Article: Proof From Above- NICD Director 

Adderall is an amphetamine, or more commonly referred to as a stimulant. It comes in pill form and is sometimes prescribed by doctors for medical problems, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Amphetamines can also be abusedó used in a way other than as prescribed (e.g., crushed and snorted) or used by someone without a prescription.

Methylphenidate, known as Concerta or Ritalin, is another medication prescribed for people with ADHD. Using Adderall, as well as the other medications mentioned have shown, in numerous research studies and testing, its effectiveness when used as prescribed for ADHD cases. Unfortunately, when it is abused; however, methylphenidate can lead to many of the same problems, including exacerbation of other addictive behaviors (i.e. alcoholism, crack use, etc.), that are typically seen with other stimulants such as Ice, Crystal, Meth., Ecstacy to name a few.

There appears to be an epidemic abuse of Adderall with students, particularly those in college. For more information on stimulants click on the link to "Drug Pictures" and 
"Signs and Symptoms of Use" below.

Choosing a Treatment Center

By Mitchell E. Wallick, Ph.D, CAP, CMHC, ICADC, FABFCE, Executive Director CARE Inc., http://www.careflorida.com/ Mitchw@careflorida.com , NICD Board Member

For more information on Dr. Wallick see the NICD Board

  You are sick and tired of being sick and tired! Perhaps your family or the court has decided that you need treatment. Regardless of your decision, choosing the right treatment center is probably one of the most important decisions you are ever going to make. 

            So now you are on the internet. You have done a search and literally hundreds of treatment centers have popped up. Amazing, each and every one of them purports to be the very best program for you. Everybody has a great web site. How do you know what program is really right for you?

            The first step is facing reality. Treatment can be very expensive. One of the things we have to face in recovery is accepting the fact that we sometimes have to make choices based on the resources that are available to us. Sad, but true, you are going to have to eliminate those programs you cannot afford.

            Check your resources: Insurance is always a good beginning. Do you have any? What portion of your treatment will they cover? What specific programs will they cover? (If your policy is an HMO save yourself time and effort and call them first.) If you donít have insurance, and/or donít like what they have to offer you can always take the next step. Remember also that just because your policy covers treatment, it does not necessarily mean that they will approve treatment once you arrive. Always ask the treatment center to guarantee in writing your maximum out of pocket expenses. (Be sure to ask about hidden costs. Are MD visits, medications, field trips, medications etc. extra?) Many programs offer discounted or scholarship rates to those that pay for themselves. Donít be embarrassed to ask. Finally, how much of a commitment must I make? If the program is not for me how much, if any, of my tuition will be refunded?

                       Next step is to decide what you can afford for treatment. Remember depending on your situation your other expenses may be continuing while you are in treatment. Once you have determined what you can afford to pay for treatment, you can eliminate all those wonderful places that you may not be able to afford.

                       Equally important is deciding what it is that you are looking for in a treatment facility. Remember this is a not a vacation, so make your decisions based on the quality of care, not on your ability to Para-sail or play golf. Here are some important things to look for:

                       What is the size of the program? Some people like small intimate programs. Others prefer large name brand centers. The choice is really yours.

 I have found over the years that most people do much better at places where they will receive lots of individual attention. Smaller programs generally do this. Good questions to ask are:

What is the size of the group?

What is the client to counselor ratio?

What is the staff to client ratio?

How many groups will I have a week?

How many individual sessions will I have a week?

            Another issue is the quality of the program. Who is the staff? What are their credentials? Are they certified, licensed etc. How often will I see these people? Who runs the groups? (Some programs have great consulting staff, but unfortunately the patientís spend their entire time in group with mental health technicians whose only qualification is a two or less years of personal sobriety.) If you feel you have a dual diagnosis, ask about a psychiatrist, mental health counselors or clinical social workers. Is the program properly licensed? How long has the program been in operation? Can I come and look at the program before I make a commitment? (Even if you canít, ask anyway, because that is a good way to find out if what is being told to you is true, or if the program is hiding something.)

            What about accommodations? Ask about the facilityís physical plant.  How many people will be in my room? How many people will share a bathroom? What amenities are in the apartment? (Cable TV, Washer Dryer etc.)

            How is the program supervised? What staff is available if I have a problem in the middle of the night?

What about food? How is it prepared? Will I be able to select my own menu, or must I eat what I am served.

           If I require detoxification, how will that work? Is it done at the facility or somewhere else? How much will that cost? (Detoxification is generally a separate cost)

           Ask about any special needs you may have? Dual diagnosis, Court Involvement and help, nutrition, personal needs such as physical assistance. Check on phone policies, internet etc. Many programs for therapeutic reasons limit access to the outside world. You must ask yourself if you can live with this.

           Finally make sure to ask about program philosophy and goals. Everybody will tell you about sobriety, but how are they going to get you there? Are they confrontive? Are they non- confrontive? Do they use cognitive therapy? Do they have specialists using other modalities that might be helpful to you?

 

Donít worry about taking the time of the programís representative. That is their job. If they seem rushed and/or high pressure that will tell you about their motivation and how you will probably be treated once you arrive. Also ask yourself what kind of questions they are asking you? Are they looking to make sure you are appropriate, or are they just trying to fill a bed in their program whether it will work for you or not? The answers to these questions, combined with your feeling about the program, after you have talked to someone on the phone, will help you determine the program(s) that will meet your needs.

 

           Once you have decided on a program, immediately make arrangements for your admission. The sooner you enter treatment the less time you will have to spend worrying about it. Also, the less time your problem will have to get you into more serious trouble. Once you decide, donít wait, just do it!

           At the time of admission reconfirm your costs. Make sure you understand fully what your financial obligation is going to be.  Ask what you should and should not bring along. If you are taking medications, it is always a good idea to bring them with you. Even if the program you are going to provides you with medication, you can always make arrangements for them to hold what you are taking, just in case you leave suddenly or they donít happen to have what you need in their pharmacy.

            Prior to leaving let your family and everyone else that might be contacting you know where you will be and how long you might be out of touch. Appoint one member of your family whom you trust to be the spokesperson to contact the program if you want the family to know how you are doing.

            Get directions! If you are arriving by public transportation, make sure you have made arrangements to get from the bus stop, airport etc. to the program. Most programs will be happy to pick you up. Be certain that you know the procedure.

            Make up your mind to accept and cooperate with your counselors and program directions. Put on a good attitudeÖand the only thing left is to begin your new quality sober life. 

 

Good luck!
