    Girlfriend’s Addiction To Xanax Affecting Their Relationship

    Caller: 33-year old boyfriend

    Problem: Xanax addiction

    Seeking: Rehab options for Xanax

    Reason(s): According to the man, his girlfriend’s prescribed Xanax use is becoming more and more of a problem in their relationship. According to him, his girlfriend was actually prescribed Xanax to combat anxiety, but years of continuous use have made it so, that she needs more and more of the medication. The man said, “It is becoming standard for her to run out of Xanax more than a week before she gets her refills. Because she cannot do without it, it means that she has to go buy some from her scumbag friends who just happen to have some laying around. Her monthly medication now costs $20 or so to fill, but she will spend three times that getting it off the street, oftentimes I have to give her money to pay for it”. According to the caller, he has tried to address the situation before but has been unsuccessful. “She just ignores what I have to say, she pretends she hears me, and claims that she cares, but then just ignores it and continues using. I don’t think it is necessarily malicious, because I do think she is unable to stop.” The caller wants advice on how he should approach the situation, whether he should put forth an ultimatum and whether that would prove beneficial or harmful to her. He also wanted to know what rehab options are available for Xanax addiction.

    1. hey man i feel ur troubles. my gf of 3 years has the same problem. didn’t know until it was getting in the way of her job and social life. and its taking its toll on our relationship. we’ve been living for over a year now and well she’s a good woman. artistic and creative, and cares for me a lot. i think theres the big issue of trust now bec. i know she’s sneaking on stuff, even becoming friends with prolly folks who help her find xanax. devastating bec. i’ve always thought about walking her down the aisle and thats exactly why i moved in with her. the thing is when i tell her to stop and that she needs help and all, my gf would throw fits and go on to enumerate reasons why she’s taking it. the reasons are incredible for starters. and when it gets to seeking help, my gf would say she can handle it. and for maybe a day she can. then she goes back. threatened to leave a few times unless she gets help and didn’t work. of course it would be heartless to leave her now cuz i know she doesn’t have anyone else to run to and all. and it would be a big blow. but yeah, i’m seeking means to get her into rehab. dread the day i’d find her ODing or something. for now, ive just about have enough to get her into rehab. and im gonna do just that. hang in there, man. help her get through.

    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.
