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.
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?
It’s true that people in Michigan value their independence and freedom. If you or a loved one live with Alcohol addiction, you know how Alcohol can seem to rob you of your freedom and life choices. Choosing treatment can feel like your only options are to be a prisoner to the drug or to the treatment program. Finally, people in Michigan have another, more effective option that restores freedom without fear of relapse and without having to dedicate yourself to working a program-the non 12 Step program at Freedom Model Retreats. You can finally get beyond not only addiction but also the lifelong fear of relapse promoted by treatment.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Michigan of the 13,223 people who sought treatment for Alcohol, 56.1% or 7,418 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
