    Man Concerned About Coworker’s Alcohol Addiction

    Caller: 31-year old man calling on behalf of his coworker

    Problem: Alcohol addiction

    Seeking: Rehab options for alcohol addiction

    Reason(s): According to the man, he is concerned about one of his coworkers who confided in him that he is struggling with substance abuse. He said that he noticed that his coworker was increasingly erratic and lethargic, but did not truly understand the depth of the problem until he was forced to work with his coworker on a project. He said, “I honestly do not know this guy very well, he has been here for about six months, maybe a little less, and he has become increasingly weird. When I smelled booze on his breath, I actually just confronted him. I don’t know why I did that, but I felt like it was time to speak out – even if it was none of my business.” He said that the coworker admitted to having struggled with adjusting to the new job and the new location. The man said that his coworker moved to their location for work and does not have any real friends or family nearby. The caller said, “Because he does not have anyone else and no one seems to know what type of trouble he is in, I felt that I should at least bring it up. I don’t know what possessed me to do so or why I felt like I needed to make this call, but it felt like the right thing to do… Now I just need to know where to direct him for help”.

    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.
