    Man Needs Treatment For Brother-In-Law With Heroin Addiction

    Caller: 36-year old man calling on behalf of brother-in-law

    Problem: Heroin addiction

    Seeking: Long-term inpatient treatment program

    Reason(s): The man is seeking treatment on behalf of his brother-in-law who has struggled with heroin addiction for the better part of five years. According to the man, his wife has told her brother that she would refuse to let him see their newborn son, something that the brother-in-law is extremely upset about. He said, “I have accepted that I have a deadbeat for a brother-in-law, sometimes he comes around and asks my wife for money. He will also ask me for money, saying that because I married his sister, I am somehow responsible for him as well. However, my wife finally decided to lock her brother out of her life, unless he decided to get clean.” He suggests that while he feels it is still an unfair burden on him and his wife, he would agree to seek out the best possible treatment for his brother-in-law. The man said, “I have done some research, not necessarily because I care about him, but because I love my wife. I want to make sure that I get him in somewhere where he will actually succeed. I read that he might need long-term treatment in order to make lasting changes. Whatever it is going to take, I want to know what we can do to best prepare him so he does not relapse.”

    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.
