The Freedom Model Approach Success Rates – Independently Measured and Verified
The Freedom Model for Addictions is offered exclusively at the Saint Jude Retreats and is the only approach in the United States that has an independent research company measure and then verify long term sobriety rates after a guest has returned home from completing The Freedom Model. They are also the only approach that publishes and provides public access to these studies. Baldwin Research Institute, Inc., the parent company of the Saint Jude Retreats, is a research organization whose mission is to develop programs that help people to permanently move beyond substance use, addiction and other habitual behavioral problems. Baldwin Research Institute, Inc. developed The Freedom Model for Addictions after more than 25 years of research.
The survey consists of a single inquiry pertaining to the alcohol and drug use of the individual. The answers are gathered from the program graduate and a corroborator (usually a family member or program payee). The survey is set up to include only two categories; “using” and “not using.” Those who have successfully moderated their use are included in the “using” category for the research purpose of the study. This provides for an unbiased result.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are seeking alcohol or drug treatment and you are gathering preliminary information from different websites, I recommend you ask every treatment center you talk to where and how they get their statistics. Then, after they answer, ask for the documents as proof. Do not be surprised to find that no other facility has documentation of a success rate because they do not care enough to see if what they are providing is effective. The Freedom Model is effective because the myths surrounding the concept of addiction are debunked and it provides a clear path out of the treatment and recovery trap. You don’t have to go to meetings everyday or succumb to the idea that you are powerless.
