    Man Wants Treatment Options For Neighbor’s Alcohol Addiction

    Caller: 37-year old man calling on behalf of female neighbor

    Problem: Alcohol addiction

    Seeking: Rehab options, preferably non-faith based

    Reason(s): Caller wants to know whether treatment for his neighbor is a possibility. Caller states that after the neighbor’s husband passed away from cancer, it seems that she has simply “given up.” Caller says that the female barely leaves the home anymore and when the caller has attempted to go next door to talk to her, she refuses to answer the door, though he can see her sitting in her living room through the window. He says, “I am not going to tell you that we are or have been very close, because we’re not, but when someone is drinking themselves to death right next door, I think the only right thing to do is actually take action.” Caller says that he knows both the neighbor and her husband were not religious, and caller does not believe that a traditional 12-step program is going to be much use to her. He said, “She already refuses to leave the house, why would anyone think that she would leave the house in order to sit and talk about her problems? Especially when she refuses to leave the house altogether and won’t even answer the door?” Provided the caller with two local instances that may be able to help or at least provide some more information on non-religious rehab facilities.

    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.
