    Single Mother Of Small Child Needs Proof Before Going To Rehabilitation

    Caller: Mother of 21 year old woman

    Problem: Cocaine and ecstasy addiction

    Seeking: Independently proven quality and professional rehab center

    Reason(s): The daughter had a child at age 18 and the father died when she was only four months pregnant. The young mother and child lives with her mother and have never been out on her own. The young mother is employed part-time as a waitress at a local restaurant to support her drug habit. After she leaves work, she goes to purchase drugs and hangs out with other drug users until she is out of money which sometimes can be days at a time. After the birth of her child, the young mother went into a major depression and began snorting cocaine. She then started to use Ecstasy pills when partying and now takes the pills daily to suppress the pain of losing her child’s father. The young mother leaves all responsibility of her child with her mother who provides all financial assistance and totally ignores her child’s existence. Mother is seeking a non-traditional therapeutic rehabilitation because the daughter has already seen a psychiatrist and only seems as if their method of help was to provide prescription medication. The mother has finally given the daughter the choice to either enter rehab or move out of her home and lose custody of her daughter. The young woman must attend out-of-state rehab and not return home until fully clean and sober. The daughter has agreed and is willing to enter an inpatient rehabilitation procedure if the program can prove its effectiveness.

    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.
