Caller: Father of 2 sons that are 20 and 22 years old
Problem: Black tar heroin
Seeking: Separate long-term inpatient rehabs containing biophysical detox
Reason(s): Two brothers heavily addicted to smoking and injecting black tar heroin as well as participating in the illegal sales of marijuana and heroin. The oldest brother (22 years old) started smoking heroin first and introduced younger brother to the drug, and they have since gone to using needles. They live together in a two bedroom apartment which is paid for by their parents. Both have been robbed by other drug dealers/drug users for their money and drugs. The younger brother has been hospitalized once for overdosing and was found by his mother while she was bringing groceries to their home. Parents have threatened to disown the brothers and will no longer support them financially. Their father has found a biophysical detoxification rehab in Kentucky and Texas for brothers to enter into separately. The younger brother only agrees to attend treatment if the older brother attends as well. The 22 year old agrees to go into a treatment facility and is in agreement with attending separate rehab centers in order to work on their addictions individually and not feed off one another. The family is preparing for the brothers to be gone for several months in a long-term inpatient rehabilitation center.

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.
