Seeking: Long term drug rehabs; non 12 step drug rehab methods
Reason(s): Son has been behind bars much of the last 12 years during his addiction for dirty urinalysis and when he comes out he tests dirty again and goes right back in. This most recent event concerns her as he may have to now do long term prison sentence and begging judge for last shot at long term rehab in lieu of jail time. She already knows traditional 12 step programs do not work for him. He feels they just make him want to use more. Instead she has studied much about non 12 step rehabs and how they are long term (mostly) and how they do not use group sessions / tell him that he is incurable. She wants rehab in CA or rehab in TX as he has family in both places if possible.

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.
