    Addiction To Ecstasy Threatening To Ruin Hopes And Dreams Of 22-Year-Old Man

    Caller: 25-year-old man calling on behalf of 22-year-old college roommate

    Problem: Some cocaine and marijuana, but mostly ecstasy

    Seeking: Looking for the best coarse of action for treatment

    Reason(s): Caller says that both he and his friend are from the same small rural town where everyone knew everyone else. After they both moved away from their hometown to a much larger city for college, they no longer faced the same social scrutiny that they had become accustomed to. Caller states, “I was exposed to a completely new way of life, new ideas, and new people. Whereas I found new people to hang out with, my friend found drugs.” Caller states that he believes that the friend struggling with addiction started doing drugs in order to become part of “their world.” Caller states that his friend tried a little bit of cocaine, some marijuana, but ecstasy made a negatively profound impact. According to the caller, his friend started using ecstasy more frequently and surrounded himself with people that also used it, even started looking down on people that did not use the drug. After being roommates for the first two years on campus, he believes it was his own unwillingness to use ecstasy that caused his roommate to move off campus and move in with others. Caller believes ecstasy has robbed his friend of the ability to be in touch with reality and wonders what the best course of action would be for his friend if he could make it clear to him that he has a problem with ecstasy abuse.

    Most Insurance Accepted

    The traditional 12 step approach looks at drug and alcohol addiction as an incurable disease. This disheartens many and makes people feel as though they are at a constant disadvantage when battling addiction. Non-traditional programs treat drug and alcohol addiction as a serious problem that can be fully addressed and resolved through treatment that is based on science and empirical evidence.
    The issue with 12 step programs is that they were the first real drug and alcohol addiction treatment offered to the public. Because many realize that addiction is something that they cannot overcome by themselves, popularity boomed quickly. While the research now shows 12 step programs are almost as effective as doing nothing at all, they are still the first name associated with drug addiction by virtue of "being first."
    Not all non 12 step programs are the same, which makes it important to find the right program for you or your loved one. It is important to find a long-term, holistic treatment option that treats each patient as an individual.
    It is impossible to determine exactly how much non 12 step treatment costs without knowing more specifics about the prospective patient. Some programs charge more than others do. This again highlights the importance of finding a program that not only meets your needs, but is also affordable. Fortunately, many programs work with a sliding pay scale or allow you to pay for treatment in installments.
    This depends on the programs and on your insurance. More and more insurance companies are realizing the need for proper alternative drug treatment and extending coverage. This is due to the better results offered by a holistic approach and the financial benefits of most patients not relapsing.
