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.
