Im not sure this place has anything to do with the troubled teen industry as such. I think it is more a rehab for adults that focuses on a behavioral therapy model. It's parent company is a Catholic organization called the Baldwin Research group. http://www.baldwinresearch.com/
(Not surprising since it is named after the catholic saint of hopeless causes) So i guess if i were looking at it I would ask them how religious the treatment program is. One promising sign was that they seem to frown on traditional aggressive "Interventions"

Q. Do you have an Interventionist or offer Intervention services?

A. The St. Jude Retreats understand that sometimes approaching your loved one about a drug or alcohol problem can be half the battle. While pop television shows may glamorize traditional, confrontational type interventions, research has shown this methodology to be ineffective and oftentimes having the detrimental effect of pushing your loved one even farther away from the help they need. But there is a solution. The St. Jude Retreatsí Family Liaison, is not a traditional Interventionist, but rather a Jude Thaddeus Program specialist whose mission is to assist you to effectively walk through the process of finding the help your loved one needs. Please call our Family Liaison today at 1-888-424-2626 for a free consultatio

Thank you very much Oz. This info was helpful. A friend of a friend was/is having a major problem with their sons alcohol/drug addiction and was asking for very short term solution and this program popped up as a possible placement. I was drawn to this place because of their non aggressive approach to the addiction problem. Their son is older then the norm here (he is 18yrs) so he would have to consent, I was hoping that he would possibly just acquiesce to some counseling and maybe the drug Naltrexone: http://www.assistedrecovery.com/beta/naltrexone.htm/ or http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Sinclair-Me ... ohol-abuse  .
Idk though still researching for future benefit. His parents and the son have the latest information.
Once again thanks.
