Short Stay, Non 12 Step Executive Rehab for Cocaine and Alcohol Addiction
Saint Jude Executive Retreat Provides an Accelerated Program - The Freedom Model
Most executives don't have time to go away to rehab for months on end. The damage to their careers, as a result of their alcohol and/or drug use, usually has put them in a poor position to take months off to attend treatment. At the Saint Jude Executive Retreat, we hear this same frustration from executives from all over the world. We also know most executives or CEOs have little regard for the 12 Step model. The most common statement we hear is, "The 12 Steps just did not resonate with me." To address both the time issue and the desire for a non-12 Step model, the Saint Jude Retreats offers the only secular, non-12 step, accelerated program in existence - The Freedom Model.
When we created the non-12 step model more than 28 years ago, we determined that there were people who wanted a common sense method to overcome substance use issues, as well as anxiety issues and depression. At that time, there were no non-12 step programs in existence. As a research organization, Saint Jude's spearheaded the creation of the first alternative to the 12 Steps, and the non-12 step model was born.
Over the last couple of decades, we perfected the model, as others in the field went in the opposite direction by mixing the 12 Steps with a non-12 Step model. This, of course, has resulted in many programs containing just a watered down version of what Saint Jude's created decades prior. While these facilities went backwards, we at Saint Jude's continued to fine tune our processes and moved forward, making sure we remained completely non-12 Step. We have consistently improved the common sense, non-disease based methodology. We also listened to our guests and created the accelerated version of our approach for those guests that were highly motivated and needed to get back to work as soon as possible. We also allowed our guests to continue to work remotely from our retreats as they completed The Freedom Model coursework. To this end, our Executive Retreat is fully WIFI capable, and our guests keep and use as they wish their cell phones, laptops, and tablets so they can stay committed to their careers and families as they want or need to.
Lastly, other programs will try to overwhelm the client with all kinds of add-on attractions that are more akin to a high profile vacation. And, while much of that is fun, there needs to be a balance created in the experience where learning occurs utilizing a highly effective curriculum, and the person is comfortable and able to stay in touch with the world. After helping people with the original and only true non-12 Step, non-disease based methods, we know how to achieve that balance.
