The Saint Jude Retreats Confidential Non-12 Step Executive Retreat for Substance Use Problems Caters to CEOs and Executives
Saint Jude Executive Retreat Provides Confidentiality to CEOs and Executives
There is only one true non-12 step approach for alcohol and other drug issues and that is The Freedom Model at Saint Jude Retreats. This is an important and bold statement, as many programs claim to be non-12 step, and also claim to be confidential as well. But, in this article, I will demonstrate why this cannot be the case in regards to these counterfeit non-12 step approaches.
First of all, to be a true non-12 step approach, the facility cannot accept third party health insurance payments. There is a simple reason for this fact – to be a legitimate non-12 Step program, the approach must also be completely non-disease based. Since all health insurance carriers need a disease diagnostic code to reimburse programs, a true non-12 Step approach cannot provide this code. 28 years ago, Saint Jude's made the decision that we would not falsely diagnose people with a fictitious disease for extra payments. We felt it to be unethical and we have stuck to our ethics for the entirety of our storied history.
Because we are not involved with insurance companies, or any third parties for that matter, a high level executive or high profile person is able to come without any medical or treatment record. A true non-12 Step approach is NOT treatment. There is no disease, so therefore there is no treatment for a disease, and no record of treatment. Our approach is based on presenting the research that shows exactly why and how people are able to move past the construct of addiction. We concentrate on the facts, the valid research, and our years of experience helping thousands through their struggles.
In our upcoming book, The Freedom Model: Learn How to Escape the Treatment and Recovery Trap, and Overcome Addiction for Good, we explain the details of our 28 years of research. This text replaces our current program, the Saint Jude Program, making better use of all our research and staff training. We look forward to this continuation of our fine tuning of the only true non-12 Step approach.
This we know: executives and CEOs want research based solutions, and to become addiction free while enjoying the amenities they are accustomed to. That is what the Executive Retreat provides and much more.
