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.
Finding the right help for Cocaine addiction in Massachusetts can be done. Treatment isn’t the answer with its high rates of relapse. In addition, treatment teaches you to live a life devoted to preventing addiction instead of leaving it behind you. It’s impossible to end addiction when you spend your time thinking how to make your life smaller to avoid it. You are, in essence, putting the addiction at the center of your life and in charge of what you do and don’t do. Leaving Cocaine in charge of your life is a recipe for relapse.
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 Massachusetts, 2,319 people sought treatment for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 1,739 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.
