Caller: Husband for himself and his wife (both 42 years old)
Problem: Pain pill addiction now heroin addiction
Seeking: Non 12 step drug rehab / long term rehab treatment
Reason(s): He was just arrested for possession and was scared of doing detox in jail. His father agreed to get him out on bond on the condition that he and his wife would go to treatment. He agreed, and now wants to really do this for himself not just for legal reasons. His father showed him information as to why his past 28 day 12 step rehabs have failed and why doing long term rehab and something that is more non 12 step rehab treatment – will give him a shot at very high success rates. He had the realization that non 12 step rehabs are better due to the fact that they do not tell him he has a disease and wants that for himself and his wife.

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.
