Saint Jude Retreats

At Saint Jude Retreats we know that looking for the right drug rehab center or alcohol treatment center can be difficult because there are so many options. Traditional treatment centers promise individuals recovery from addictions through a life committed to daily 12 step meetings and that they accept they are powerless over drugs and alcohol because of a permanent dis-ease that must be treated one day at a time for the rest of their lives. Nothing could be further from the truth! At the Saint Jude Retreat Centers individuals and families learn that "Addiction is not a Disease", and that all Addictions are a compulsive behavior pattern and a lifestyle choice based on learned behaviors.
