HOW DOES THIS APPLY TO A RECOVERY HOUSE SITUATION. What benifits does this practice offer???And what message does this deliver to the men in this meeting. After all its 4 men to every woman.

I only gave this one star because you have to.This place is such a joke-they're all about money.I was there many years ago,& thankfully,I got kicked out.Funny,because they'd accepted me on a Sunday,when they don't ever do intakes.Why?Because of my good heath insurance.And I'd found out later that you have some 'interview' to see if you're serious about being there.I didn't have that.Why?Because of my good insurance they wanted to take full advantage of.If you've got an Access card,they take it (which I understand it's part of the 'rent',but they shouldn't force people to do that,& I'm not even sure if that's legal..)Also,they have 'IP' clients,(people w/an ankle bracelet),& one told me when she was discharged,she got this list of all this stuff she & the other IP clients were supposed to get;clothing vouchers,money,tokens,etc.,but they got none of that-they kept it all,gave them donated clothes,& wrote it off that they had received it.The place is total fraud.And as much money as they rake in,they have mattresses that are like,100 yrs. old w/old cereal boxes holding them up for support.And they just make you do dumb stuff for the sake of doing dumb stuff-like making you walk 25 blocks to a meeting ('you walked that long to cop!' Um,no I didn't-there's this thing called public transportation,cars,taxis)or getting up at 5am when you don't have breakfast til 8am,or volunteering you to do things you didn't agree to.I got written up because I fell asleep during a movie ('Next Friday' btw,a movie about weed!).Maybe if they didn't force you to wake up at 5am for no reason I wouldn't have,& sorry if I wasn't interested in a movie about weed.You can give me the line 'you can't always have it your way' all you want,if something doesn't have a point to it,I know the person's just saying that because they know it,don't have a good argument,& lack intelligence.Actually,all the 'case-workers' do,they're just glorified babysitters for adults w/no degree in anything,except they were once addicts.But that doesn't make them qualified to be a case-worker.The sign outside one of their buildings makes me laugh 'One day at a time,one person at a time,' or what ever.They forgot to add 'One dollar at a time!'.
Tips & Advices
  • Talk about specific consequences of their drinking.
  • Choose a time soon after the person experiences a drinking-related problem (missing a shift at work, for example).
  • Do not threaten, guilt, lecture, preach, or use negative labels.
  • Do not try to discuss alcoholism when the person is intoxicated.
Therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists who specialize in the condition can all diagnose and treat alcoholism. People with alcohol-related concerns can also consult their general practitioner, who will refer them to a specialist.
Detoxification is a medically supervised period of alcohol withdrawal to allow the body to purge itself. A doctor or treatment specialist closely monitors a patient to ensure the symptoms of withdrawal do not cause harm. Side effects of alcohol detoxification include:
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Tremors
  • Nausea
  • Sleep issues
  • Paranoia or anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
The cost of addiction treatment varies depending on the type of facility, amenities offered, treatment provided, and size and length of the program. Detoxification ranges from $1,000 to $15,000. Inpatient facilities cost anywhere from $6,000 to $30,000 for a 30-day program and include detoxing. Outpatient programs can cost $500 per session.
Outpatient alcoholism treatment is a part-time form of rehabilitation. Patients continue their normal lives during the day and return to the treatment facility several times per week. Outpatient treatment is generally cheaper than inpatient and can be helpful for people with less severe addictions. Inpatient treatment programs require patients to stay at the facility 24/7 until the completion of the program. They provide a highly controlled environment for patients to overcome their addictions without the distractions or temptations of everyday life. These clinics provide round-the-clock medical care and often include hours of group and personal therapy. Inpatient programs are beneficial for people with severe addictions or those who have overdosed.
