The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Cocaine. 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 Cocaine be going down?

Even worse, people who go to treatment over and over may actually binge more or even try combinations that can prove lethal.
