Looking for help with addiction to Cocaine can seem an impossible hope. The reason is treatment for addiction doesn’t work and only ends in a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery instead of being able to stop addiction and put it in your past. You want to build a fulfilling life, not a life lived around recovery and fearing your next relapse. There is a better solution and it’s not treatment—it’s non 12 Step.
If you’re looking for Drug addiction treatment in Iowa, 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.
If you’ve attended traditional treatment, or even just heard about 12 Step or treatment programs, you probably have been told that addiction is a life sentence to a cycle of recovery and relapse. Treatment would have you believe that so you will accept returning to treatment again and again, particularly after relapse. Treatment programs promise relapse as a certainty because their focus is abstinence alone. You are told to fear your “triggers” of use and any stress until your world is very small and centered on fighting off that inevitable relapse. Relapse is inevitable if you are relying on treatment’s limited help for change. In Iowa alone, of the 561 people seeking help for Cocaine, 75% or 421 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
