    Man Wants His Cocaine Addicted Wife To Get Help

    Caller: 38-year old man calling on behalf of his wife

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Long term inpatient rehab program

    Reason(s): The man wants to help his wife make a lasting change in her life. According to the caller, Child Protective Services took their daughter from them and they may never be granted custody. He said, “My wife has struggled with a cocaine addiction for years now. When we had our daughter, I figured that bringing a child into the world might be enough to help, enough to get her to sober up, but it never did. She certainly decreased use during the pregnancy, but according to the doctors, my daughter may have lasting trauma because of the use during pregnancy.” He admits that while he does not actively use illicit substances, he feels as though he is responsible for the problem, at least in part. He said, “I am not the one using, but I cannot blame this on her. I have been flat out told that I might never see my daughter again. I might never hold her in my arms again. That is something I have to deal with for the rest of my life, my lack of action might have cost me my daughter. However, I cannot …I will not have this be for nothing. I cannot picture a world where I lost my daughter and nothing changes.” He is seeking a long-term rehabilitation program for his wife. He said that he is worried about her physical and mental health because of years of drug abuse and this traumatic event. He wants a program where she can go and take as long as it takes to get her clean and sober.

    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.
