Problem: Pain pill addiction; heroin addiction; maybe more
Seeking: Non 12 step drug rehabs; something that is non-disease based
Reason(s): He has had trouble in the past and the court ordered him to do lots of AA and NA type meetings. He feels that they just sit around and talk about the past and stir up feelings of wanting to get high. He said dealers are outside waiting for him just for this reason. The family doctor told her about non 12 step rehab centers that exist and have success rates that are 5-7X greater than traditional rehab because they do NOT use 12 steps in treatment. No group therapy, no telling him that he’s sick or diseased and they work to build him back up to point where he can accept responsibility for decisions he made to use drugs in order to solve life problems. She feels that a non 12 step rehab process will fit him perfectly and give him his life back.

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.
