    Mother Seeking Treatment Outside Of Her Insurance After Son Repeatedly Relapses On Heroin

    Caller: Mother for 22 year old son

    Problem: Heroin

    Seeking: Wants long term rehab; non 12 step treatment

    Reason(s): They live in Michigan and the only treatment she can get from her insurance being a nurse, is short term rehab at a hospital. They simply detox him for a few days along with short group sessions. He then gets released and relapses right after release. He’s now apathetic about getting help and is now suicidal.   She read that a non 12 step rehab model is a long term treatment program and very effective at preventing relapse but realizes that they are not covered by her insurance. She hopes to find one that is within driving distance and said she is now willing to get family to help her financially in order to save his life.

    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.
