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 live in Texas, 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.
What isn’t counted in the rates of Cocaine addiction are how many of these admissions are people who relapse and return to treatment. Unfortunately, most people choosing traditional treatment will follow a cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime. Relapse rates for Cocaine addiction are 75% or 2,792 real people who are on the treatment treadmill. Research shows clearly that treatment doesn’t work. If treatment doesn’t work, what can you or a loved one do to end the cycle of relapse for Drug addiction?
