    Man Concerned Angry Father-In-Law Is An Alcoholic

    Caller: 37-year old man calling on behalf of his father-in-law

    Problem: Alcohol addiction

    Seeking: Alternative rehab treatment that is long-term

    Reason(s): According to the man, his father-in-law has become increasingly violent and belligerent when he drinks. Because of the increased frequency of outbursts, he believes that his father-in-law is struggling with an alcohol addiction and he would like to know what he could do to help. He said “I really don’t care if my father-in-law is a [CENSORED] to me, I can take it. However, I do take issue when he does it to his daughter, my wife, and we have a 3-year old son around the house. I am not necessarily worried that he might hurt my son, but that type of language and behavior just does not need to happen around someone so impressionable.” The man said that his wife agreed that her dad appears to be struggling with alcohol dependence, something that his father before him also struggled with before passing away. He said, “I realize that addiction is a serious issue that some people cannot change by themselves, but I need him to change. If that means that we have to fork over a lot of money to help him get better and get him into an alternative rehabilitation facility for alcohol abuse, so be it. But I do know one thing, if this continues; he is not going to see his grandson anymore.”

    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.
