    Woman Is Seeking Help For Neighbor Abusing Alcohol

    Caller: 37-year old woman calling on behalf of her neighbor

    Problem: Alcohol addiction

    Seeking: Non-traditional drug and alcohol recovery programs

    Reason(s): The woman is concerned about her neighbor who may be struggling with alcohol addiction. She states that when she moved into her apartment nine months ago, she believed her neighbor to be a social drinker. However, as the weather got nicer and her neighbor spent more and more time outside in the yard, she began to realize that her neighbor not only drank a lot, but also regularly drank to excess. The woman states, “I have heard him snore loudly before, he was just passed out on his hammock and nothing I could do would wake him up. He recently managed to cut himself on his own sliding glass door. What happened is that he managed to put his hands through the glass because he was too drunk to realize what he was doing.” According to the woman, that is the moment she decided to step in and sit her neighbor down for a discussion about possible alcohol addiction. The woman says, “I really did not believe I had a right to judge him, but I wanted him to know that there was someone who cares and who wants him to get help. I promised him that I would be the one to look for help if he stopped drinking. I am not sure if he is keeping his side of the bargain, but I want him to get help if it is available.” She is looking for non-traditional drug and alcohol recovery programs capable of treating moderate to severe alcoholism.

    Most Insurance Accepted

    The traditional 12 step approach looks at drug and alcohol addiction as an incurable disease. This disheartens many and makes people feel as though they are at a constant disadvantage when battling addiction. Non-traditional programs treat drug and alcohol addiction as a serious problem that can be fully addressed and resolved through treatment that is based on science and empirical evidence.
    The issue with 12 step programs is that they were the first real drug and alcohol addiction treatment offered to the public. Because many realize that addiction is something that they cannot overcome by themselves, popularity boomed quickly. While the research now shows 12 step programs are almost as effective as doing nothing at all, they are still the first name associated with drug addiction by virtue of "being first."
    Not all non 12 step programs are the same, which makes it important to find the right program for you or your loved one. It is important to find a long-term, holistic treatment option that treats each patient as an individual.
    It is impossible to determine exactly how much non 12 step treatment costs without knowing more specifics about the prospective patient. Some programs charge more than others do. This again highlights the importance of finding a program that not only meets your needs, but is also affordable. Fortunately, many programs work with a sliding pay scale or allow you to pay for treatment in installments.
    This depends on the programs and on your insurance. More and more insurance companies are realizing the need for proper alternative drug treatment and extending coverage. This is due to the better results offered by a holistic approach and the financial benefits of most patients not relapsing.
