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.
Finding help for Heroin addiction can seem overwhelming. Especially if you or a loved one has been to treatment before. You may have been told you will have to live in a cycle of relapse and recovery for the rest of your life. That’s simply not true! There is a solution to the treatment cycle-the non 12 Step solution.
People in California know that addiction to Heroin 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.
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 California alone, of the 38,285 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 29,594 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
