    Woman Wants Help For Roommate With Cocaine Addiction

    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.

    1. I can see how she is concerned about her friend. But I don’t know if treatment will work until the addicted person is committed to changing.

    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.
