    Woman Concerned About Her Friend’s Addiction To Adderall

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

    Problem: Adderall addiction

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab

    Reason(s): According to the woman, her friend is someone she knew before she took Adderall, because the woman suggests that her old friend passed away the second she began her journey towards Adderall abuse. She said, “I remember the way that she used to be when we would hang out together, she was fun – she was funny – she would do cool things with me, but nowadays she just has a single focus, her schoolwork is in the toilet, she might get expelled, and I really do not feel like I want to hang out with her anymore.” According to the woman, one of the reasons that their social gatherings became to lessen was because the friend had to spend most of her money on Adderall bought from others. She also said that her friend’s religious parents found out that she had an issue with drug addiction, but they sent her to a 12-step treatment instead. She felt that the indoctrination did not have any basis in medical science, something evident by the fact that her friend still struggles with her addiction to Adderall. She said, “Honestly, I do not know if she is going to accept my help, I do not know if she even wants my help, but the truth is that I think that I need to get her some help pronto, because I do not know how long she is just going to abuse a single drug. I fear that this might spill into something else entirely.”

    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.
