    The Teen Is Concerned About Her Friend’s Adderall Addiction

    Caller: 18-year old girl calling on behalf of her friend

    Problem: Adderall addiction

    Seeking: Adderall addiction treatment information

    Reason(s): The teen suggests that she feels at least partly responsible for her friend’s struggle with Adderall, which is one of the reasons that she is actively making the phone call. She said, “I remember my friend was always complaining about feeling too tired to do her homework, how her little brothers would constantly be loud and distract her. So when I suggested that she get an Adderall from one of the kids at school, I did not really think about it to be honest.” According to the teen, her friend certainly took the recommendation to heart and has since begun using Adderall regularly. She said, “I am starting to feel as though this is borderline obsessive. She is unable to think or focus on anything else when we are sitting at recess. For example, she will be talking about what person she needs to talk to in order to get more Adderall rather than just sitting with us and enjoying the moment.” The teen wants to be able to gather as much information that she can, about Adderall addiction and Adderall recovery, before she confronts both her friend and her friend’s parents. She said, “I know that I did not actively put the Adderall in her hand, but I might as well have. Now I feel that it is at least partly my responsibility to help clean up this mess.”

    1. My son has been found with Adderrall in their school. It completely put the whole family in shock. Why would a talented, intelligent, friendly & full-of-potential student do drugs? Where did we go wrong to amount to his abuse?

      As it turned out, ALL his friends (ages 17 & 18) are doing it. They’re into sports, excel in academics & are fairly popular in school. No one would expect them to do drugs or anything bad, right?

      Well, we are so wrong about it… And surprise! surprise! so many schools in the district (Texarkana) have the same problems!!!

      My questions are:

      1) How to ensure these kids doing Adderall or any other prescription drugs or any drugs get the best help! God forbid, they’d go to college and get into worst cases!!!

      2) How to make law enforcement work well with the school districts. Specially because I have two girls, ages 14 and 12…

      Your ideas would be so welcome!

    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.
