    While Husband Works On Railroads, Wife Smokes $200k In Crack Over 3 Years

    Caller: 40 year old woman

    Problem: Crack addiction

    Seeking: Long term rehab; non 12 step rehab program

    Reason(s): Her husband is gone quite a bit and does not manage their finances. He was about to retire but realized that something was wrong and she admitted that she had spent their savings. He loves her and wants her to beat this so they did a lot of research and found that traditional 12 step rehab has less than 10% success rate with crack addiction. He found out that non 12 step drug rehabs have on average 70% success rates (some higher) with crack addiction. They also discovered that long term rehab is important; 28 day rehabs are too short but 90 days or better will be important. They plan to borrow money from family to do this and wants to find a non 12 step rehab center in Florida or a list of non 12 step rehabs in California (they have family there).

    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.
