Saint Jude Retreats Announces Chairman Mark Scheeren’s Recent Radio Interview

The greatest reward is knowing that we changed lives.

The Saint Jude Retreats is proud to announce that on November 21, 2013, Mark Scheeren, Chairman of the Saint Jude Retreats interviewed with Dr. Irene Conlan on Voice of American’s Self Improvement Show which will be aired again on November 28, 2013. Throughout the interview, Scheeren discussed the history of Baldwin Research Institute, Inc. the original parent company of the Saint Jude Retreats, which is an alternative to 12 step programs and promotes that addiction can be overcome and is not a disease.

Throughout the interview, Scheeren touched on the subject of his own experiences with different alcohol and treatment programs and how that in turn became one of the main reasons behind the creation of a different solution for substance use. Scheeren after adds, “nobody is powerless over anything, except when they choose to be so which is in opposition to what traditional treatment programs teach.”

Dr. Conlan introduced Saint Jude Retreats program as “The Permanent Solution For Addictions.” Conlan quotes, “The Saint Jude Program and the Saint Jude Home Program have revolutionized the entire treatment industry and are the driving force behind the rejection of the 12 step movement the substance abuse treatment industry. And yes, it is indeed an industry; substance abuse treatment is a very big business.”

Scheeren also announced the new, 13th edition of the Saint Jude Program “The Definitive Guide to Self Directed Neuroplastic Change” in the interview. The updated version will help people struggling with all life’s issues not only substance use problems. Scheeren additionally, emphasized the around the clock availability of Saint Jude Retreats representatives, who can help with questions and concerns. As part of the Saint Jude Retreats efforts to make the program more affordable are the many options through which people can access it- the residential program, where people have to attend in person, the Home Program that can be done with the help of our instructors or individually by each guests, and day classes via Skype.

In addition to the big announcement of the updated program, Scheeren also briefly spoke about Baldwin Research Institute’s past research efforts and the remarkable results they prove. “The greatest reward is knowing that we changed lives,” Scheeren adds. “The main focus of that program is to empower people and teach them that the solution is within them, and nothing but their choice and will is required for their success.”
