Looking for help with addiction to Cocaine can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
Most people in Florida who are looking for help with Cocaine are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 2,172 people looking for help, 1,629 or 75% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
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 Florida of the 2,172 people who sought treatment for Cocaine, 75% or 1,629 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
