Child Protective Services Removes Kids From Mother...
Caller: Sister for 33 year old woman
Problem: Adderall addiction; meth addiction
Seeking: Long term rehab treatment / non 12 step rehab options
Reason(s): This woman was diagnosed with adult onset ADD/ADHD 10 years ago and was put on ritalin, adderall and others. Finally when those drugs did not produce the ‘high’ they did at first, the woman started using meth off the street. Her family realizes now that the diagnoses was incorrect and either way the medications were nearly identical to meth she uses now. She is a mother of 2 young girls and CPS has taken them away from her and requires long term drug rehab to get them back. The family studied options and believes non 12 step drug rehab treatment will give her the best chance at beating this, as it will not tell her she is incurable and has a lifelong disease, etc. but will instead work with her to find and handle the issues that opened the door to this addiction.

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.
