    Mother Of Four Children Addicted To Percocet And Other Pain Killers

    Caller: Sister of 42 year old woman

    Problem: Valium, Oxycodone and Percocet addiction

    Seeking: A successful alternative to 12 step therapy

    Reason(s): She has three boys (ages 12, 10, and 6) and one daughter (age 15) and a husband of 19 years. She has been to the emergency for overdosing four times in a little over a year. Husband and sister are in fear that she will kill herself one day; and the husband is considering leaving with their children.

    She had a back injury at work four years ago, and was prescribed Percocet to cope with her back pain. Now she uses up to 30 Percocet’s, Oxycodone’s or any other powerful pain killers that she can get her hands on per day. Her husband and sister are seeking alternative to 12 step treatment because she has already completed a Narcotics Anonymous 12 step program and relapsed immediately afterwards. They have researched some non-traditional treatment centers that empower the patients instead of forcing them to accept that they are powerless against drugs and alcohol. She has expressed concern over returning to a facility that continuously uses 12 step methods or enforces religion. Therefore the husband is looking for a long-term inpatient non-traditional program that offers aftercare services if needed. We helped them locate a treatment facility in Florida that fits her specific needs and she has agreed to go with the support of her family.

    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.
