The thing about being a taxpayer is that it essentially makes you an involuntary investor in the country. Our investment dollars are our taxes… our brokers are our legislators… but the fact remains we invest in the country every day. Some of that money goes to our national health in the form of dollars spent on studying diseases. These are, of course, worthwhile investments, and the effects of the research shows that… but what about our research done to cure the “disease” of addiction. How is that going? And what do the results teach us?
About The Author
After completing a court mandated drug and alcohol treatment program in 1989, Mark Scheeren realized the “treatment” he received left him even more depressed and anxious than when he began his “treatment.” A chance meeting with researcher Jerry Brown started a collaborative research effort spanning over three decades that lead to the development of the first residential non-12 step method, The Saint Jude Retreats with Mark serving as its first graduate and now as Research Fellow and Chairman. Together Jerry, Mark and their research team continuously test and refine the methods. Today that evolution has produced the revolutionary text, The Freedom Model for Addictions, Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap as well as the residential model entitled The Freedom Model System offered only at the Saint Jude Retreats or through Private Instruction via video classes online.
