People in Missouri know that addiction to Cocaine keeps growing. Staying on the treatment treadmill isn’t working so many of them are looking for a proven, research based, results oriented solution other than treatment with its cycle of recovery and relapse.
When you see relapse for what it is, you realize why treatment needs you to believe that your only options are recovery and relapse for the rest of your life. Since treatment focuses on abstinence without any real evidence based solutions, they expect to see people come back many times. In Missouri alone, 1,522 people were admitted for Cocaine addiction and 75% or 1,142 people relapsed in one year!
