    Mother Seeking Treatment For Daughter’s Addiction To Xanax

    Caller: 48-year old mother

    Problem: Xanax abuse

    Seeking: Treatment options for prescription drug abuse

    Reason(s): The caller is worried about her daughter’s addiction to Xanax. She described it like this, “When you are a mother and you hear all those horror stories, and you have your first child, you worry about them getting on dope, or drinking too much. But I never once thought that she would get in trouble with prescription drugs.” According to the mom, the problems have been developing for some time but she finally realizes what the problem is. According to the mom, her daughter is finding ways to get the Xanax from ‘friends’ at school, meaning that the mother has to choose between sending her child somewhere where she might be tempted to use, or keep her at home and then she suffers academically. She said “However, at this point I am not so sure that keeping her home would wreck her grades any further, she has been doing poorly in school and it is almost like I am dealing with an entirely different person. Because the school has a zero-tolerance policy, I am afraid to ask the school for help because I fear she might be suspended.” The mother would prefer an initial counseling conversation to take place as early as possible with treatment preferably happening around vacation periods. However, after speaking to the mother at length, she is willing to write off the semester if it means getting her daughter the right help.

    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.
