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.
