    Son Seeking Help For Mother Addicted To Benzos

    Caller: 32-year old son calling on behalf of his mother

    Problem: Benzodiazepines addiction

    Seeking: Drug rehab options for Benzos with possible intervention

    Reason(s): The son has concerns about his mother’s growing dependence on benzodiazepines. She fears that she might be struggling with benzodiazepines addiction, and has not been herself for a long period of time. He said that his mother has become lethargic, careless and does not appear to care a great deal about anything other than getting more of the same substance. He also said, “I realize that it might be really strange for a kid, even a 32-year old kid, to call someone like you for professional help for a parent, but I am not sure where else to turn.” According to the son, things have become progressively worse in the last few months, including an incident where his mother hit a few carts in a supermarket parking lot. At the time, she was impaired and under the influence of benzodiazepines. He said, “I realize that she is old enough to make her own decisions, but I want to make sure that I do everything possible to get her into treatment. I need to know what type of treatment program is going to get her the best option in relation to drug rehab, I need to make sure that she actually has a fighting chance to overcome her own problems, otherwise I fear that she might not realize how serious her problems are until they consume her”.

    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.
