At the Freedom Model we have discovered that typical treatment is not necessary to stop someone from using heroin. In Arizona many people are seeking help as drug use is at an all time high. When somebody is told they are sick or an addict they feel as though they are suffering from an awful disease and must overcome a sickness. These thoughts leave them feeling helpless, powerless and dependent on a treatment to fix their supposed "heroin addiction." When an individual can understand that drug use is not an addiction they can come to terms and accept that in reality they can take control of their lives.
Mexican black tar heroin is the predominant type of heroin found in Arizona. Heroin is smuggled into Arizona primarily through Arizona's Ports of Entry by pedestrians or within hidden compartments in vehicles. When comparing the availability of heroin throughout Arizona, the Phoenix Metropolitan Area continues to remain the greatest area in the state for heroin availability. Over the last two years, the Phoenix Metropolitan Area has not witnessed any noticeable changes in the availability of black tar heroin. Arizona continues to witness a steady increase in the abuse of OxyContin. Oxycodone products are opiate agonists, like heroin and methadone. They are commonly prescribed to cancer patients, patients with chronic back pain, and patients recovering from surgery. Of these, OxyContin is heavily abused because it is available in high does and when ingested, it produces an intense high similar to heroin. According to surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 974 people or 2.1% of Arizona's 46,010 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 4310 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 130,000 or 2.86% of Arizona's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use in the past year. There were also studies that showed 4.3% of high school adolescents had used heroin at some point in their lives.
Looking for help with addiction to Heroin 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.
It’s true that people in Arizona value their independence and freedom. If you or a loved one live with Drug addiction, you know how Heroin can seem to rob you of your freedom and life choices. Choosing treatment can feel like your only options are to be a prisoner to the drug or to the treatment program. Finally, people in Arizona have another, more effective option that restores freedom without fear of relapse and without having to dedicate yourself to working a program-the non 12 Step program at Freedom Model Retreats. You can finally get beyond not only addiction but also the lifelong fear of relapse promoted by treatment.
Most people think of relapse as a slippery slope to ending sobriety. Treatment has worked hard to get that idea across because it not only places fear in people if they use again but it promotes the idea of relapse as an inevitable part of a lifetime cycle of relapse and recovery. At first glance, this seems plausible especially when you become aware that in the state of Arizona of the 4,082 people who sought treatment for Heroin, 77.3% or 3,155 relapsed. The good news is that treatment is not the only option and a proven effective alternative exists.
