In recent surveys preformed by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), 23 or 0.2% of South Dakota's 13,360 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for heroin. Not including the 4,267 state residents who admitted themselves into treatment for either opiates or more than one drug. Studies also show that 14,000 or 2.23% of South Dakota' s citizens reported needing but not receiving treatment fort illicit drug and alcohol use in the past year. Surveys indicate that 4% of male high school seniors polled had tried heroin at least one time in the past year. Heroin is typically available only in personal use quantities in South Dakota.
If you or a loved one are living with Heroin addiction, you already know you’re not alone. Searching for the right solution can be difficult and discouraging. So many people seem to need help and often they return again and again to treatment. If treatment works, why are people getting worse instead of better? The answer is treatment doesn’t work but luckily there is a truly effective way to end addiction- Non 12 Step.
Most people in South Dakota who are looking for help with Heroin are hoping to find a permanent solution to Drug addiction. Traditional treatment , in the form of 12 Steps and rehabs, is not an effective solution for long term success. In 2014, of the 73 people looking for help, 56 or 77.3% will relapse one or more times and return again to the same treatment with the same result.
Relapse is often spoken of an absolute certainty when discussing Heroin addiction. Unfortunately, most people who attend treatment not only are taught this but expect to experience it and it can then be a self fulfilling prophecy! Treatment promotes the idea of relapse because treatment doesn’t work. In South Dakota alone, of the 73 people who look for help with Heroin addiction and go to treatment, 77.3% or 56 relapse. When you tell someone to expect what you have just given them to fail and then teach them it is their fault when it does, you have a return customer. Treatment focuses on abstinence and fear rather than helping people to recognize their own power to help themselves and move beyond addiction. Of course treatment fails but it is important to remember that doesn’t mean you or a loved one fails if relapse occurs. Instead it is time to look for a proven effective alternative that can work for long term success.
