Caller: 34-year old man calling on behalf of his friend
Problem: Cocaine addiction
Seeking: Long-term inpatient rehab program
Reason(s): The man was rather devastated when first getting on the phone, he realized that his friend had once again relapsed into cocaine use and is unsure what he should be doing next. He said, “She was doing so well for such a long time. She had gotten a job, was a few months sober, she was doing well. Then she just stopped answering the phone one day before it was time for work and I knew exactly what was going on.” According to the man, he had been with his friend through countless relapses before, but does not believe that he is physically or mentally capable of dealing with this latest relapse. The man said, “I want to leave her in good hands, I really do want to make sure that she is doing OK, but at the same time I am exhausted. I need someone to help her get the treatment she needs, because I clearly am not able to help.” He said that professional, long-term inpatient rehab is likely needed, especially because his friend had entered into rehab for drug use before but relapsed the night that she left the facility. He mentioned that the last time it was a two-week program; he is seeking something significantly longer this time around.
