Problem: Buying methadone (40 mgs) off the street; also oxycontin and roxy
Seeking: Wants non 12 step drug rehabs only; feels NA or 12 step is not helping her
Reason(s): She was in an auto accident 2 years ago and found a way to buy meds off the street through school connections once the doctors cut her off. Her husband is unaware of her addiction but she is about to confront him and wants a good rehab to go to after this discussion. She feels non 12 step rehab programs provide the highest success rates as they will not enforce upon her the idea that she is victim or diseased or powerless to cure this addiction. She knows others who have done non 12 step rehab treatment for opiates and are very successful without relapse. She is seeking rehab in Tennessee if possible as she has family there who can visit. She knows that non 12 step rehabs are often long term drug rehab programs and is prepared for this.

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.
