Reason(s): Friends of hers told her adderall would be a great way to lose weight and have more energy to get things done and take care of the kids/house, etc. 9 months later she finds she can’t function anymore if she is without it and she is using up her script in half the time. She is forced to buy it off the street and never had problems with drugs in the past. She read on the internet and other sources that only one type of rehab specializes in adderall addiction and that is biophysical rehab and how they work to get all the meth type residue out of her fatty tissue so that she can physically get back to normal. She fears without this treatment she will continue to have to use and stay on it to function and knows it will eventually kill her.

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.

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.
