Is Cocaine addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Drug addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
People in Connecticut know that addiction to Cocaine keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Connecticut of the 4,305 people who sought treatment for Cocaine, 75% or 3,229 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
