Our evidence-based, peer-reviewed curriculum, Embracing Change: Recovery for Life, provides the framework for didactic groups. Utilizing a Motivational Interviewing base, this curriculum helps individuals learn about co-occurring disorders, coping strategies, relationships and family dynamics, and the principles of peer support groups. Throughout the curriculum, many opportunities are provided for clients to apply and reflect upon the provided information.
Nutritional/wellness education, lectures with the Medical Director (Addictionologist/Psychiatrist) and medical staff, life skills training and reading groups about Michael Cartwright’s 5 Essential Elements are provided. A family program developed by Wayne Raiter, MA, LICSW, which offers education and group process services/therapy to individuals and their loved ones, is also featured.
The probability of sustaining lifelong recovery substantially augments when treatment services are individualized and systemically integrated.
Saint Jude Retreats is a non-12 step alternative to traditional rehab services. The Programs taught at Saint Jude’s are unlike any other drug and alcohol program available today, and helps people overcome drugs and alcohol through proven methods that educate the individual on strategies for self-control, person responsibility and the power of free will and choice.
The program is taught over the course of 6 weeks and incorporates the science of personal change- Neuroplasticity and Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE) which focuses in on an individuals' control over behaviors, actions, reactions and thought patterns when faced with difficult circumstances or life events. One-on-one or small class discussions will take place and will include no therapy or treatment practices. Through each phase of the program, team-building social activities will be presented to reinforce positive behaviors and to develop social skills such as commitment, dedication and perseverance. Some activities include; hiking, yoga, indoor rock climbing, skiing or obstacle courses. Saint Jude Retreats has created the change in the treatment industry by not focusing on powerlessness, or teaching that addiction is an incurable disease. The program has 3 locations located in the beautiful serene areas of Upstate New York and one satellite/skype based location in lower Manhattan.
The Saint Jude Program's methods will help you become a more satisfied and fulfilled person, helping you overcome your struggles with no downside and in a peaceful setting.
