Reason(s): A 50 year old female member of his Church just lost her husband a few months ago. She was a long time member of his congregation but no longer attends. Other members are joining the pastor, gathering to do an intervention to convince her to get help. She does not leave the house and is in a constant drug and alcohol stooper. At this rate, they are worried that she will not survive much longer. Some members of his Church convinced him that traditional rehab will not work because the programs are too short and do not eliminate the root cause and reasons for her addiction. They believe a non 12 step rehab program is the only way to help her. He also feels that the biophysical detox rehab will get these drugs out of her body so she can fully recover. The pastor is unsure how to find a non 12 step rehab facility that includes a biophysical detox program in Texas that does this type of treatment. He realizes that it will be something he has to pay for but needs guidance.

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.
