Long Term Alternative to Executive Treatment
The Freedom Model Future Planning
We see three common demographics of people enroll in The Freedom Model at the Saint Jude Executive Retreat. A percentage of guests in each of these demographics may need help in other areas of their lives after they have completed The Freedom Model course at the retreat. For these guests, we offer Freedom Model Future Planning.
Ensuring You Have a Plan For Continued Success
So who are these guests with these other ancillary needs? They are:
- The middle-aged Executive/CEO who has achieved a level of success in their life, but who is struggling with drugs and/or alcohol. Guests in this demographic can also be struggling with marital troubles, legal issues, strained family relationships, financial issues as a result of poor decision making while using substances, etc. They tend to say they "feel stuck" which is uncharacteristic for them based on their successful past experience in life. This feeling keeps them in a state of anxiousness and wields a sense of loss of confidence.
- The Senior Executive, CEO or Entrepreneur. They too have achieved a level of success, and, like their middle aged counterparts above, they are not sure how to move forward. They too feel "stuck" and are unsure of "what's next" as they move into their senior years.
- Then we have the younger demographic that might have just begun a successful life. They might be a new parent, a new entrepreneur, or even a socialite, and they are struggling to keep their momentum and happiness in life alive.
As each person's needs, circumstances, and goals are unique, researchers at Saint Jude's offer a way to build a customized plan for each individual when they return home. While The Freedom Model addresses the substance use issues, as well as the emotional issues such as depression and anxiety, dealing with stress, finding fulfillment, etc., they guest may need help with a very specific set of needs. They might need to address areas of need or interest outside the scope of these issues to maximize and sustain personal growth as you return home.
For instance, guests may need information and logistical support to relocate to a new area after completing their retreat stay to go back to college, or maybe guests need to navigate through a divorce, re-establish positive family relationships, or discuss career options with your employer, decide upon a new career field, or find a job for the first time ever. These are all aspects to the Future Planning module at the Saint Jude Retreats. You can request a consultation with our Career and Academic Director to determine your best Future Planning choices and the appropriate planning content to address your specific needs in every area you choose. Future Planning helps guests address specific areas of need so they are better prepared to return home on a solid footing.
