Husband Kicked Off Methadone Program; Wants Holistic...
Caller: Wife for 42 year old husband
Problem: Heroin to methadone and now cut off due to abuse
Seeking: Non 12 step rehab that uses biophysical drug rehab treatment
Reason(s): Her husband had numerous knee surgeries because of his work over the years. He first had an oxycontin addiction and then heroin addiction due to the cost of the pain pills. A Local rehab facility put him in a methadone program and eventually that did not work anymore. Her husband was just caught abusing the methadone and consequently kicked out of the program. He is having severe withdrawals and with both having completed research, found that the only real way to get better is to get off all the opiates. They believe that a non 12 step rehab program along with a biophysical drug rehab will get him off all the drugs and not to put him back into drug replacement therapy with new addictions to overcome. A long term, non 12 step drug rehab was also something his brother did because of pain pills years ago and said the non 12 step drug rehab treatment worked for him when all others failed.

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.
