    Father, 55 Never Been To Treatment; Family Convinces Him To Leave For Long Term Rehab

    Caller: Wife for 55 year old husband

    Problem: Alcohol addiction / pain pill addiction

    Seeking: Long term drug rehab

    Reason(s): His family has watched him nearly drink himself to death for 20 years. In the last 2 years he has gotten much worse with an opiate addiction that began after a back injury which no longer requires the pain pills but he takes them in excess anyway due to his dependency. A family intervention occurred and now he’s ready to do rehab. His family showed him how long term rehab treatment options provide success rates that are 5-7X’s greater than traditional 28 day rehabs. Also they are seeking a long term rehab program that includes biophysical drug rehab protocols so that he can get physically well while long term rehab therapy addresses the underlying emotional issues.

    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.
