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 193 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
If you live in Oregon, you already know the rates of Cocaine addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
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 Oregon alone, of the 193 people who look for help with Cocaine addiction and go to treatment, 75% or 145 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.
