    Man Seeks Long-Term Rehab For Cocaine-Addicted Wife

    Caller: 39-year old man calling on behalf of his wife

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Long-term inpatient rehab options for cocaine dependence

    Reason(s): The husband says that he has been with his wife for almost 15 years now and he does not know the woman that he wakes up to most mornings. According to the man, he is considering a divorce if his wife refuses to enter into treatment as agreed upon or if her behavior does not change. According to the husband, his wife did not even drink when they originally met, but she has started hanging around some new girlfriends that he does not care for. He said, “These women are all in their mid-thirties and single, and for some reason they got her involved in their nighttime partying. At first I thought it would be alright and that I was just being difficult because I wanted to keep her at home, but now I regret not having stepped in sooner.” He admits his wife has tried to stay sober for prolonged periods of time, but always ends up relapsing. He says, “My mother lives six hours away, and I work full days, so I obviously can’t watch her throughout the day. This is very frustrating because I would love a chance to make sure that she does not relapse, but I just can’t do it. We both agree that something needs to change and if she cannot get better, I don’t know how long I can handle this.”

    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.
