Freedom Model Retreats differ from other alcohol rehabs in Illinois by using the freedom model, which is a completely different approach, but an approach that has been proven to work. Our brain evolves based on taught processes, thus negative thought such as 'I have a disease', 'I fear I might relapse', and/or 'it is not up to me to get better' have consequences that will trigger you to do just that. But imagine for a minute you were taught all positive, that someone will be there helping you to set goals, that someone will be there to provide you with those tools needed to get back the most important thing in us humans; freedom and happiness.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Illinois for the year 2004 there were 391,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Illinois, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 887,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 4.866% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Alcohol. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Alcohol addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Alcohol be going down?
Most people in Illinois who are looking for help with Alcohol are hoping to find a permanent solution to Alcohol addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 5,030 people looking for help, 2,822 or 56.1% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Alcohol. Of those, 5,030 people admitted for treatment, 56.1% or 2,822 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed. For over 27 years, people in Illinois seeking help with Alcohol are turning to Freedom Model Retreats’ non 12 Step as the more effective solution.
