Substance Abuse Treatment
Katie Brooks Says...
I understand your dilemma. The detox process is just the first step in your recovery. You will definitely need an after care program. The Salvation Army is highly religious and there are some requirements to the program that you should make sure you could commit to. If you are highly religious or do not mind being counseled in this way, then I recommend saving some money. On the other hand, if you are not religious this might be a distraction for you.
An Intensive Outpatient Program will be expensive, but you will most likely get evidenced based treatments from highly skilled professionals. It sounds to me like you have a serious and life-threatening addiction to both cocaine and alcohol. I think that your life will be a wonderful worthwhile investment. Substance abuse treatment can be very effective if done correctly, but it takes patience and persistence. Make some time to get sober... you won't regret it!
