Finding help for Cocaine addiction can seem overwhelming. Especially if you or a loved one has been to treatment before.

Living in Texas 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 Texas, 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 doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Cocaine again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Cocaine at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In Texas, of 3,722 admissions for Cocaine, 75% or 2,792 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction!
