    Woman Is Worried About Girlfriend’s Cocaine Relapse

    Caller: 29-year old woman calling on behalf of her girlfriend

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Long-term inpatient program, non 12 step rehab treatment

    Reason(s): The Woman is concerned that her girlfriend is relapsing to cocaine use after a prolonged period of sobriety. The woman is concerned that her significant others’ recent actions may lead to self-destructive behavior or lead to eventual physical and/or mental problems. According to the woman, the girlfriend was clean for six months before relapsing two weeks ago. She said, “She had gone through the 12-step treatment model and still went to those meetings, but it turns out that it did not change anything. They kept telling her to call her sponsor if she felt tempted, well guess what, when she finally got really stressed and tempted, she did not call a sponsor, or me for that matter. She called someone who she knew would have cocaine on them.” She states that she did not hear from her significant other for 48 hours before she finally came back to their apartment. She said, “The second I saw her I was relieved, but judging by her eyes and her nose I immediately knew where she had been. It turned out that she had been up for two days. I relented last time and agreed to let her try the 12-step model, but this time we are doing it right. I need to know where I can find a long-term inpatient program so she can actually make a difference instead of sitting in a [expletive] circle.” She is looking for long-term recovery programs within a 75-mile radius of their home.

    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.
