    Man Worried That Friend’s Life Is Based Around The Use Of Crystal Meth

    Caller: 33-year-old man calling about 29-year-old friend

    Problem: Addiction to crystal meth

    Seeking: Holistic treatment in an inpatient facility

    Reason(s): The caller is seeking treatment for a friend who is addicted to crystal meth. He stated that his friend has made it obvious that he wants to seek treatment, but is unsure where to start. According to the caller, the person with a crystal meth addiction wants to stop using but needs to learn “how to live normal again.” According to the caller, the drug has become his friend’s way to escape boredom, discomfort and provides a constant escape. “He smokes crystal meth all the time, when he needs to be alert, when he is tired, when he is sad, when he is happy, when he is in a good mood, when he is upset, I doubt he would even know how to pass the time if he stopped using right now.” He wants his friend to seek rehab that would only use holistic treatments (caller said it makes no sense to ‘drug him up’ further). He also wants the type of treatment that has him staying in the facility around-the-clock to minimize the chances of relapse. The caller was provided with a phone number to a biophysical drug treatment facility, which offers long-term, inpatient treatment. Caller will call back within the next three days for more information.

    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.
