    Finding The Right Long Term Rehab In Lieu Of Jail Time

    Caller: Mother for 40 year old son

    Problem: Alcohol, xanax & pain pills

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab center / holistic drug rehab treatment

    Reason(s): The son broke into parents’ house to steal some money and his mother wanted him arrested for minor theft so that the judge would order him to drug rehab. Unfortunately this is not going as planned as the DA is pressing more charges and the only way out is long-term drug rehab or jail time. The family lives in Long Island NY and there are no good long term rehab programs in the area. Heard about great drug treatment centers in CA that are long term; holistic rehab facilities (non 12 step rehab model) in CA and feels she can get the courts to allow him to travel for this. Hoping to find non 12 step drug treatment in this type of rehab because he’s done 12 step programs in the past and he and the rest of the family feel they do not work. Knows it’s because of the idea they promote that he is a victim and said they all do not agree with that philosophy.

    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.
