    Husband Develops Cocaine Habit Dealing With Daily Stress

    Caller: 34-year-old wife calling on behalf of 40-year-old husband

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Viable treatment options

    Reason(s): Caller is asking about possible treatment options for her husband. She says that she thought they had the prototypical American household; family, children, a dog and the house. Caller said her husband had a good full-time job and appeared to be quite content with life. She said that she found out her husband had been using cocaine to escape the pressures of everyday life. “I don’t know when it started, he really does not want to talk about it, but without telling me, he started using cocaine to help him deal with everything in his life. He has never been a big talker, perhaps this was his outlet.” Caller says that while they were previously in stable financial condition, she has only recently found out that her husband is juggling credit card advances in order to pay for his addiction. She said, “We were not upper class by any stretch of the imagination, but we were financially independent, now just looking at the credit card bills he has been hiding for a long time makes me sick to my stomach”. According to the caller, she wants to make sure that her husband gets the treatment that he needs to live a sober life and only then will she decide where their marriage stands. Provided the caller with a few local addresses that may be viable treatment options.

    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.
