Problem: Started as pain pill addiction; now heroin addiction
Seeking: Non12 step drug rehab program
Reason(s): The mom said money is not an issue. She can send her daughter anywhere including Europe for treatment if that was the best solution. But she has been talking with experts and finding that most rehabs believe heroin addiction cannot be overcome and that she has to do drug replacement therapy but she is fully against this. Instead, she wants to go a holistic drug rehab route and has found that non 12 step rehabs in the US offer the most intense programs addressing two key components. They handle both underlying emotional issues (will not do group therapy or AA based treatment) and some also offer in-depth physical care to eliminate the heroin from her body’s cells and tissues to stop the cravings and urges (biophysical rehab component). She is hoping that she can find a non twelve step drug rehab in California for this but if not, will travel.

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.
