Problem: Previous oxycontin addiction; put on suboxone last 3 years
Seeking: Wants biophysical drug rehab that uses no drug replacement; seeks non 12 step therapy for underlying issues
Reason(s): Son was abusing oxy in college and until last week the family thought that suboxone was handling his problems. The school counselor told his family to go that route even though their son had been off the drug for a month but the counselor suggested he start replacement therapy. She found out the other day that their son is now shooting up suboxone and buying heroin. She has done extensive research on biophysical drug rehabs work to get all the opiate residue out of his body so that he can feel normal again and not crave it or need suboxone. She also wants non 12 step so that he’s not told he’s sick, diseased and unable to beat his addiction.

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.
