The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Heroin. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Drug addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Heroin be going down?
When you live in Virginia, 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.
Relapse is a problem because treatment doesn’t work! Going back to treatment that didn’t work before is likely to have the same result of not ending addiction. Even worse, people who go to treatment over and over may actually binge more or even try combinations that can prove lethal. In 2014, 2,751 sought treatment. 77.3% or 2,127 relapsed after treatment for Heroin. So if the answer isn’t treatment—what does work?
