    Man Seeks Alternative Rehab Option For Percocet Addiction

    Caller: Man seeks treatment for neighbor across the hall

    Problem: Percocet addiction

    Seeking: Non 12 step rehab for prescription drugs

    Reason(s): The man states that he has become close with his neighbor who lives across from him. Because they both moved into the apartment complex at or about the same time and did not know anyone else nearby, he said that both he and his neighbor would play videogames together or watch movies. However, the neighbor’s recent behavior over the last two months concerns him. He states that his neighbor has become lethargic, will not answer the door, and rarely leaves the house anymore. The man said, “After a while, I just decided to confront him. Not because he owes me an explanation about why he will not hang out with me, but because I was worried about him. Anyway, I asked him and sat on his couch a while and he finally told me that recreational use of Percocet of all things turned into what he called ‘a nightmare’. He said he is buying the stuff from people he knows because he does not have a prescription for it. Apparently he is losing money hand over fist.” He said that he believes the negative mindset that his neighbor is in, combined with the Percocet addiction is a dangerous combination. The man also promised his neighbor that he would look for help. He said that he does not know what type of insurance coverage his neighbor has, which means that he will need to look for something that would work with a payment plan.

    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.
