    Man Wants Drug Intervention For Heroin Addict Brother

    Caller: 32-year old man calling on behalf of his brother

    Problem: Heroin addiction

    Seeking: Interventionist for heroin rehab treatment

    Reason(s): The man is concerned that his brother has spiraled out of control and has gone from being an occasional heroin user to someone who is not only a danger to himself, but people around him as well. He said, “We know that he has had issues with prescription pills before, we knew that and we always tried to get him to stop. But when you are talking about heroin man, that is something different entirely. I know that unless we do something drastic, the next chance that we get to meet up around him will be at his funeral.” He is both angry at the situation and upset with the fact that no one in the family did anything to help. He wants to make sure that his brother not only gets the help needed, but also gets the much-needed wakeup call to ensure that he enrolls into treatment. He believes that professional treatment is the only way that his brother is going to be able to get off drugs altogether. He also said, “I believe that an intervention is needed, but we need this done right. I fear that if we mess this up, and let emotions get involved, we might just see him leave altogether and if that happens, we may never see him again.”

    Most Insurance Accepted

    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.
