Reason(s): Her teenage daughter is smoking weed daily. No matter what the mother does, she continues to defy her and find ways to continue to use. She is only fifteen years old and already addicted to smoking marijuana; her mother is dreadfully concerned as to what else her daughter has been doing or what this could turn into or how it will affect her future if not fully solved now. She wants to take her daughter to a drug rehabilitation program, but she does not know which the best one is. After doing some research, and consulting with her family physician, she has decided that an outpatient treatment program would not guarantee the best result, as they have some of the lowest success rates; and she is quite satisfied with taking her out of school for treatment and later get a tutor. The mother was advised to look for a rehabilitation center that will provide not just a detoxification process, but also counseling and social education. The daughter is agreeable to go to rehab as she wants to stop smoking pot and get her life back on track. They are both very optimistic and have high hopes that this will help her quit smoking weed, and lead a better healthier 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.
