    Treatment Needed For Brother-In-Law’s Alcohol Addiction

    Caller: 44-year old man calling on behalf of 35-year old brother-in-law

    Problem: Alcohol addiction

    Seeking: Treatment options and methods to get him to go

    Reason(s): The caller is requesting information about potential long-term, inpatient treatment options for alcohol addiction. The caller is asking about treatment for his brother-in-law who got married to the caller’s sister within the last twelve months. Caller said, “He drinks way too damn much, he drinks so much that he blacks out and doesn’t even remember where he finally wakes up. Now the truth is that if he wants to risk his own life and drink himself stupid, that is all right with me. However, the problem is that my sister already has a five-year old son from a previous relationship, and I don’t need him setting that kind of example around him.” Even though there has been no indication of physical violence after the consumption of alcohol, the caller is worried that continued abuse is eventually going to lead to future problems. The caller said, “It is very simple, until he gets off the booze he should not be there for a while and work on himself. I believe that he going somewhere to do that is the perfect idea. After discussing it with my sister I know that she agrees, but I also understand that she is not necessarily comfortable making that first call.” He wants possible inpatient treatment options to present to both his sister and brother-in-law.

    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.
