At Saint Jude's we educate guests that the answer to a permanent drug free lifestyle and lifetime of happiness lies within yourself. When determining the perfect Drug Rehab that you feel will meet all of your needs remember that the solution to heroin dependency is all about being in control of your actions and decisions.
In recent surveys performed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 16 people or .04% of Alaska's 4,006 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 1,155 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for more than one drug. Studies also show that 18,000 or 3.5% of Alaska's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use within the past year. Small amounts of black tar heroin are available in Alaska. Mexican organizations control the distribution of black tar heroin. OxyContin, with effects similar to heroin, has become the drug of choice for heroin abusers in the state.
Are you or a loved one struggling with Heroin? Are you looking for a way to truly overcome Drug addiction? Are you one of the many who return to treatment over and over only to relapse? Does it seem as if you or your loved one is getting worse and not better with each admission?
Living in Alaska 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 Alaska, helping someone overcome Heroin is really about looking for a non 12 Step program as research shows this approach to be an effective long term solution.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 545 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 421 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed.
