    Friend Struggling With Intensifying Cocaine Addiction

    Caller: 34-year old woman calling on behalf of her friend

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Inpatient treatment facility for cocaine

    Reason(s): The caller is requesting assistance for her friend who is struggling with a dependency to cocaine. According to the caller, her friend developed her cocaine addiction after struggling with abuse and other personal issues for years. The caller stated, “I know that both her and her husband did not have a great relationship, he was domineering, abusive etc. I know that on the weekends, her husband would go out with his friends to get drunk, and she would spend her weekend in a cocaine haze. She said it was the only thing that made her feel better.” However, the caller states that her friend’s recreational use to numb any sensations of being alone quickly turned into reliance on the drug. The woman states, “She realized that she started to have issues with dependence once she recognized that she could not wait until the weekend rolled around, and then she stopped waiting for the weekend altogether. She would use on Friday afternoon and then gradually kept using until Monday afternoon.” According to the woman, her friend and husband have since agreed upon a temporary split, which was the catalyst for the caller telling her friend she needed to seek help for this growing dependency. She is interested in two different inpatient facilities within a 50-mile radius of her friend.

    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.
