Non 12 Step Executive Program
Should I choose a 12 Step Executive Program or a Non 12 Step Program
In conventional, 12 step based treatment programs people are taught they are diseased, powerless and insane. They are taught in order to stay sober they have to rely on God or a "higher power" to remove their shortcomings and have to experience a "spiritual awakening". Recruiting other "alcoholics" or "addicts" to meetings is also another requirement of A.A.'s philosophy to stay clean and sober. These ideas and beliefs are not true and are also harmful to the alcohol/substance abuser.
The Saint Jude Program is much different. This program taught exclusively at authorized centers by the Baldwin Research Institute, such as the Saint Jude Executive Retreat is based on almost 20 years of research.
At The St. Jude Executive Retreat our guests experience, first hand, the amazing results of learning personal responsibility, accountability, empowerment and ultimately – happiness. Our effective, non punitive approach and experienced staff ensures each guest is afforded kindness, respect and dignity. Our guests are guided through the process of recognizing their underlying behavior patterns and their current negative way of thinking. From there the guest will obtain a complete understanding of alcohol and drug problems, a specific solution to those problems, positive motivation and how to achieve happiness – sober and drug free.
Statistics about Conventional 12 Step Treatment Centers.
Conventional alcohol and drug rehab centers do not work for the majority of substance abusers and can be detrimental to their sobriety. 45% of the people who attend A.A. meetings never return after their first meeting. 95% never return after their first year. Based on Alcoholics Anonymous World Services’ own statistics A.A. has only a 5% retention rate. The people who leave A.A. look elsewhere, such as conventional alcohol rehab and drug treatment for solutions, but 97% of all conventional drug and alcohol treatment centers are 12 step based, therefore individuals essentially rejoin A.A.
Success Rate of our Executive Non 12 Step Program
The Saint Jude Program offered at the Executive Retreat has an independent Success Rate 12 times higher than conventional Executive 12 Step Programs. As mentioned the Success Rate is independently measured and verified by a research organization completely independent from Saint Jude's. See their Studies Here.
