"Coming to the Saint Jude Retreat was a defining moment in my life. I am forever grateful for the respect and dignity the staff has shown; and more importantly the confidence they have instilled in me".
Saint Jude Retreats helps individuals overcome drug abuse, substance abuse, chemical dependency, drug addiction, alcoholism, and alcohol dependency as well as the emotional and behavioral issues that so often coexist with these problems.
Our Approach marries cutting edge research in Cognitive Behavioral Learning (CBL), the science of neuroplasticity, and meaningful life skill development to help you move beyond your addiction with a self-constructed plan that fits your priorities, your beliefs, and your passions. You make a personal investment in your own goals and dreams by creating a plan that meets your priorities and your lifestyle. You’ll find much more success with our model of personal freedom and choice than with a narrow, rigid cookie cutter set of rules and regulations that only address sobriety.
Saint Jude’s specializes in helping people deal with the following addictions:
If you’ve never gotten help before or you’ve been to a rehab, 12 Step, or treatment program before, please don’t make the mistake of thinking a rigid control model with a lifetime of expensive after care and a commitment to ongoing meetings, sober living, therapy, and other supports is all there is!
Our recovery based society may tell you that once an addict, always an addict, or that you can expect to cycle forever between ”relapse and recovery” but, if that is truly all there is out there, what can you expect to gain from choosing treatment? Wasted time, money, a lower self esteem and confidence, and, unfortunately, many people leave treatment binging harder than when they entered.
You deserve to be free of addiction forever. Don’t stay in the vicious cycle of “recovery and relapse”. If you failed at treatment before, you probably never got the right information to succeed. At over $35 billion dollar business annually, the recovery industry has built-in repeat business. By placing the blame on you and having you embrace their failure as yours, they ensure your return for further treatment.
