Saint Jude's Offers the Most Successful Alternative to Drug Executive Treatment Centers -The Freedom Model Program
When picturing someone struggling with a serious drug problem, many people envision a homeless person, a teenager, or a young adult. They do not picture an adult professional who may have achieved success in many areas of life. Executive drug treatment tends to utilize a pseudo-medical, pseudo-religious, punitive approach to substance use problems. Group therapy and addiction counseling in this negative vein can be degrading and depressing to all people but can be especially harmful to those who have been successful achievers in life.
When seeking help for a drug problem, adult professionals and those who are in higher profile professions often feel they have nowhere to turn. Executive drug treatment programs offer treatment based on the out-dated and scientifically disproven disease theory of addiction. Success rates for these programs range from 5 - 20% and success is promised only if you continue to attend daily group meetings for the rest of your life. This is a trap. Many professionals are told they must put their careers, their families, and essentially their entire lives on hold indefinitely, so they can focus all their energies on staying clean one day at a time in their battle with addiction. This is both unnecessary and harmful and keeps the person revolving in the endless addiction/recovery cycle. This trap is designed by the treatment industry to keep you paying for treatment stays by keeping you in an endless “recovery” loop. As these otherwise successful individuals essentially throw out the most successful areas of their lives in an effort to fix one or two problematic areas, they can become depressed, anxiety-ridden, and overwhelmed.
In contrast, The Freedom Model offered exclusively at the Saint Jude Retreat provides a comprehensive guide to move past addiction and its stable-mate recovery and escape the treatment trap completely. There is no need to give up what is successful in your life. Instead, you can use it as a springboard to improve on those areas of life you would like to change.
For the adult professional, attending a residential program is an investment of time and money, and it can potentially harm your reputation and your career. However, Saint Jude's guarantees your complete privacy and, because it is not an executive drug treatment center, but rather a beautiful bed-and-breakfast retreat offering an educational program, there are no incriminating medical records and no potentially damaging labels.
While offering ineffective and sometimes harmful and demeaning treatment, many executive drug treatment programs also exploit their high profile guests for their own gain. This practice is widespread in treatment circles and is highly unethical. The Saint Jude Retreat is the only facility and approach that guarantees the confidentiality of all our guests. Executive drug treatment programs tell people they have a progressive, incurable disease called addiction and then treat them like they are children and criminals. The Freedom Model teaches people how to harness their innate power of choice to overcome their problems and build the life they want.
For those seeking an executive drug treatment program, the Saint Jude Retreat offers an effective alternative to residential drug treatment: The Freedom Model. Whether facing a loss of family, career, legal problems, or you are simply looking for a more fulfilling life, the Saint Jude Retreat can help.
