Scientific Evidence Proves Schick Shadel’s 10-Day Treatment Program Works!
Schick Shadel is the only inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation hospital in the nation that uses medical science, aversion therapy and counter conditioning to successfully treat addiction by stopping addictive cravings in the brain. As a result, Schick Shadel has treated more than 80,000 patients successfully over the past 80 years.
In a recent study, 69% of participating patients reported they were sober 12 months after treatment.**
A Schick Shadel and University of Washington study observed patient’s craving-related brain activity using an fMRI scan before treatment and 4 days after Schick Shadel’s treatments. The study concluded that there was a significant reduction or complete elimination of addictive cravings within the brain. After 12 months, 69% of participating patients were still sober.**

Schick Shadel’s patient, Kathleen S, wrote the book,“Drink Up! How 10 Days Ended a Lifetime of Addiction”
“I tried just about everything to quit drinking. Nothing worked. I was a binge drinker living on borrowed time – I was 56 years old with two brothers dead of addiction by their 40s. My life and health were rapidly breaking down. Then one day I heard an advertisement for a ten-day treatment program that promised to take away my cravings. Too good to be true? That was in 2005 and I’ve not had a drink since. My book describes the treatment program in detail. My family and I are forever grateful to Schick Shadel Hospital!”
