    College Roommate Has Developed A Codeine With Promethazine Addiction

    Caller: 19-year old man calling on behalf of his college roommate

    Problem: Codeine syrup with Promethazine addiction

    Seeking: Rehab treatment options

    Reason(s): Man is concerned about his roommate’s repeated use of codeine with promethazine syrup. The man states that he found his roommate sipping a strange beverage contained within two Styrofoam cups. After asking his roommate about what he was drinking, he noticed his roommate became rather defensive. The caller stated, “It took me a little while to finally get him to admit that this was the type of codeine syrup that you hear a lot of rappers talk about in their songs. However, I do remember seeing that people died because of it.” The caller stated that he asked his roommate whether he drank a lot of the beverage, to which the roommate admitted he did. According to the caller, his roommate had also tried to stop using before but had experienced insomnia, irritability, and a serious craving for the syrup. After doing some research, the caller said he found out that it is best to withdraw from codeine under the guidance of a professional. The caller said, “I know that school is only just starting again, but I think that it is in both our interest that he gets help as quickly as possible, that way it is healthy for him and no distraction for me.”

    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.
