Reason(s): He had knee surgeries 4 years ago and became addicted to pain pills which progressed to heroin. His family helped but he would leave his 12 step treatment and go right back to using. His mother is now divorced and partially blames him for creating upset within the family due to the financial strain for treatments and legal fees. He really wants to beat his addictions to pain medications and heroin, and feels this will be his last chance or he may end up in jail, overdose or just give up. He did extensive research on holistic non 12 step rehab treatments; their success rates being 5X’s higher and that they do not use more drugs like suboxone or methadone. He knows this is what he needs to help himself. Friends, who like himself, failed at 12 step drug rehab programs multiple times and have now completed non 12 step drug rehab treatments themselves and have beaten their addictions. He’s asking if one of our counselors could take the time to explain to his estranged mother how non 12 step drug rehab centers are different than what their insurance provides and why he feels this will give him a solution to once and for all cure his drug addiction.

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.
