Seeking: Outpatient care but open to alternative drug rehab
Reason(s): Father calling on behalf of his 29-year-old daughter who is “too embarrassed to make the call herself.” The caller states that his daughter gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy and her second husband claimed that using a little bit of cocaine would help her lose the weight faster. The caller states that the daughter and her husband used cocaine and she quickly lost the weight that she gained during pregnancy. However, after losing the weight, she could not simply stop using the drug and feels depressed after not using for a while but feels better almost instantaneously after using cocaine. The husband is now complaining about the cost of cocaine, which has led to them constantly arguing about bills. The husband has gotten increasingly abusive, verbally and the daughter is afraid that it might soon turn physical as well. Though she is currently filing for divorce, she is scared it may result in a bitter custody dispute that may result in the judge ruling that Child Protective Services may become involved. Though she understands that it will be a difficult challenge, she realizes that she is going to need help when it comes to withdrawing from cocaine use. Because there is a child involved, the daughter would prefer an outpatient treatment program. However, the caller stated that she understands that cocaine use may require more attention. The caller states that he would be willing to take in her child for a while if she seeks treatment.

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.
