Co-Worker Calling For Non Disease Based Treatment...
Caller: Friend, works with 34 year old woman
Problem: Started as pain pill addiction; now heroin addiction
Seeking: Non 12 step drug rehab center that includes biophysical drug rehab treatment
Reason(s): Her son went to a program years ago that was a long term rehab and specialized in using nutritional supplements, exercise and sauna program to get all the drugs and opiates out of his body. He was only 24 but had failed 3X elsewhere and after this did great and never went back to drugs. She told her friend/co-worker about this and is eager to find something for her. She lives in NM and told her that there is nothing like it there but there are drug rehabs in TX or in CA both relatively close that can do this. She also specified that it had to be non 12 step rehab treatment as she has done AA and NA and hates both and will only go if it is a non 12 step rehab program.

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.
