1. Is Chemical Dependency Treatment affordable?

At the South East Texas Council, YES !!!!
The cost for 30 days of Intensive Residential Treatment is very affordable, significantly less than the deductible/co-pay, for treatment at many hospital programs , which will exceed $ 1000. per day.

5. "My friend/loved one is unwilling to get help...what can I do"?

You may want to call a local 12-Step Group (Alcoholics Anonymous(AlAnon) or Narcotics Anonymous)  and speak with them about having someone from a recovery group coming out to speak with your loved one.

6. "I am a "social-drug user" .... do I have a problem?

There is no such category as a "social drug user".
This is a "smoke-screen" used by alcohol/drug abusers in efforts of minimizing the depths of their "relationship" with mood-altering chemicals.
Illicit drug use is defined by anti-social behavior.

"7. I can "control" my alcohol/drug-use .... do I have a problem"?

Generally, the need to "control" intake of mood-altering chemicals, is the result of some experiences, where we were "out of control".
Social drinkers are never compelled to ask these types of questions.

8. What is chemical dependency?

Chemical Dependency is a progressive and pervasive disease that is often fatal, if untreated, and characterized by progressive patterns of de-compensation, as well as a tendency to relapse, very similar to diabetes. These diseases respond well, through treatment.
