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.
People in North Dakota know that addiction to Heroin keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In North Dakota alone, 62 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 48 people relapsed in one year! Treatment fails you and then tells you to expect and fear failure in the form of relapse. They don’t address how to move beyond addiction or relapse but merely to avoid it. In contrast, a non 12 Step solution helps you get research based information on addiction and formulate the personal plan for you to leave addiction behind.
