Most Drug Rehabs are 12-step disease model. Majority of the help they provide is ineffective and there are no studies to back the disease model. In the last five years, there has also been an increase in the number of drug rehabs who claim to be "holistic". These drug rehab clinics have simply repackaged the disease model by calling the problem a "choice based dependency." Dependency, although sounding much less intimidating than "disease," means the same thing! Heroin is something you chose to do, if you are confused about this statement call one of our family consultants and learn why.
In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 27,623 or 16.2% of California's 170,299 Drug and Alcohol abusers that admitted themselves into treatment for Heroin. Not including the 19,597 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 861,000 or 3% of California's citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment for illicit drug use in the past year. There were also studies that showed 2.8% of high school adolescents had used heroin at some point in their lives. The increased availability of high purity heroin that can be snorted allows a new, younger population to use heroin without a syringe and needle. Drug treatment specialists stated that these new heroin users ingest large amounts of heroin and become quickly addicted. Law enforcement officials normally encounter ethnic West African and Southeast Asian nationals in the distribution and transportation of Asian heroin. California does not have any noticeable heroin abuse in its Asian communities. Reports that high purity Colombian heroin is now available in the counties surrounding Los Angeles is supported by the recent seizure of 200 grams of Colombian heroin by law enforcement in Ventura County.
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.
If you live in California, you already know the rates of Heroin addiction are climbing. With so many resources spent on rehabs and traditional treatment, how can the problem be getting worse? In a word: relapse.
Treatment would have you think your options are recovery and relapse. That’s very convenient as those are the options that treatment can promise. Treatment delivers on that promise to the detriment of people seeking help for Heroin. Of those, 38,285 people admitted for treatment, 77.3% or 29,594 relapsed. The proportion of people who return to treatment for relapse goes up as treatment continues. To sum it up, the more treatment you get the more likely you are to relapse! Treatment not only doesn’t work but outcomes for people can get worse with more treatment. Obviously, another more effective option is needed.
