    Seeking Treatment Options For Wife With Xanax Addiction

    Caller: 36-year old husband calling on behalf of his wife

    Problem: Addiction to Xanax

    Seeking: Long term drug rehab options

    Reason(s): Husband began by saying “You know the type of person that you look at and would not be surprised if they used drugs or alcohol in excess? That is the exact opposite of my wife.” According to him, his wife has been abusing prescription Xanax that she buys from friends who have children that have a legitimate prescription. The caller said that his wife’s store on Etsy, had been doing increasingly well and in order to keep up with the challenges of being a wife, taking care of the household and running an online store all at the same time, she felt as though she needed a little boost. According to the caller, she had been increasingly tired, almost ‘rundown’ over the past few months before she got the first Xanax from a friend. Caller stated, “I am alright with her grabbing a Red Bull in the morning to get going, but when she starts messing around with prescription drugs that were not prescribed for her, you are entering dangerous territory at that point.” He stated that his wife was unwilling to seek out treatment initially, but after making it clear that it would either be divorce or drug rehabilitation, she agreed to look for help. He and his wife are seeking a long-term option that would provide the best possible odds of maintaining lasting sobriety.

    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.
