Finding the right help for Cocaine addiction in Vermont can be done. Treatment isn’t the answer with its high rates of relapse. In addition, treatment teaches you to live a life devoted to preventing addiction instead of leaving it behind you. It’s impossible to end addiction when you spend your time thinking how to make your life smaller to avoid it. You are, in essence, putting the addiction at the center of your life and in charge of what you do and don’t do. Leaving Cocaine in charge of your life is a recipe for relapse.
Relapse is used by treatment to get people to come back over and over again. Research has shown that treatment doesn’t work. In fact, 254 or 75% people relapse every year with Cocaine addiction. Traditional treatment even teaches that everyone is on an endless cycle of relapse and recovery to justify the rounds of treatment they offer. If you or a loved one is ready to change and live their life, it’s time to get off the treatment treadmill.
