    After Failing Three 12 Step Programs In 10 Years; Woman Discovers Non 12 Rehab Option

    Caller: 53 year old Woman

    Problem: Opiate addiction / benzodiazepine addiction

    Seeking: Long term non 12 step rehab program

    Reason(s): Very educated and has been to 3 rehabs in past 10 years, all are 12 step based. Felt worse after each one because they told her she was incurable and had a disease. She was made to feel badly when she’d challenge that she felt it was not a disease and that it was a behavior that could be changed. She has since studied that non 12 step drug rehabs do not believe in teaching her she has an illness and instead will help her restore her power of choice and decision making abilities to overcome her addiction. She wants a non 12 step rehab program specializing in oxycontin addiction and xanax addiction 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.
