Father Calling To Discuss Daughters Methamphetamine Addiction...
Caller: Father calling for his 27-year-old daughter
Problem: About to lose her kids because of methamphetamine addiction
Seeking: Inpatient rehab with holistic detox program
Reason(s): The father is calling on behalf of his daughter who is struggling with methamphetamine addiction. Both the father and his daughter are worried that the daughter’s husband is going to take the two children (aged 3 and 5) away if she does not make steps to living a sober life. The woman’s father is desperate for information because he has seen the transition of his daughter’s drug use – she started by snorting, transitioned to smoking, and is currently using methamphetamine intravenously. According to the father, at this point the husband and the wife have been living apart for several weeks. Both parties admit that the strain on their marriage is mostly because of the drug addiction. Financial problems have resulted because of the addiction to methamphetamine and the caller admits that he himself has caved in before and given some money due to his daughter breaking down before him. According to the husband, it has gotten to the point where she would pawn off some of their belongings to pay for more drugs. According to the caller, the husband has made it very clear that he is still considering filing for divorce but it appears that the threat of taking the children with him may have been what caused her to be open to rehab. Because of long-term use and the odds of relapse, a combination of inpatient rehabilitation and holistic detoxification is recommended.

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.
