Are you or a loved one struggling with Cocaine? Are you looking for a way to truly overcome Drug addiction? Are you one of the many who return to treatment over and over only to relapse? Does it seem as if you or your loved one is getting worse and not better with each admission?
If you live in Alabama, you already know the rates of Cocaine addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Cocaine addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In Alabama alone, of the 912 people who look for help with Cocaine addiction and go to treatment, 75% or 684 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
