30-Year-Old Woman, Unemployed, Using Meth Daily Seeking...
Caller: Female best friend of 30-year-old woman
Problem: Daily meth use and destructive personal behavior
Seeking: Non-AA style treatment in Kansas our surrounding area
Reason(s): 30-year-old female has been addicted to methamphetamines for at least two years. In the past six months, methamphetamine use has gone from occasional to daily use. Her friend stated that in the past year, the 30-year-old female has held over eight different jobs and has been unable to maintain a regular work schedule because of her drug abuse. This means that she is subsequently released from those jobs for one reason or another. Her friend deems the current sexual behavior of the 30-year-old female as “a death wish.” Friend stated that she believes it is a miracle that the female does not have hepatitis, has become pregnant, or infected with AIDS / HIV as a direct result of her behavior. The 30-year-old female has tried staying clean before and has lasted upwards of a week or two (this is before the daily use started) but ultimately ends up relapsing because of the “unrelenting urge for methamphetamine.” Friend states that 30-year-old female is deeply depressed and ashamed of her actions when she is sober and friend assumes this is one of the reasons the 30-year-old female turned towards daily use in the first place. There is no immediate family that can provide emotional, physical or financial support. That said, the preference would be for a non-traditional rehab center in Kansas or surrounding area due to a circle of friends in the state that is not involved in drug use.

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.
