Mother Calling About Teenage Daughter With Crack...
Caller: 36-year-old mother for teenage daughter
Problem: Crack cocaine addiction
Seeking: Biophysical Detox as part of an inpatient program
Reason(s): Mother is calling on behalf of her daughter who has previously gotten out of an abusive relationship with a drug user. Mother got worried after her daughter disappeared for an entire night without informing her parents that she was leaving. After discussing the occurrence, the daughter refused to discuss it and seemed reluctant to talk about it. After a few more days (mother refused to go into specifics here), the fact that the daughter has a problem with crack cocaine is revealed to both guardians. While the mother is understanding and wants to try the best for her daughter, the step-dad does not believe that it is worth investing either time or money and said, “she made a choice for herself, she needs to deal with it.” After talking to the daughter several more times alone, daughter admitted to the mother that she knows that she has a problem with crack cocaine and wants to do something about it. The problematic factor is that the daughter has no idea how to stop using because as she said “it is all I ever seem to think about.” After doing research online, the mother wants to know about the viability of biophysical detoxification in order to curb the initial cravings. Because of the young age of her daughter and the fact that she got out of an abusive relationship, she wants to know more about inpatient treatment in order to get her out of the circle of drug users amongst her friends.

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.
