Over the years at the Freedom Model Retreat's I have heard how many of our guests, almost half of them, come to our program in search of an alternative to Alcohol Abuse Rehab. I always ask them what the difference between our program and the programs they attended in the pasts are. The answer is always the same, 'at least here I am told, it is up to me to change'. So if you are seeking help because of an Alcohol Addiction Problem and wonder what these people see so different at our place from all the other Alcohol Rehab Programs I have been looking at, this information will help you.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Montana for the year 2004 there were 31,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Florida, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 70,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.38% 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?
Living in Montana you know the available options for help with Alcohol are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Alcohol addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in Montana do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
What isn’t counted in the rates of Alcohol addiction are how many of these admissions are people who relapse and return to treatment. Unfortunately, most people choosing traditional treatment will follow a cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime. Relapse rates for Alcohol addiction are 56.1% or 913 real people who are on the treatment treadmill. Research shows clearly that treatment doesn’t work. If treatment doesn’t work, what can you or a loved one do to end the cycle of relapse for Alcohol addiction?
While it’s clear that treatment doesn’t work from research and statistics, an effective solution is available.
