    Impaired Nurse, Seeking Holistic / Non 12 Step Rehab Options For Opiate Addiction

    Caller: 37 year old woman

    Problem: Opiate addiction; using morphine / fentanyl / hydrocodone and others

    Seeking: Non disease rehab; non 12 step rehabs

    Reason(s): The woman has concern over the Higher Power issue in 12 step and also that they promote it being a disease. As a nurse she knows it is not a disease but a behavior that can and should be addressed and she spoke with doctors who said non 12 step rehab programs offer high success rates by factor of 5X. She feels that non 12 step drug rehab options will give her ability in a non-group setting (individual counseling) to really address underlying issues of why this drug use began. Rehab in UT or rehabs in OR are helpful but willing to travel to the best options.

    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.
