    Doctor Addicted To Opiates

    Caller: 51 year old doctor

    Problem: Addiction to pain killers, oxycontin & Percocet

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab center with biophysical drug rehab component

    Reason(s): Family, friends and church did an intervention and got him to see that he lost control of his life as well as his practice is at risk due to becoming addicted to opiates. Recent had a DUI which the hearing is coming up. Wants to turn over practice to another doctor for as long as is needed to get the undistracted help that he requires. Did extensive research and feels a non 12 step drug rehab center with inclusion of a biophysical rehab program will help him recover fully without relapsing. Said clients of his go through traditional 12 step rehab / 28 day treatment and revert back to drugs very quickly. Now that he’s finally ready to get help he wants to handle his opiate abuse fully without the fear of relapsing. Knows that the biophysical drug rehab treatment will allow him to get the stored opiates residue out of his body that chains him to the addiction physically and was told by other doctors that this is best way to completely overcome the 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.
