Pregnant Woman Consuming Large Amounts Of Alcohol...
Caller: Husband of pregnant wife
Problem: Heavy alcohol abuse while pregnant
Seeking: Safe alcohol detox and rehab program for pregnant women
Reason(s): The wife, who is in the process of getting a divorce from her husband is also several months pregnant and is regularly consuming alcohol in very large quantity. Besides worried for her health, the husband is terrified that her alcohol consumption could have degenerative effects on the newborn baby. She says that she is not drinking anymore, but he has found wine bottles in her apartment. He now wants her to get professional help so that her drinking does not harm her or their baby. He wants her to undergo a safe detoxification and rehab program; but he does not know what can she do that would not have an adverse impact on the child’s health. While there are many alcohol treatment methods available, there aren’t that many programs that can properly treat a woman that is pregnant without some risk being put on the child. For the safety and health of their child she has agreed to a long-term inpatient detox program which will closely monitor the health of the woman and child while slowly eliminating the dependency. She will be in a comfortable stress-free environment and will learn how to cope with life’s stresses without feeling the need to consume alcohol. The husband has agreed to enroll her in this treatment program so that the child and the mother are both safe.

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.
