Seeking: Long term rehab / biophysical drug rehab treatment
Reason(s): He was first introduced to this stimulant when he was in college, friends passed it around campus and is also very easy to get these days. He had stopped for a while but in the last 3 years he has become a full time poker player and found that it gives him endless energy at the tables and acts like cocaine or meth but burns longer and cleaner. The problem now is that he cannot function without it and it’s changing his personality. He’s paranoid, personality changes, sees ‘men in the bushes outside’ and wants to stop but is simply unable to do so. He read that others have hit this problem and that biophysical rehabs in the US successfully apply special long term drug rehab programs designed to get the drug out of his body tissues so that he can recover and function again normally without it.

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.
