Not including the 1,895 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug.

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.
If you’re looking for Drug addiction treatment in Vermont, you are probably aware of the growing problem. Most people choosing a traditional treatment path will follow the cycle of relapse and return to treatment over and over again in their lifetime.
Relapse doesn’t have to be a lifelong fear. You or a loved one can move beyond addiction and relapse permanently by choosing an alternative to treatment in a non 12 Step program. Relapse is reinforced at treatment to explain the high rates of reverting to using Heroin again. When all treatment teaches is avoidance, how do you learn to make a life without Heroin at the center? Research shows that relapse occurs at higher rates when you return over and over to treatment. It’s not about trying treatment another time so you or a loved one will get it right this time. In Vermont, of 3,175 admissions for Heroin, 77.3% or 2,454 people relapsed and returned for more treatment. In fact, returning can actually lower your chances of ending your addiction!
