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.
It’s true that people in Ohio value their independence and freedom. If you or a loved one live with Drug addiction, you know how Heroin can seem to rob you of your freedom and life choices. Choosing treatment can feel like your only options are to be a prisoner to the drug or to the treatment program. Finally, people in Ohio have another, more effective option that restores freedom without fear of relapse and without having to dedicate yourself to working a program-the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats. You can finally get beyond not only addiction but also the lifelong fear of relapse promoted by treatment.
Relapse is a serious issue and all the more so as treatment not only ignores dealing with it but instills an expectation and fear of relapse in those who go to treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to be told while in treatment to expect to be back for more treatment when they fail. In only one year in Ohio, 10,415 people sought treatment for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 8,051 people relapsed. On the one hand treatment tells you that you are the cause of relapse yet they never give you information or help to move beyond. A more effective long term solution is a non 12 Step program that not only gives you accurate information on addiction but also helps you write a solid plan for meeting the goals and dreams of your life. At Saint Jude Retreats, we start with addiction but that’s just the beginning.
