Seeking: Treatment centers that specialize in cocaine addiction
Reason(s): Caller is a 19-year-old female and is the daughter of the woman dating the person struggling with the cocaine addiction. She says that her mother’s boyfriend has always abused cocaine as long as they have known each other (about two years) but recently the use of cocaine has become more common and problematic. According to the daughter, she has found the boyfriend sitting in the bathroom with an elevated body temperature and an increased heart rate, repeating himself over and over again. She said “He was just sitting there under the cold water, trying to cool himself off, he kept saying he used too much and I was afraid he would die right there, he kept saying he thought his heart would explode.” She has realized that her own mother is not going to make him go into recovery, but she also knows that unless something changes, there is no guarantee that he is going to make it through the end of the year. She wants more information in relation to treating cocaine addiction and has requested the numbers of treatment centers that are designed to deal with patients that have a cocaine addiction.

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.
