The Saint Jude Retreats offer one of the few programs in the United States that has an independent research company verify and measure long term sobriety rates after a guest has returned home from the program. We are also the only program that publishes and provides access to these studies.
It is our mission since 1989 to provide a program based on evidence that will ultimately benefit those attending our retreats. Since the beginning, we have hired independent researchers to measure the results from program participants and the results are available to the public. We know that our unaltered program results stand on their own. This is why we are so confident that our program will help you or your loved one.
The survey consists of a single inquiry pertaining to the alcohol and drug use of the individual. The answers are gathered from the program graduate and a corroborator (usually a family member or program payee). The survey is set up to include only two categories: "using" and "not using." Those who may have successfully moderated their use must be included in the "using" category for the research purpose of the study.
Please take a moment and review the studies below. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are seeking alcohol treatment or drug treatment and you are gathering preliminary information from different websites, we recommend you ask every treatment center you talk to where and how they get their statistics.
