Alcohol rehabilitation programs in Michigan utilize different approaches when treating their patients. Some of these programs use counseling sessions designed to help their patients cope with life. Some use medical treatment. Most others employ the 12-step program or an off shoot of such. People seeking inpatient alcohol rehab programs are often pushed into one-size-fits-all, 12-step, diseased-based facilities. Belief in the powerless, diseased state is the single greatest reason conventional inpatient alcohol rehabilitation programs do not achieve high or even moderate success rates. 12-step based alcohol rehabs, along with psychological and medical treatment for alcohol are actually harmful.
According to a recent research performed by the Substance Abuse and Health Services Association, in the State of Michigan for the year 2004 there were 268,000 individuals with an Alcohol Dependency, in the state of Michigan, surprisingly needing but not receiving treatment for Alcohol Use the number only raises to 597,000 alcohol abusers. This number represents 3.44% of the total population with an Alcohol abuse problem in the United States.
When people look for help with Alcohol addiction, they are looking to solve a problem now and forever. The rates of admissions for Alcohol in 2014 were at 13,223 and they seem to climb every year. These numbers represent real people looking for a real, effective solution but not finding it.
Living in Michigan you know the available options for help with Alcohol are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Alcohol addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in Michigan do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Alcohol. Of those, 13,223 people admitted for treatment, 56.1% or 7,418 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse!
