    Woman Seeks Help For Adderall-Addicted Friend

    Caller: 35-year old woman calling on behalf of new friend

    Problem: Adderall addiction

    Seeking: Adderall treatment options

    Reason(s): A mom wants to know what, if anything at all, she is able to do to help a woman that she recently met in a ‘Mommy and Me’ class. She said that the woman that she befriended is clearly struggling with an Adderall addiction. She states, “I remember the first time that she brought it up too – as though it was something I was foolish for not using yet. She would always be upbeat and full of energy, when I asked her why that was, she revealed that Adderall played an important role in her life.” She said that the woman receives the Adderall from other friends who have children that are diagnosed with ADD. She also said that she wants to be able to offer advice, especially after the recent discussion with the woman that she sometimes feels as though she might not be in control of the substance anymore. The mom admits, “I really do not know her all that well, our kids have had playdates before, but if you have someone who admits something rather serious, I think that it would behoove you to try and help them right? Only a heartless person would just do nothing to 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.
