Saint Jude - Twin Rivers Retreat is a private rehab located in Hagaman, New York. Saint Jude - Twin Rivers Retreat specializes in the treatment of substance, drug and alcohol abuse.

Saint Jude - Twin Rivers Retreat Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does Saint Jude - Twin Rivers Retreat offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Family Program

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Couples Treatment

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Whether you have gone to alcohol treatment or alcohol rehab programsin the past or this is the first time you are seeking help for an alcohol problem, Saint Jude's takes a common sense approach to a highly misunderstood problem. The most common misconception in alcohol treatment and alcoholism rehab today is that alcoholism is a disease. Alcoholism treatment is highly ineffective with relapse rates as high as 95% because of this erroneous concept. Saint Jude Retreats offers the only program that has been proven effective for more than 25 years as it provides factual information supported by the most rigorous research. There are no steps, no support group meetings and there is no one telling you how you should live your life as those things just don't work. In contrast, at Saint. Jude's:
Through personalized instruction, you will be provided factual information that will help you change your existing habits and thought patterns associated with alcohol. This self-change is made possible through the science of neuroplasticity and our proprietary Cognitive Behavioral Learning process.
Whether you are seeking permanent abstinence or to take control of your drinking, you will be shown exactly how to get the long term results you desire.
You can finally leave behind the endless cycle of alcoholism and recovery forever. You are in control and always have been. You can be like the millions of people who overcome alcohol problems everyday and go on to lead happy and fulfilling lives.
The Saint Jude Retreats are not religious facilities and the St Jude Program is not a religiously based program nor is there a religious component to the program. We welcome any and all people to our program. The Saint Jude Retreats offer an alternative to drug rehab centers and substance abuse treatment programs and provide a permanent solution for substance use problems and addiction. The St Jude Program is a comprehensive cognitive behavioral learning process to help people to overcome drug abuse, substance abuse, chemical dependency, drug addiction, and alcoholism and the emotional and behavioral issues that usually accompany these problems.
All this talk of dreams, values, and goals means little if the results are not there. But they are. The St. Jude Retreats has always held true to our fundamental drive for research based solutions. For instance, the Freedom Model Philosophy, the basis of our program, was born from over 18 years of results at our three retreats. If people did not overcome their problems over the long term, then there is no value. But thousands have."
