    Father of Two Using Cocaine Unable To Quit Due To Long Term Use

    Caller: Wife of 34-year-old male

    Problem: Husband’s cocaine addiction

    Seeking: long-term, inpatient treatment in Indiana or Illinois for husband’s cocaine addiction

    Reason(s): The couple has two children (a 6-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl) and has been married more than a decade – yet the wife is seriously considering leaving the husband, getting a divorce, and filing for sole custody. She stated that the sole reason behind this is the drug addiction. Husband used cocaine as nightlife enhancement during his college years and decided to experiment with the drug again several years later as something new and exciting. According to his wife, the experimentation eventually spiraled to increased use that led to addiction. Though the husband has said before that he was willing to stay clean, he has been unable to do so. Oftentimes he has said that the temptation was too great even after trying his hardest. The husband has completed traditional rehab before and is not interested in doing so again stating, “no one cares about you aside from the first week anyway.” After researching on the internet to look for alternatives, the wife has agreed to give long-term, inpatient treatment for cocaine a chance before filing for divorce. Wife would prefer a long-term, inpatient treatment in a neighboring state (Illinois or Indiana) to create some distance that would ensure that the treatment does not become public knowledge in the community and damage the children.

    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.
