Seeking: Discreet inpatient facility in the surrounding area
Reason(s): Husband has three children with his wife (aged 6, 9, and 10) and is now seriously considering divorce and filing for sole custody of the children. He found out that his wife started using cocaine 24 months ago as a way to release stress and get more energy; but has started using more and more cocaine throughout the day to stay chronically high. The wife has promised several times to stop but finds that she is unable to fight the addiction on her own. Husband considers her behavior when she is not using cocaine to be lethargic and borderline depressed. Because children are involved and husband works full-time, he wants to explore the option of an inpatient treatment facility. Husband has indicated that he has become worried about leaving the children at home with his wife without someone to watch them. Husband has done some research on his own and realizes that insurance will only cover a portion of the expenses but still wants to explore this option. He believes that an inpatient facility would not only remove the cravings, but also leads to less chance for relapse because she would not be tempted by other users that she knows – which is how she started in the first place. Husband would prefer a treatment facility in adjacent Illinois if possible because his wife does not know anyone there but the center would still be close enough to travel to for periodic visits with the kids. However, husband is willing to accept any viable alternative location as long as it remains discreet.

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.
