    Woman Is Worried About Her Sister’s MDMA Abuse

    Caller: 25-year old woman calling on behalf of her sister

    Problem: MDMA (Ecstasy) addiction

    Seeking: Rehab options for MDMA with possible interventionist

    Reason(s): The woman admits that both her and her sister would use MDMA (Ecstasy) when going out to parties on the weekend. She states that both her and her sister are very close and enjoyed having the energy to dance the night away. However, she is concerned that her sister may have reached a point where she is unable to have fun without XTC anymore. She said, “I have read online that XTC is not addictive, at least not physically anyway. So I guess you do not get the same withdrawal symptoms as you would with alcohol or heroin. However, it did say that it might be mentally addictive.” According to the woman, the exclusive use on the weekends is no more; she said that her sister would begin to use on a Thursday, than a Sunday, and now uses more often than that. She said that she feels hypocritical about talking to her sister about the drug use, but feels that she is not dependent where her sister clearly developed a habit and a tolerance. She is also concerned about the increased dosage that her sister takes every time she goes out in order to chase after the desired effects. The woman said, “She is using more and more each time. Not only am I worried she is going to be broke eventually, but it also makes me worried that eventually her body is just going to wear out.” The woman wants more information about how to approach the situation with her sister and would like to know what steps to take next.

    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.
