You may be concerned about being away for the holidays

Here we are again, another year almost over. Festive holiday decorations dot the landscape and there is a buzz of activity and excitement in the air everywhere you turn. Everyone has their holiday time traditions; baking cookies, watching cheesy Christmas love stories and those old classic Christmas movies, and getting together with family and friends to celebrate the season.

For some the end of another year sparks a renewed resolve for change. Perhaps you set some personal goals at the beginning of 2017 and now 2018 is coming upon you quickly and you realize you haven’t achieved them. If you’re someone who is struggling with a substance use problem and you’re still struggling in spite of attending another rehab, more counseling, meetings and treatment throughout 2017, there is still time this year to finally break free for good.

You may be concerned about being away for the holidays, but the Retreats offers a homey, comfortable, and festive atmosphere throughout the season, while providing you with the truth about addiction and recovery. Addiction is not a disease and you are not powerless; with The Freedom Model for Addictions you will learn exactly why you may feel that way, and how you can change it.

Addiction and its counterpart, recovery, can become a virtual prison. Far too many people become stuck in a revolving door of addiction/treatment/recovery that has no exit, but there is a way out and you can effect lasting change in your life before the clock ticks down to midnight on New Year’s Eve. The Freedom Model for Addictions offered at the Saint Jude Retreats can show you how you can step out of the revolving door and make a dramatic life change that lasts far beyond 2018.
