Reason(s): The eighth grade student has been repeatedly caught huffing inhalants like aerosols. His parents are extremely worried about his health, as they have seen many kids lose their lives by huffing aerosols. They know how easily available these items are to kids. The availability of aerosols make them seem less dangerous and benign, when in fact, these objects can be lethal. The child is very young and is unaware of the dangers he is putting his life into. Because of their personal beliefs as well as the information gathered after consulting with several well-known physicians in their area, the parents decided that they want to send their son to a non twelve step recovery program. They believe that since he is so young, this will be the best option for him to help get rid of this compulsion to get high. Non twelve step drug rehab programs are a great solution because of the practical applications taught to help individuals learn how to live without being under the influence of any substance, and take responsibility for their actions. The boy has agreed to go to a treatment program when school is out. The parents believe that this is the best option for their son, because they do not want him to miss school for an extended period of time. Now they are trying to get all the legwork done and everything lined up so their son can go right into a drug program as soon as school lets out.

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.

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.
