Caller: 24-year old man (roommate)
Problem: Roommate’s cocaine addiction
Seeking: Long-term inpatient rehab
Reason(s): The man is wondering about drug treatment options for cocaine addiction. He had been worried about his roommate’s increased use, but a recent scary incident made it obvious to both parties that something needed to change, immediately. The caller stated, “I knew he used cocaine but he mostly uses by himself or if he is around friends, they leave together. Therefore, it was not something that I was too worried about. However, just a few nights ago things became a little different. Apparently he used too much or bad stuff, I do not know and I do not care. He started freaking out saying he was going to have a heart attack and that I could not take him to a hospital. So we sat there, him in the bathtub and me next to him, until six in the morning when I had to be at work by nine. That made it obvious to me that this [expletive] does affect me, when he uses.” The caller said that his roommate understands something needs to change, but is still shaken about the incident and not sure where to turn. He is interested in a possible detox facility that is nearby their city, which would be able to provide long-term, inpatient rehab for cocaine addiction.
