Thinking there is no way out of relapse for Alcohol? Seeking another treatment program is likely to give you or a loved one the same or worse results. Research proves treatment doesn’t work. You can move beyond Alcohol addiction with a non 12 Step approach that offers a permanent solution.
Living in Missouri you know the available options for help with Alcohol are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Alcohol addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in Missouri do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Missouri alone, 6,892 people were admitted for Alcohol addiction and 56.1% or 3,866 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
