    Man Seeks Help For Cocaine-Addicted Ex-Girlfriend

    Caller: 34-year old man on behalf of his friend

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Long-term inpatient rehab options

    Reason(s): The man wants to find help for his former girlfriend who is struggling with a cocaine addiction that has spanned nearly a decade. He says that he knows his ex-girlfriend started using in college and has continuously relapsed into using again throughout the five years they have known each other. The man said, “There is something very frustrating about wanting to get someone sober, having them sober for a month and then to have them relapse out of what appears to be almost nothing.” The man states that he knows that his girlfriend entered into rehabilitation before, but only stayed for two weeks. He admits that the two weeks had a positive effect, but she did not adhere to the changes that she promised she would make. The man said, “I think that she needs more time to get used to the idea of being sober, to get past the initial concept of sobriety. To understand that just because you are extremely happy or extremely sad does not mean that you have to resort to drug use.” He wants to find a long-term, inpatient rehabilitation center that could help her get back on her feet. He prefers a treatment facility within a 30-mile radius of her home, but said he is flexible.

    1. im seeking the same answers for my boyfriend. better call him an exboyfriend, by the way. i’ve had enough. what a terrible waste of talent. and so young! no one would guess it coming as he’s from an affluent family, went to college, has a good career ahead… he’s one of the kindest, most creative souls i’ve ever come across. terrible that he’d be hooked on coke. we could talk about everything under the sun, but when i suggest he seek help, he won’t. and say it’s all under control. what should i do? is it fine to call the cops when he has friends over? like they do coke frequently in his apartment. so maybe then they could all be cuffed.

    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.
