When people look for help with Cocaine addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Cocaine in 2014 were at 561 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
Most people in Iowa 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 561 people looking for help, 421 or 75% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Relapse is a serious issue and all the more so as treatment not only ignores dealing with it but instills an expectation and fear of relapse in those who go to treatment. It’s not uncommon for people to be told while in treatment to expect to be back for more treatment when they fail. In only one year in Iowa, 561 people sought treatment for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 421 people relapsed. On the one hand treatment tells you that you are the cause of relapse yet they never give you information or help to move beyond.
