In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 531 or 9.4% of Vermont's 5,660 state residents admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 1,895 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 16,000 or 3.01% of Vermont's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 4% of high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in their lives. There is availability of heroin in the state in street/user level quantities. A typical heroin distributor in Vermont is a heroin user who distributes the drug in order to support his/her heroin addiction. Heroin is obtained by individuals who travel to source areas in Massachusetts and New York. The most common method of transport of heroin between Vermont and source areas is the use of automobiles.
Is Heroin addiction a problem for you or a loved one? You’re not alone. When it comes to Drug addiction, the numbers seem to climb every year.
People in Vermont want to live independent lives and enjoy their freedom. Living with Drug addiction can seem to rob you or a loved one of choices as more of your life centers on Heroin. When people go to treatment, they are taught the cycle of giving up has only just begun and now they are giving up their lives to treatment rather than drugs. Neither solution is a good one. That’s why a non 12 Step approach that allows you to move permanently beyond addiction and focus on your life is such an important breakthrough option for people in Vermont.
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! Ending addiction is about having accurate information and a plan to live your life beyond the program-exactly what the non 12 Step program at Saint Jude Retreats does.
