    Friend’s ‘Study Aid’ Has Turned Into A Full-Blown Cocaine Addiction

    Caller: 16-year old girl calling on behalf of her friend

    Problem: Cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Cocaine rehab treatment options

    Reason(s): The teen has known her friend for years and both attend a prestigious high school. The girl stated that while attending a prestigious high school opens the door for universities such as Yale, Columbia, and Harvard, it also places additional expectations on these students to perform. She said that this is when her friend turned to cocaine to get a mental edge. She said, “At first she actually did better in school, I am not sure who recommended it but it seems like a strange reason to start – but a valid one for her nonetheless.” The teen admits that the grades were impressive and that it provided her friend far more time for other electives, something that colleges look at. The caller said, “At first the cocaine made her really social too, made it easier for her to start up a conversation and talk to people, but it quickly began to isolate her from others. Even other students who actively used cocaine at our high school, did not use as much as she is using. This is the reason she started hiding her cocaine abuse from others.” According to the teen, her friend realizes that something needs to change, random nosebleeds in class, painful throat and sinuses, her friend was starting to realize that this extra energy comes at a price. The teen is going to join her friend in addressing the issue with the user’s parents, so wants drug rehab options to present to them.

    1. This is just strange. Where did a 16 yr old even get the coke? And understandably, one must know the “roads” to finding some. We’re not even talking about the costs yet! I really don’t think it’s all about trying to get “academic” edge over the peers; it’s just sheer show-off! Besides, I don’t think this teenager is really that intelligent. If she was, then coke wouldn’t be the first thing she’d go to. Instead she’d be found molding habits like drugs that would keep her alert. Cocaine just ain’t it. I think this story is just freckled with fantasy! Get real!!!

    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.
