We Are Different Than Treatment

  • Effective Addiction Philosophy

    PHILOSOPHY
    The Freedom Model Core

    At Saint Jude's addiction is seen as a habitual behavior that is the result of your beliefs, habits and choices. Through lessons presented in the revolutionary Freedom Model curriculum you will be provided the information necessary to move past both addiction and recovery and become truly free from both so you can move on with your life. You will understand the three pillars of The Freedom Model: The Positive Drive Principle, Free Will, and Autonomy. These are the three core components that free an "addict" or an "alcoholic" from those destructive labels.

    In Treatment -- Addiction is a chronic, progressive, incurable brain disease that renders you powerless over substances, behaviors, thoughts and urges. You never overcome it but remain in perpetual treatment and endless recovery. The Freedom Model upends this terribly limiting and unnecessary struggle.
  • Results Oriented Process to Overcome Addiction without Treatment

    METHODOLOGY
    The Freedom Model

    At Saint Jude's you are never diagnosed or labeled as an addict or alcoholic or as mentally ill or defective. Your identity and future are not defined by your temporary struggles. The Freedom Model completely deconstructs the powerlessness and hopelessness narratives that define addiction and recovery. Guests work through The Freedom Model text and workbooks to transform their thinking and beliefs surrounding addiction so they can move past it permanently.

    In Treatment - Your future is forever defined by your troubled past. You never leave behind your addiction and mental health diagnoses. The methodology in treatment is nearly all 12-step based and disease centered and requires endless recovery. You are never free and center your life on your "disease" and "recovery".

    OUTCOME
    What To Expect

    At Saint Jude's Success is defined as gaining a renewed sense of control over your choices, behaviors and your life. It is defined as obtaining true freedom from addiction and perpetual recovery. There are no meetings to attend, no fear of "triggers" or "relapse", just freedom to choose what you see as best for your life and the freedom to move past both addiction and recovery.

    In Treatment - You sit in talk therapy and support group meetings to learn to take life "one day at a time" and avoid triggers such as stress, trauma, people, places, and things - integral parts of life that can't be avoided. This sets up perpetual failure and a need to "be treated" for the rest of your life.

The Freedom Model

Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap

  • The Freedom Model is the original Non-12 Step Approach that Empowers You to Achieve Permanent Results for your substance use problems. Freedom is knowing you can choose any path for yourself and you are not trapped in lifelong recovery or addiction.
  • The Freedom Model does not label you with terms such as addict or alcoholic because addiction is not a disease and you are not powerless. The Freedom Model completely rejects labeling anyone in these self-defeating ways and shows people how to shed the addict/alcoholic identity completely.
  • The Freedom Model is an approach to substance use problems based on 28 years of continuous research and experience helping thousands of people to solve their problems.

You can finally leave addiction and recovery behind you forever with The Freedom Model

Highest Success Rate

Only Independently Verified Success Rate in the Country

The Saint Jude Retreat's success rate is something you won't find at any alcoholism treatment or drug treatment program today because our success rate is independently verified by a third party research organization. Treatment providers across the country that claim success rates have no documented research to back up their claims.

  • Our Success Rate is Verified and Measured by Outside Research Organizations.
  • Based on Abstinence From All Substances.
  • Also Corroborated By Family Members.

Saint Jude's 62.5% long term success rate is a far more accurate number than drug rehabs or drug treatment facilities because treatment centers who claim success rates survey their clients only a week after program completion, or only while the individual is enrolled in the facility. Our survey results reflect their success a minimum of 1 year after completion and the analysis continues in perpetuity and has for the past 28 years.

We encourage you to ask treatment providers you are considering about their success rates, and if they claim a success rate to produce the documentation to back it up. Many will tell you they don't do actual outcome studies for a variety of reasons, and some will give you an estimate of their success rate based on their personal feelings of what it might be. While other treatment providers will openly mock the idea of a success rate to cover up their lack of confidence in their program outcomes. Unlike treatment, Saint Jude's is completely transparent and we will give you copies of the independent studies up front - it's our commitment to you. View our Success Rates Now.

You Can Move Past Drug Addiction Once and For All

The Freedom Model - The Only True Alternative Approach to Drug Rehab and Treatment

How many stories have you heard of people entering drug rehab and drug treatment over and over again? The reason behind the addiction/recovery cycle is the addiction disease theory and the misleading teachings of drug treatment and rehab programs. In these programs, people are taught they are forever powerless over drugs, they will always have ongoing cravings and urges, trauma, stress, depression, and anxiety cause relapse, which is a part of endless recovery. These teachings literally create a belief system rooted in helplessness and victimhood. Those who believe they are powerless victims, act as powerless victims and continue to struggle needlessly, thus creating a need for more and more treatment. These erroneous teachings continue to fuel a $34 billion dollar treatment industry that has been a factor in creating higher rates of substance use throughout our society. There is an alternative - The Freedom Model.

The Freedom Model is rooted in independent research and common sense. For more than 28 years Saint Jude's has been helping people to put the addiction/recovery cycle behind them forever. At Saint Jude's:

  • Choosing to return to drinking or drugging is not inevitable as it is after attending rehab, and you will learn that you can permanently move past drug and alcohol addiction without wasting years and tens of thousands of dollars in ongoing treatment and endless aftercare support programs.
  • You will learn how you can effectively take control of your substance use through gaining an understanding of what addiction truly is and what it is not.
  • You will understand how you can make changes in your life and how you think and choose for yourself by gaining insights into your beliefs, motivations, as well as your reactions to difficult and challenging situations.

The Freedom Model is designed to show you the immense power you possess to direct the course of your life. As you move on in life, when faced with a difficult challenge, a traumatic event, or deep emotional hurt, you will have the mental ability to alter your actions, reactions, emotions, and thought patterns to overcome any experience that in the past would have been confounding.

Is Alcohol Ruining Your Life? Overcome Alcoholism for Good

Finally an Alternative to Alcohol Rehab and Treatment that Actually Makes Sense

Whether you have gone to alcohol treatment or alcohol rehab programs in the past or this is the first time you are seeking help for an alcohol problem, Saint Jude's takes a revolutionary yet common sense approach to this highly misunderstood problem. The most common misconception in alcohol treatment and alcoholism rehabs today is that alcoholism is a disease. Alcoholism treatment is highly ineffective with relapse rates as high as 95% because of this erroneous concept. Saint Jude Retreats offers the only approach that is truly non disease based. The Freedom Model has been proven effective for more than 28 years by providing factual information supported by the most rigorous research. There are no steps, no support group meetings, and no one telling you how you should live your life, as those things just don't work. Shame and coercion have never provided a solution for those with drug and alcohol issues. In contrast, at Saint Jude's:

  • The Freedom Model debunks all the myths of powerlessness and lifelong recovery.
  • Through personalized instruction, you receive factual information that helps you change your existing habits and thought patterns associated with alcohol. This self-change is made possible with the correct understanding of seeing substance use as a choice, a habit, and as changeable.
  • Whether you are seeking permanent abstinence or to moderate your drinking, you are shown exactly how to get the long term results you desire.

You can finally leave behind the endless cycle of alcoholism and recovery forever. You are in control and always have been, but this reality is difficult to see when you are looking through the cloudy addiction and recovery rhetoric that keeps you trapped. You can be like the millions of people who move past alcohol problems every day and go on to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

At Saint Jude's, you will learn a real solution that has worked for thousands of people and will work for you too! Call us now to finally become free from alcohol addiction.
