    Man Worried Friend’s Cocaine Addiction Problematic

    Caller: 22-year old man calling on behalf of his friend

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Alternative, non-12 step rehab options for cocaine abuse

    Reason(s): The man is concerned that the recreational use of cocaine has become a long-term, serious issue for one of their best friends. He said his friends would enjoy going out to ‘party’ on the weekend, but has been unable to keep his use recreational. He states, “I am not going to pretend I am a boy scout, I have tried cocaine a few times, and I actually did enjoy it. However, I have never once felt the need to use it during the week or when I just do not have the money for it. However, my friend has been struggling with what appears to be a dependence on the stuff ever since he started using rather heavily. He no longer confines his use to the weekends; he is actively using the drug on weekdays as well.” The man is afraid that his friend is not only wreaking havoc on his personal life, professional career, and his health, but will also start struggling financially. The man admits that he has seen his friend struggle for too long now, and realizes that without professional help, nothing is going to change. He wants to find his friend alternative rehabilitation options that can help get to the underlying cause of his addiction.

    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.
