Problem: Heroin addiction; opiate addiction of many types
Seeking: Biophysical drug rehab treatment; something with non 12 step emotional therapy
Reason(s): They live in CA and he lives in IL. They finally connected with him a year ago and found out he’s been a heroin addict for many years and is the reason why he left the family. They want to help him and know he’s failed 12 step rehabs in the past. They read about biophysical drug rehabs and how they work to get the heroin residue out of the fatty tissue and liver so that he can become free of the cravings and urges to use again. They also know that some of them have non 12 step rehab counseling and they agree this will make him responsible and ethical and able to face life again whereas they feel more AA/NA type treatment will only hurt him. He’s willing to travel but rehab in TN would be good as family are there to visit during his treatment.

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.
