The numbers keep growing every day for addiction to Heroin. You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV. Politicians keep talking about getting more money for treatment. The question is if treatment worked for Drug addiction, wouldn’t the number of people addicted to Heroin be going down?
Living in Ohio you know the available options for help with Heroin are overwhelmingly treatment based. Since research shows treatment is not the most effective short or long term issue for Drug addiction, it’s time to look beyond treatment and starting thinking about leaving addiction and the fear of relapse behind. Relapse is key to understand so you don’t make the mistake so many people in Ohio do and keep on the treatment treadmill without results.
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 Ohio alone, of the 10,415 people seeking help for Heroin, 77.3% or 8,051 relapse in just one year. If treatment were the only alternative this would be terrible news but luckily there is a proven effective alternative.
