Seeking: Wants a non faith based program/non 12 step facility
Reason(s): The 32-year-old husband is calling on behalf of his 24-year-old wife. Together they have a 2-year-old son. The husband is worried about his wife using methamphetamines and while he initially tried to dismiss the use, he has come to the realization that this is only going to be a growing problem in the future. Husband said a mutual friend introduced his wife to methamphetamines when she was complaining about feeling fatigued all the time in dealing with the son and household chores. The wife said she could do just about anything on meth; she ended up accomplishing everything she wanted to do that day and did not need any sleep. The husband became worried when he noticed his wife was not only using more methamphetamines, but was also staying up entire nights only to “crash” and sleep for a day. The husband is both scared for his wife and is worried that if friends and family find out about the use, they may report the couple to CPS. The husband is worried about the health of his wife and believes that eventually the increase in use could lead to his wife injecting meth to get an even faster rush. Husband is very clear that he does not want a 12-step program because of the religious undertones and because he is worried what the community may think.

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.
