    Mother Feels Son’s Meth Addiction Is Due To Her Decision To Put Him On ADD/ADHD Meds

    Caller: Mother for 28 year old son

    Problem: Meth addiction (smoking it); was using Adderall and others for years prior to meth

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab; biophysical drug rehab

    Reason(s): Her son is now willing to get help. New doctors are saying that he was diagnosed ADD/ADHD incorrectly. He was put on meds in high school and continued using drugs like Adderall in college. After a while they stopped working due to tolerance and switched to meth so that he could use as much and as often as he liked. They both feel that the meth addiction is a result of being on psycho stimulants for so many years and now his body is unable to function without them. Their family doctor showed them that non 12 step drug rehab provides a type of treatment that have a much higher success due to one-on-one counseling and life skills courses. Also, some of these non 12 step rehab centers have biophysical drug rehab protocols that will address getting the meth and other stimulant residue out of the tissues of his body. The goal is that biophysical rehab treatments will eliminate the stored compounds enabling him to live a life free of stimulants.

    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.
