    Brother Is Concerned About His Sister’s Bath Salt Abuse

    Caller: 19-year old man calling on behalf of his younger sister

    Problem: Bath salts

    Seeking: Rehab treatment options for bath salts, possible interventionist

    Reason(s): The brother is concerned that his little sister is having issues with ‘bath salts.’ He said, “I was finding these little baggies all over her room, they were hidden away, but not thrown away in the garbage. All of these baggies had the same thing on them, despite the fact that they all had different names, it said ‘not for human consumption’.” he said that he realized what his sister had been doing. He started learning more about bath salts and realized that these substances can be extremely dangerous and addictive. He said, “The more you read about this stuff, the more it feels like I should be doing something to make sure that she realizes that she is making a horrible decision with her life. I realize that there is nothing I can do right now that would make her change her mind, but I can at least offer her reasons why she should not be using. I also wonder if she knows why she is using. Is she using heavily because she is unhappy? Is she using because she feels she has to do it, to fit in? I really do wonder about that.” The brother wants to find out more information about the drug, about potential rehab options, and about intervention options before he ever tells his parents about his sisters’ situation.

    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.
