    Friend Struggling With Addiction To MDMA

    Caller: 22-year-old man for his friend

    Problem: Addiction to MDMA (Ecstasy)

    Seeking: Rehab options for ecstasy

    Reason(s): The caller is worried about his friend’s potential long-term health problems because of the use of ecstasy. He stated that both he and his friend had used ecstasy before to go out on the weekend, but a recent experience that his friend had changed his mind on the illicit substance. Caller said, “We were getting ready to go out, it was a Friday night, but instead of dropping, once he got to the club, he actually did it at home, a couple of hours before we left. I have seen him on ecstasy before but it was almost as if he was not in control of himself at all. His heart was pounding so loud I thought it was going to jump out of his chest and his temperature was through the roof. I mean I could have cooked an egg on his forehead. It took him until the next morning before his heart rate and temperature got down to normal again.” According to the caller, this was the eye opener that he needed, to stop using the illicit substance. However, the caller is worried about his roommate, especially considering that after talking to his him, it doesn’t appear to have changed his mind on the potential use of MDMA in the future. He wants suggestions on how to properly address rehab options for his addiction, with his friend.

    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.
