    Meth Addict Resorting To Urine To Get High

    Caller: Sister for 45 year old brother

    Problem: Addicted to meth and homeless

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehabs / biophysical drug rehab

    Reason(s): Brother has been on the streets in MO for some time and just admitted to a family member that he goes to truck stops to find bottles of urine that truckers throw out of their trucks, and drinks them as this allows him to get meth without having to pay for it (because of drug residue in the urine). The family could not believe this and finally are all coming together to do whatever is needed to get him the right help to save his life and get him off the streets. They have doctors in the family who explained that the disease-based 12 step rehab model is a low success rate treatment method. And how biophysical rehab programs get all the meth residue out of the body tissues so that he can feel normal afterwards. Also how the biophysical treatment programs are non 12 step in nature which provides more one on one counseling and no group therapy to provide the emotional help he is going to need to successfully resolve his meth addiction.

    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.
