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?

Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Alaska alone, 59 people were admitted for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 44 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse.
