    17 Year Old Needing Rehab For Ecstasy, Benzos & Pot

    Caller: Father for 17 year old daughter

    Problem: Ecstasy, benzos and pot

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab specializing in adolescents

    Reason(s): Using since 15, sent daughter to 2 drug rehabs in the past and both told her she was diseased and prescribed medication. Neither have helped and she seems to be doing worse. He feels the only way to get her well is to send her to an inpatient center that will work with her on cognitive therapy basis. He does not believe in or want the 12 step treatment model for her anymore. Relatives and church members told him about non 12 step drug rehab programs. How this is where he can find the type of help he’s been seeking for her, and how some of them deliver a biophysical detox process that will remove the drug residue from within her body so that she can feel like she did prior to using drugs.

    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.
