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.
Living in Rhode Island you may be wondering if there is any treatment that works for addiction. The simple answer is treatment doesn’t work. While numbers increase for Drug addiction in Rhode Island, helping someone overcome Cocaine is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
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 Rhode Island, 699 people sought treatment for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 524 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.
