    After 5 Months In Faith Based Rehab Father Seeks Long Term Non-Faith Based Rehab Option For Son

    Caller: Father for 23 year old son

    Problem: Opiate addiction; pot and just admitted new cocaine addiction

    Seeking: Non faith based drug rehab; non 12 step drug rehab treatment

    Reason(s): Father said that he felt like he was kicked in the stomach when his son admitted he just got out of treatment and now started using cocaine in addition to what he was doing before. He admitted that faith based program was almost totally bible study and no real rehab. His son wants treatment and wants to get his life back but will not go back. He said the non-faith based rehab treatment was the only way he’d go to rehab again. The father researched and discovered that non 12 step drug rehabs are non-faith based rehab programs as they do not use 12 step or Higher Power teachings. He believes the non 12 step rehabs are more scientific in addressing underlying issues and hopes to find rehab in TX or CA, if possible.

    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.
