Many people cope with stress and stressful situations in a variety of different manners, which often include resorting to the use of substances to escape. Many times they choose alcohol because of how readily available it is and the social environments that surround the consumption of alcohol. The inevitable problem is whenever a coping mechanism is used there is a general tendency for abuse, and alcohol is no exception.
Once this happens most people require assistance to overcome their choice, which usually ends up with some sort of enrollment into an alcohol rehab. Many times family members are involved in this process in order to make the appropriate choice of which alcohol rehabilitation center is the best choice for their loved one. And to make things even more complicated there are several different types of programs offered at each alcohol rehab center. There are two basic different forms of programs offered, the first is a 12 step based program, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and the other is the freedom model, such as the Freedom Model Program.
The Freedom Model Program is an alternative to conventional alcohol rehabs. Since 1992 we offer a Non Treatment Approach to overcoming drugs and alcohol. We Can Help.
Did You Know?
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Utah for the year 2004 there were 59,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Utah, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 111,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 0.68% of the total population with an Alcohol dependency abuse problem in the United States.
When people look for help with Alcohol addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Alcohol in 2014 were at 2,350 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
People in Utah want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Alcohol addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Alcohol. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Utah.
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 Utah alone, of the 2,350 people who look for help with Alcohol addiction and go to treatment, 56.1% or 1,318 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.
If treatment doesn’t work and relapse and recovery is not the only option for addiction, what does work?
