What is the best treatment program for a 49 yr. old female

What is the best treatment program for a 49 yr. old female who has been bulemic for 26 yrs and alcoholic for 20 yrs and been through several programs? Hope is withering.
<p>Hi,</p><p> </p><p>Thanks for usuing JustAnswer!</p><p> </p><p>There is still hope. A healthy and happy life is worth fighting for. It will be a hard fight but it can be done. I would suggest going through another program. Relapse is common and part of recovery. The important part ist at you pick yourself back up and start fighting again. There is no magical cure or pill that will make it all go away. It will take a lot of self exploration and dealing with hurst from the past and figuring out what is going on in the presant. Each time you complete a program you get a little more from it until the picture is whole and you get your "ah ha" moment. There are some longer treatment programs that would deal with the alochol such as teen challenge (not just for teens) and faith farms, etc. They are usually free to low cost but require a serious commitment. But with the bulemia as well I would really suggest a dual diagnosed setting where you could be monitored medically as well. I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist any more. </p>
