Seeking: Long term rehab; non 12 step drug rehab treatment
Reason(s): Truck Driver has been using various types of speed for many years and during the last 5 years has developed a meth addiction. He has done AA, NA and some short term rehab in the past but nothing has worked. He knows from friends who have resolved similar addictions, that taking the time to do long term rehab treatment is key and that non 12 step rehab centers have higher success rates and do not believe in telling him that he has some kind of disease that he cannot overcome. He feels that if he does not beat this addiction he’ll lose his life or hurt someone while driving long distances. He is unwilling to be a driver any more until this is handled.

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.
