substance abusers make the choice to abuse heroin. Choice is a behavior, not a disease--if you would like more information, call our friendly family consultants now.
