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 South Dakota alone, of the 69 people who look for help with Cocaine addiction and go to treatment, 75% or 52 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.

Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs.
