Seeking: Long term drug rehab / non 12 step drug rehab if possible
Reason(s): They live in MA and the only rehab programs in NE are those that are usually short term and also disease model/12 step. He has done nearly half dozen drug rehabs in the last 6 years and nothing works. They want to put him back on drugs like suboxone and methadone (neither worked / just made him worse). Her son is willing to get help but is becoming hopeless. The mother realizes that sending him somewhere away from friends and drug contacts is key, but that also long term drug rehab is his last chance. She read that some non 12 step drug rehab centers exist and have 70-80% success rates when using non 12 step treatment therapies. She loves the fact that this drug program will not push further on him that he has a disease that is incurable and that they will not put him on more drugs.

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.
