Caller: 23-year old woman calling on behalf of her roommate
Problem: Cocaine addiction
Seeking: Rehab treatment options for cocaine and interventionist
Reason(s): The woman is requesting more information about what can be done if you have someone involuntarily committed for drug addiction. She said that her roommate has shown signs of having issues with cocaine addiction, and she wants to help before it becomes an all-consuming problem that may not be reversible. She said, “She was always the funny girl, fun to go out with, a blast at parties, but she seems to have taken that to a new extreme, her drug addiction is becoming so serious that I think she is actively using throughout the week and she needs time off during the day to be able to recover and sleep”. She said that her roommate keeps being fired from her jobs, but will always find another waitressing or bartending job, even if it means working late into the night. She said, “I think that the atmosphere that she is in is also detrimental to her addiction, she is constantly around people drinking, partying etc. So I am concerned that it might not be in her best interest to continue to have those types of jobs.” She wants to know how she could resolve the situation and get her roommate help. While she wants to help her roommate, she also believes that her current behavior cannot continue unchecked for much longer.
