Freedom Model exists to help people with alcohol and drug problems, but we are not an alcohol rehab, nor do we call ourselves one. In America, "rehab" conjures up images of group therapy, 12 step meetings, and sulking "addicts" and "alcoholics" struggling with their demons. This IS NOT an accurate picture of Freedom Model. The concept of alcohol rehab is based on the idea that people are sick, dependent, weak, and in need of emotional "treatment." Freedom Model curriculum is based on the facts that people are inherently not sick, not dependent, strong, and in need of options to better make positive productive choices.
Therefore, the term rehab is defined as a program that benefits from the individual's beliefs in their weaknesses, their powerlessness, their unhappiness, their inability to cope, and that they have an incurable disease. Freedom Model carries the opposite view, so therefore we could never be defined as an alcohol rehab. We do not treat individuals because there is no disease to treat. The disease concept has been debunked for over 70 years! We do not rehabilitate anyone, because Freedom Model is not based on controlling sick patients, but rather empowering strong willed, independent, individuals who are temporarily in a state of confusion, misinformation and who live unknowing of their unlimited positive options in life.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of North Dakota for the year 2004 there were 20,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of North Dakota, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 53,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.27% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
If you or a loved one are living with Alcohol addiction, you already know you’re not alone. Searching for the right solution can be difficult and discouraging. So many people seem to need help and often they return again and again to treatment. If treatment works, why are people getting worse instead of better? The answer is treatment doesn’t work but luckily there is a truly effective way to end addiction- Non 12 Step.
It’s true that people in North Dakota 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 North Dakota 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.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In North Dakota alone, 847 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 475 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
When Alcohol addiction, relapse, and recovery seem to rob your life of meaning and hope, there is an effective alternative—the original and completely non 12 Step program at Freedom Model Retreats. Rather than focusing on your recovery, we help you focus on your life beyond addiction so you can leave fear, worry, and shame in your past.
