    Woman Calling On Behalf Of Stepdaughter Struggling With Cocaine Addiction

    Caller: 39-year-old calling on behalf of her 25-year-old stepdaughter

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Treatment options for cocaine addiction

    Reason(s): Woman said that after talking to her husband, she realized that at a young age, the stepdaughter was devastated by her parent’s divorce. Shortly after the divorce, the stepdaughter started using marijuana recreationally. However, caller states that as the stepdaughter grew older, the crowds she hung around with, changed. This is when the stepdaughter was slowly introduced to more illicit drugs; cocaine in particular. The caller goes on to say, “Her father said he knew something was wrong after the divorce; her whole look, attitude, and demeanor changed.” However, as her attitude became more of a problem, the stepdaughter was eventually kicked out of the house. The woman believes the stepdaughter wants to find some sort of treatment for her cocaine addiction, but has nowhere to go and no one to turn to. Most of her immediate family completely avoids her and pretends she doesn’t even exist because of her drug problems. The step-mom said that before she decided to make the call for help she found out that the stepdaughter was discovering new ways of taking the drug, such as smoking and occasionally even injecting it. She believes that the false feelings of euphoria from the drugs have alienated the stepdaughter from reality. She would like to see her in a program that will get rid of her cravings for the drug. She said, “if no one else is going to step up to the plate and seek out help for her, then I will.”

    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.
