I only ask this here because it's the only B.C. based forum I go on…
My bro is having a few problems with alcohol and drugs. The situation is pretty serious apperantly. I've been getting quite a few e-mails from my sister-in-law and other family members as of lately and we want to get him in a rehab program.
Problem is that every rehabilitation program out there is based on a 12-step, religious program (or requires you to aknowledge a "higher power"). He is not, or does not want to be, religious. Sure they say that these programs aren't based on religion, however in the two programs he has tried it seems they get you comfortable and then start pounding christian based religious shit at you.
It's wierd…He's a HIGHLY educated professional that does very well for himself (and always has)….strongest person I know….His heart stopped twice after a head on collision and had to have his face peeled off and reconstructed….they say the only reason his neck did not completly break in the accident is because "he didn't have one" (at the time he was bodybuilding and was 235-240lbs and 5'9")….yet he can't get a handle on this….
Anyway…if anybody knows of a program within B.C. that is not based on a 12 step program please throw me a line. His doctor and his councellor both say they know of none…I have yet to find one.
