Seeking: Information on a TN inpatient treatment center
Reason(s): Husband has been abusing crystal meth for seven years and the wife can no longer deal with it. He steals her money and jewelry as well as electronics in their home when he is unable to afford his addiction. He also steals from others’ homes and vehicles to support his drug needs. When high on crystal meth, he becomes violent and has been arrested twice for domestic abuse. The wife has been confronted by a drug dealer at their home who was searching for her husband because the guy claimed that her husband owed him money for drugs. She knows that the husband’s life is in jeopardy and he will not last another year at the current rate things are going. She has done some research and has found a long term treatment center in Tennessee that offers alternative rehabilitation. He has already completed a 12 step inpatient program and was released only after 30 days. Needless to say, he relapsed soon after his release and has not attempted sobriety since. The wife understands with crystal meth addiction it takes more than a year for the drug to be released from someone’s system. The husband has agreed to enter into a treatment facility again and the wife has agreed to relocate to Tennessee to be near him. She will also be attending couples meetings so they may repair their marriage once he is no longer using crystal meth.

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.
