Amsterdam, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
As of January 2013, the St Jude Program now offers a 4 week accelerated program exclusively at the Executive Retreat location. The 4 week accelerated program, provides the guest with the same information and benefit as the 6 week program and is by request only. The program has developed into a 4 week program, as many busy professionals and business owners need to return to their jobs or businesses in a timely manner. The St Jude Program is a non-disease based alternative to treatment centers which helps individuals understand how their thoughts and behaviors have shaped their current substance use habits and other issues that may be detracting from their happiness, motivation and fulfillment.
Mr. Mark Scheeren, the Chairman of St. Jude’s explains, “The working or retired professional has been provided many different styles of luxury rehabs throughout the United States. Unfortunately, those treatment centers are just over priced resorts with modified versions of the old 12 step programs filled with the same ineffective material, rather than a method such as ours that teaches how to actually move on with one’s life, and to find that old drive and fulfillment again."
The social and educational program used at the St Jude Program is typically easy to grasp for business professionals because of their strong ability to critically think, problem solve, and analyze a situation. The Executive Retreat offers only personalized one-on-one classes for individualized attention. Along with the social and educational portion, the Executive Retreat is filled with accommodations such as private suites, personal chef, private massage therapist, and a personal driver.
Scheeren additionally adds, "Over the last 23 years, we have been developing non-treatment programs that cater to different demographics, and the professional has certain requirements that are special and necessary. The St. Jude non-treatment approach does just that; it teaches smart, capable, people how to move on with the next stage of life by examining common sense, practical, and effective lessons in a wonderful and dignified atmosphere.”
The St Jude's Executive Retreat is not only luxurious, but is also located in a private setting and completely confidential as it only allows six guests at a time. Working professionals can bring laptops, cell phones and will have WIFI access at all times. The St Jude Program offers a non-treatment approach that allows the guests to build future plans and rebuild those areas of life that need improvement. The St. Jude Program is the only true choice-based program in the nation.
