In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 1,714 or 2.3% of Colorado's 76,657 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 6,701 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more that one drug. Studies also show that 116,000 or 3.1% of Colorado's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use in the past year. There were also studies that showed 2.8% of high school adolescents had used heroin at some point in their lives. Mexican black tar heroin is the predominant type of heroin found in Colorado and is available in the major metropolitan areas. Mexican brown heroin is also found, but to a much lesser degree. Various law enforcement and treatment indicators suggest that heroin availability and use may be on the rise in Colorado.
Are you or a loved one dealing with Heroin addiction? Chances are you think the only approach is treatment and a lifetime of recovery with relapses along the way. You don’t have to spend your life waiting for the next relapse or spending time and money on another treatment center. Research shows treatment doesn’t work for Heroin addiction. You can find a better answer and move beyond Drug addiction forever.
Finding the right help for Heroin addiction in Colorado 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 Heroin in charge of your life is a recipe for relapse.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In Colorado alone, of the 6,204 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 4,796 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
When treatment doesn’t work, a non 12 Step solution is an excellent and effective alternative.
