    Mother Seeks Help For Teen Daughter With Valium Addiction

    Caller: 42-year old mom calling on behalf of her teenage daughter

    Problem: Valium addiction

    Seeking: Rehab program with counseling that specializes in teen addiction

    Reason(s): The mother wants to know what the availability is for a long-term, inpatient rehabilitation center for someone struggling with a benzodiazepine addiction. The caller says that her daughter made the switch to valium after having jittery sensations on Xanax. The caller said that her daughter does struggle with anxiety, but its’ currently taking far more than the prescribed dosage in order to deal with the stress of being in high school. The mom said, “I know that she is taking it to deal with the reality of college coming soon, having to leave some friends behind, but both me and her dad did not know just how bad the problem was getting. She told me she has been buying medication from friends at school for months now.” She is worried that her daughter is not only gambling with her physical health, but is also spending a great deal of her savings on buying medication from others. She says, “I realize that it might seem harsh to put your daughter into a rehab program, but clearly there is something else going on here. Clearly she is struggling with some sort of image problem, acceptance, I do not know and I do not really know how to make her confide in me”. She wants to find programs that cater specifically to, or have at least worked with, teenagers that have substance abuse problems.

    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.
