Alcohol rehabilitation programs in Michigan utilize different approaches when treating their patients. Some of these programs use counseling sessions designed to help their patients cope with life. Some use medical treatment. Most others employ the 12-step program or an off shoot of such. People seeking inpatient alcohol rehab programs are often pushed into one-size-fits-all, 12-step, diseased-based facilities. Belief in the powerless, diseased state is the single greatest reason conventional inpatient alcohol rehabilitation programs do not achieve high or even moderate success rates. 12-step based alcohol rehabs, along with psychological and medical treatment for alcohol are actually harmful.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Michigan for the year 2004 there were 268,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Michigan, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 597,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 3.44% of the total population with an Alcohol abuse problem in the United States.
