If you or a loved one are living with Cocaine addiction, you already know you’re not alone. Searching for the right solution can be difficult and discouraging. So many people seem to need help and often they return again and again to treatment. If treatment works, why are people getting worse instead of better? The answer is treatment doesn’t work but luckily there is a truly effective way to end addiction- Non 12 Step.
Most people in Louisiana who are looking for help with Cocaine are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 770 people looking for help, 578 or 75% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
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 Louisiana alone, of the 770 people seeking help for Cocaine, 75% or 578 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
