In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 16 or 0.2% of Tennessee's 7,378 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 1,267 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 125,000 or 2.56% of Tennessee' s citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 0.4% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in the past year. Heroin use in Tennessee is limited to a very small number of long-time users. The heroin trafficking situation has been very stable in the state for the past six years, though an increase in heroin availability and highway interdiction was reported recently. In addition, no great change in the demand for the drug is indicated by other factors in Tennessee. Texas and New York are the main sources of Mexican Black Tar and Southeast Asian heroin in Tennessee.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
When you live in Tennessee, finding the right Drug addiction treatment can seem difficult. You know you want a program that works and will last. You know you don’t want to end up in a cycle of relapse and return.
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 Tennessee alone, 743 people were admitted for Heroin addiction and 77.3% or 574 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.
