Long Distance and Remote/Online Programs
Saint Jude Remote/Online Programs for substance use are an ideal solution for individuals who are seeking an outpatient alternative for substance use or have limitations on their travel availability to engage in a residential program. Offering the same revolutionary Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE) content and methods that are presented at our residential Saint Jude Retreats programs, the Saint Jude Remote/Online Programs allow individuals to remain engaged in their life commitments of family, career, and personal responsibilities while engaging in the dynamic process of self-assessment and behavioral change.
Our Remote/Online Program may be provided as an in-person option for persons in and around the New York City area or as an online program via Skype for access worldwide. Skype allows virtually anyone with a desire to improve their life-and an internet connection-to engage one-on-one with a certified Cognitive Behavioral Education (CBE) presenter in bi-weekly classes focusing on personal responsibility, empowerment, and self-directed positive neuroplastic change. The CBE presenter sets up a class schedule with the individual to move progressively through the course material and assignments. The CBE curriculum serves to supply an individualized framework for current challenges, including substance use, and develop knowledge of how to self-assess and implement changes for future planning.
For those seeking an effective, private, and quick solution in choosing to move forward in their lives, the Saint Jude Remote/Online Program provides a substance use program without the 12 Step baggage of fear of relapse, shaming and judgmental perceptions and stigmas. Within a few weeks time, an individual can shed their societal identity of "addict" or "alcoholic" and create their personal plan to implement positive, transformative change in their life. This change is self-determined change without endless, expensive therapeutic intervention or commitment to lifelong meetings and the dependency that can come with them. The Saint Jude - Remote Remote/Online Program is an excellent option for those looking for a private and confidential way to move permanently beyond their substance use on their own terms with their own schedule.
