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?
When you live in Montana, finding the right Alcohol addiction treatment can seem difficult. You know you want a program that works and will last. You know you don’t want to end up in a cycle of relapse and return.
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 Montana alone, of the 1,627 people who look for help with Alcohol addiction and go to treatment, 56.1% or 913 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.
