Seeking: Non 12 step drug rehab center with holistic biophysical rehab inclusion
Reason(s): Husband had a heart problem and they had read about the death of actor, John Ritter, from a similar problem. His cardiologist suggested surgery but it was not an emergency visit, just tests, so made it an elective surgery. They opened his chest and found surgery not needed but the action created obstructed bowels as a secondary problem. Soon after, he had to take out a large part of his intestines. With the pain being so severe he ended up with an opiate addiction. It has been 2 years and has lost his ability to teach due to this addiction. He wants to feel himself again and knows he’s not ‘an addict’ for life as other rehabs are going tell him. He heard from friends and reading on his own that non 12 step drug rehab centers offer a non disease based approach to handling drug addictions and also how biophysical detox will get all the opiates out of his body so that the cravings for the drug disappear. He is hoping to find something in Utah or not too far away 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.
