    Man Is Concerned About Son’s Methamphetamine Addiction

    Caller: 64-year old man calling on behalf of his son

    Problem: Methamphetamine addiction

    Seeking: Long-term, biophysical detoxification program

    Reason(s): The dad is calling on behalf of his wife and himself in order to deal with the issues related to his son. According to the father, his son has struggled with a methamphetamine addiction for several years now but both parents keep helping him out whenever it appears that the situation becomes dire. The father said, “It has gotten to the point where I have experienced so much frustration and so much heartache that I really do not remember my own son anymore. The person that I see staring back sometimes does not resemble my son. But if I told my wife that, I think she would die from a broken heart. The facts are simple; we can’t keep helping him financially, especially with my upcoming retirement. We need to decide whether or not we can help him get straight or try to cut him out of our life.” He said that they have considered cutting their son out of their life, primarily because of the son’s erratic and sometimes abusive behavior while high on methamphetamine. The father made it clear that he wants to find a long-term, biophysical detoxification program that would be able to provide some long-term results.

    1. Admit it, you’ve been “enabling” your son, feeding his addiction for far too long. You’re a part of the problem, and now it’s gotten out of hand, you as a father and provider, finally put your foot down. It’s like many parents… In denial for a long time, thinking their kid would somehow grow up or grow out of the addiction. This is the same story we’d hear here and there, sadly. The best thing to do is get your son to rehab. But do you have the heart and mind for it? Are you sure you’re not thinking, well, can’t we just have medication or an easier way out? It’s common thinking. Because many parents DON’T UNDERSTAND addiction as a problem, as a disease or health issue. They think that when one in the family is doing drugs, it’s a shame. Or they think it’s just a phase. Well, most realize too late how wrong they are. All I can say to the dad – GET YOUR SON TO REHAB NOW! Or else your retirement, assets, comforts and whatever you have now will be gone. Remember that addiction doesn’t just eat up the addict, it slowly kills him/her, and when almost done, the addict is left very, very sick. Decide on rehab now! Surely you don’t want your retirement all gone!

    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.
