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.

Is Alcohol addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Alcohol addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
Living in Illinois you may be wondering if there is any treatment that works for addiction. The simple answer is treatment doesn’t work. While numbers increase for Alcohol addiction in Illinois, helping someone overcome Alcohol is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Alcohol addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Illinois alone, of the 5,030 people who look for help with Alcohol addiction and go to treatment, 56.1% or 2,822 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
