The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Cocaine. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Drug addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Cocaine be going down?
If you’re looking for Drug addiction treatment in Pennsylvania, you are probably aware of the growing problem. Most people choosing a traditional treatment path will follow the cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime.
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 Pennsylvania, 2,037 people sought treatment for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 1,528 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. A more effective long term solution is a non 12 Step program that not only gives you accurate information on addiction but also helps you write a solid plan for meeting the goals and dreams of your life.
