Saint Jude's Offers the Most Successful Alternative to Executive Drug Rehabs
For nearly 30 years, Baldwin Research Institute, Inc., (BRI) has been studying the efficacy of executive drug rehab programs and executive drug rehab facilities nationwide and found them to be completely ineffective with success rates well below 20% (that is 10% less than doing nothing!) The question is why? As all drug rehab programs available are based on the disease theory of addiction and utilize questionable treatment methods that support this disease myth, BRI reacted by creating the only real alternative to these harmful programs – The Freedom Model (previously called the Saint Jude Program). Thus the first non-treatment, non 12 Step approach to helping people to overcome substance use problems was born. Based on BRI's on-going research and experience helping thousands of people, The Freedom Model is a comprehensive, social-educational approach to help people move past the endless addiction/recovery cycle that keeps people trapped for years. As it is the only model that puts the innate power of choice back in the hands of each individual, it is the most effective approach to alcohol and drug use available today.
The question most people ask is, if The Freedom Model is so effective why don't executive drug rehabs use it? The answer is simple; behavioral science is like a large ocean liner. Once a belief system (even those defined by myths and misinformation) is well entrenched, even when these beliefs are defined by myths and misinformation, as are the addiction disease theory and control model methods used at drug rehabs throughout the country, all research is done with the sole purpose of keeping the ocean liner on course. Any research that produces results that may throw the ocean liner off its charted course is discarded as being dangerous, erroneous, or quackery. Anyone who has been on a cruise knows that turning a large ocean vessel around, especially one with a full head of steam, takes much time and an enormous amount of preparation and work. This is much the same for the well-entrenched addiction disease paradigm and control model drug treatment methods utilized at all drug rehab programs nationwide.
The truth is only the Saint Jude Retreats offer a model based on defining addiction as a habit, and the solution to that habit is knowledge, facts, and knowing the individual is free to choose his/her preferences for their level of alcohol and drug use. That model is called The Freedom Model.
Executive drug rehabs based on the addiction disease belief system have created a culture of powerlessness throughout the country, and this myth, unfortunately, is ever-growing and expanding to other cultures around the world. Whereas the addiction disease was once limited to the behaviors of ingesting alcohol or drugs, and was thought to be caused by biological reactions to ingesting substances, there is now no limit to behaviors that professionals say can become "addicting." From gambling, eating, playing video games, sex, shopping, to viewing pornography, hoarding, or using lip balm, virtually no behavior is immune to this addiction mythology. This has allowed for the vast expansion of the drug rehab industry and has spurred a pharmaceutical industry boom like no other in history.
Despite the ever-expanding culture of powerlessness that has gripped our culture and is encroaching on our lives, the truth still shines like a beacon. Everyday, throughout our country and around the world, people overcome enormous, seemingly insurmountable, obstacles to transform their lives. While some are stuck in the revolving door of drug rehab programs, learning and accepting they are powerless and diseased for life, there are thousands more who are told or already know they do have the power of choice, and they mature out of substance use problems to lead happy, successful lives. This is the population we studied for decades, along with the population immersed in the recovery society. It was vital to know that the vast majority of people with substance use issues moved past their addictions with no treatment whatsoever. So what did this successful demographic do? How did they move past these destructive issues? By studying this population, we gained much of the knowledge to demonstrate to those struggling with addictions how to grow and lead free lives. That is what The Freedom Model offers you at the Saint Jude Executive Retreat.
