    Mother Worried About Daughter’s Health Due To Her Addiction To Meth

    Caller: 50-year-old mother calling on behalf of 18-year-old daughter

    Problem: Meth addiction

    Seeking: Meth rehab treatment program, treatment options

    Reason(s): Caller is the mother of an 18-year-old girl that has developed an addiction to meth. Caller stated that she realized her daughter was becoming dangerously thin. She usually seemed to have an abundance of energy but did not use it to exercise which made the caller suspicious. At first caller said, she thought her daughter might be purging to remain thin, but found out that the problem was something very different. After sitting down to discuss the matter with her daughter, expecting to have a stern talk about body image and a possible eating disorder, caller states her daughter admitted she had been using meth regularly. During an emotional conversation, the caller says that her daughter broke down in tears and asked her mother to help her. The daughter said she used meth to lose weight, fit in with the popular crowd, and it gave her “energy for days.” Caller says she knows her daughter often snorts meth, and occasionally smokes it. For the time being her daughter is holding down a part-time job, playing varsity volleyball, and her grades are decent. Rather than letting the problem escalate to where she can no longer be in control, the caller says she wants her daughter to seek treatment while she is still willing to do so.

    1. This is a great time to help your daughter. Not many are willing to let their parents know and also ask for help, so taking the lead to find a good non step rehab is the best thing you could do. She will get well as long as it is her choice. She will have a great future ahead!

    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.
