    Woman Seeks Help For Best Friend’s Heroin Addiction

    Caller: 31-year old woman calling on behalf of her best friend

    Problem: Heroin addiction

    Seeking: Long-term rehab center that specializes in heroin addiction

    Reason(s): The woman is concerned about her friend hitting absolute rock bottom after a long-time struggle with heroin addiction. She said that her friend has struggled with addiction for years, but it has finally cost her more than she ever thought imaginable; she has lost her job, her husband, and is now losing the children because the husband is filing for divorce and taking the children with him. The husband has threatened to have her drug tested by the courts if she does try to claim guardian status. The woman said, “People have warned her about this time and time again, her husband has warned her that this would happen if she continued to use, and she kept on using without even the slightest hesitation, at least not that we saw. Now she has lost everything that she had and she is alone – it is a shame that she had to fall this far to be able to get help, but at least she is finally open to it.” She says that she wants her friend to get help, but also realizes that even despite her best intentions now, long-term rehabilitation is necessary. She is actively seeking a possible rehab option that would last for a minimum of three months.

    1. whoever called should read this: 3 MONTHS AINT ENOUGH!!! my sister was addicted to heroin which started from prescription drugs & alcohol problems. she overdosed a few weeks after she lost her job, boyfriend, herself… so we got her into rehab that was supposed to equip her with stuff to live life anew. what it turned out was it was just a break. later i learned (too late, sadly) that it was just a break indeed. because she got into a “religious” type of rehab, it didnt really help. we grew up in a liberated community, and i really dont think she was ready for all those bible-based help. soon after she was out, she was back on the streets like a beggar. now she is finally “healing” in a better rehab, something called none twelve steps, and with our last conversation, she sounded sane, directed & hopeful. accdg to hershey, the last rehab was too short, too false & doesnt help much except load her with unfounded guilt!!! were hoping this one’s better and my sister will finally be off that struggle.

    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.
