After Failed ‘Rapid Detox’ For Opiate Addiction;...
Caller: Mother for her 21 year old son
Problem: Started with oxycontin addiction and now heroin addiction
Seeking: Long term rehab program; holistic rehab treatment center
Reason(s): They live in California but flew her son to Florida to do a rapid detox she saw on TV. This turned out to be a nightmare as he became very sick; and they did not tell her that it is normal to put him on stimulants as part of his post detox therapy. Now he’s addicted to adderall and also still craves and relapsed on oxy, and heroin, when he can’t get the pills. She is very upset about the misleading information out there. After extensive research She has come to the conclusion that he must go to a holistic rehab (biophysical rehab program was mostly what she read about). She likes the idea of using no drugs and no drug replacement therapy to help her son. She also feels that long term rehab treatment is really the only way to ensure he gets lasting results and knows if he gets a combination of biophysical drug rehab with long term rehab therapy he’ll have a very strong chance at beating his 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.
