Fitness Model Worried About Co-worker With Cocaine...
Caller: 25-year old female calling on behalf of female co-worker
Problem: Cocaine addiction
Seeking: Treatment options, possibly a holistic bio-physical detox
Reason(s): Caller says that she met this person with the cocaine addiction while working as a fitness model. The caller says it did not take long to notice that her coworker had a habit with cocaine, citing frequent runny noses and constant sniffling. She said that one day she just came right out and asked her co-worker whether she used drugs or not – her co-worker admitted to using cocaine to provide her with energy to work out and help her curb her appetite. After speaking to her coworker a bit more, she found out that her co-worker had been using cocaine for more than a year. Something that had started as occasional, gradually became something she did every time she had a photo shoot, which then became every time she needed energy to work out, which eventually turned into everyday use. After admitting that, the caller says her co-worker broke down in tears saying she did not know how it had gotten so out of hand. Caller states that while she would not necessarily consider her co-worker a good friend, she would like to be able to help where possible. Caller says “all I know about cocaine is what I have seen in movies and TV shows; I know it is addictive, I just don’t know how to help someone stop using it.” Provided the caller with the name and number of a drug treatment facility that specializes in holistic treatment with bio-physical detoxification.

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.
