The Cognitive Behavioral Educator will teach you…

  • How to achieve sobriety or moderation in regards to substance use issues.
  • Private classes based on the Freedom Model philosophy: "An individual is motivated by the pursuit of happiness at any given point in his/her life." The question is this: has your current pursuit brought you the most satisfaction? Probably not. We can help you find what you are searching for, and help you discover solutions to your troubles and life challenges.
  • How to effectively and productively deal with the inevitable life changes that occur naturally.
  • How to overcome depression and anxiety
  • How to proactively make decisions and build confidence again.
  • How to build greater self-esteem.
  • How to discover the career path (if this is an issue of course) that best fits your needs and desires.
  • How to create positive Neuroplastic changes in your brain as a result of the curriculum lessons and time spent rebuilding your life.

Non-12 step:

  • Our alternative to drug and alcohol outpatient clinics and counseling was created by the same research team that built the original non-12 step program in 1989.

Non-Treatment Approach:

  • If you are not diseased (and you clearly are not) then there is nothing to "treat."

Non-disease based:

  • For over seventy years researchers have been searching for the "gene" or “physical allergy theory” of addiction. To date, none has been found. That is simply because your thoughts, motives and choices are not run by your genetics. You choices to use, drink, have dissatisfying relationships and unfulfilling careers are not genetic, but rather behavioral and self based. In short, they can be changed for the better with the correct facts, information and planning that makes sense.

Again, if you are searching for sobriety/moderation, more fulfilling relationships, greater confidence, positive plans for the future, and you do not want to be stuck in therapy, counseling, 12 step meetings or support groups for the rest of your life, then the St. Jude Program NYC is the program that may fit your needs.
