Amsterdam, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Saint Jude Retreats, is proud to announce that as of recently, Susanne Herrmann, BSBA, Business Development Director is now an established member of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA).
In addition to belonging to the EAPA, the Saint Jude Retreats program will have a brochure included in all the informational gift bags that the professionals receive at the 2013 World EAPA Conference to help educate professionals on thinking differently about substance use. The informational brochure will help educate employers on providing an alternative to 12 step based treatment programs for those employees in their workforce who are struggling with substance use to build a strong, capable, and confident workforce.
By becoming a member and attending future EAPA conferences, Herrmann hopes to additionally provide a new resource and service for EAP professionals that may be unaware of alternative forms of help, such as a non-12 step program with a success rate that is 12 times higher than treatment. Herrmann will attend one EAPA chapter meeting per month throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Herrmann quotes on her participation as an EAPA member, “I am very excited to be a member of the EAPA. Attending EAPA chapter meetings will allow me to connect with many EAPA professionals, and in turn, help many valuable employees that may be struggling with substance use. It's time for employers to think differently about addiction to enable them to build a strong and powerful workforce verses a workforce with a self-limiting, powerless mentality.”
The Saint Jude Retreats Program helps substance users overcome alcohol and drug use through Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE) and Neuroplasticity. The program helps people retrain the brain to replace substance use with positive and productive behaviors, thoughts and choices.
The Saint Jude Retreats is a non-disease, non-treatment based drug and alcohol program implementing proprietary methodology called Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE). The program is the only effective alternative to alcohol rehab and drug treatment centers and is currently 85% more effective than treatment. The program is endorsed by internationally acclaimed professionals and addiction research authors such as Prof. Emeritus David Hanson, PhD; Prof. David Rudy, PhD; Dr. Joy Browne and the late Joseph Vacca, PhD, among others.
