The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Cocaine. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Drug addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Cocaine be going down?
People in Colorado want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Cocaine. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Colorado.
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 Colorado alone, of the 2,178 people who look for help with Cocaine addiction and go to treatment, 75% or 1,634 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.
