Seeking: Non 12 step rehab; holistic rehab treatment
Reason(s): His addiction started with oxycontin and when he could no longer afford it, went to heroin. He has been to two short term traditional rehab centers. They put him on methadone first which nearly killed him and now suboxone. He knows this is not working and like most others on the street, finds he can just stop suboxone to take heroin when he has the money to buy drugs, and go back to suboxone just to keep from getting sick when his drugs are used up. His father told him he would help him get into rehab if it was a non 12 step drug rehab center. He said this was because his father knows with non 12 step rehab, he’ll not be put on more drugs. That it is a holistic drug rehab treatment in nature. Both in the emotional side of things (he doesn’t want to be told he has a life long disease) and also no more suboxone, methadone, etc; his father is confident his son will be fully off drugs when he’s done with this type of program. Which he is ready to do right now.

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.
