The St. Jude Program offered at the St. Jude Retreats is a non-12 step program that helps people permanently overcome substance use issues and the related social and emotional problems they can cause. While conventional Drug Rehabs, Alcohol Rehabs, Drug Treatment, and Alcohol Treatment Centers promote the theories surrounding the Disease of Addiction, the Saint Jude Retreats, bases its programs only on Evidence Based Solutions and more than 2 decades of research. We do not label people as Alcoholics or Addicts, nor do we promote relapse as being part of recovery, as all Addiction Treatment Facilities do. Rather, we place the power back into the individual. Addiction is a Choice. By providing the correct information, people can live a life filled with happiness and success. Is this what you are looking for? If so, give us a call. We are here to help.
Our Freedom Model provides individuals with the freedom and confidence to live their dreams without fear of "impending doom" which is the motivator used in all other drug rehab or alcohol rehab programs.
The St. Jude Program has an overall independently verified publicly published success rate of 62%. For over 20 years the St. Jude Program has been the most successful alternative to drug rehab and alcohol rehab programs in the country for helping people with drug abuse and alcohol abuse problems.
Our social-educational program, as opposed to conventional treatment methodologies, is what allows us to help our guests achieve permanent sobriety where others fail. Have you experienced alcohol rehab or drug rehab treatment that has failed? For two decades, St. Jude's has remained America's trusted alternative to drug rehab and alcohol rehab treatment centers.

The St. Jude Program is built on the fundamental idea that all people, always move in the direction of what makes them happy. If an individual is presented with a list of new options in the basic areas of life such as career, relationships, hobbies, and family life that make sense to them and will provide a pathway to a fulfilling life, that individual will naturally gravitate toward those options. That is St. Jude's - Option Presentation Methodology! It works because it is based on timeless principles, common sense and the science of physical brain change - Neuroplasticity.
A beautiful Victorian mansion that has been completely restored to its original splendor. Set in a picturesque village that is a gateway to America's most beautiful wildlife.More About the Retreat
How many times have you heard someone say, "Hey, so and so just went to drug rehab or drug treatment." Then within a few months or even a few weeks, that same person is back in rehab after a horrendous relapse episode. Unfortunately, this scenario is not unusual because drug treatment programs (including alcohol rehabilitation programs) here in America are based on coercing vulnerable people to believe they are powerless over their actions and habits.
The science of Neuroplasticity, coupled with common sense tells a different story. People can change. We do have control over our actions, habits, thoughts, behaviors and emotions. We are empowered individuals when given the proper education and information. That is exactly what St. Jude's provides - empowerment over your counterproductive habits. We teach a method that brings success because our curriculum is based on positive reinforcement, building positive relationships, and demonstrating options that are life changing to our guests.
We are not alone in our assertion that substance usage habits are not diseases. Please take a few minutes to understand what research is now telling us about the ineffectiveness of alcohol rehab, alcohol treatment, drug rehab, etc.
First it is important to understand that the disease theory is just that - a theory. Additionally, it is important to understand that this theory is only accepted as fact by the alcohol rehab, alcohol rehabilitation, and the alcohol and drug treatment industry here in the United States. The rest of the world considers the disease theory of addiction pure bunk.
