    Army Vet Out Of Rehab Benefits Trying To Find Best Long-Term Treatment For Family To Consider

    Caller: 29 year old Woman

    Problem: Alcohol, pain pills and xanax

    Seeking: Long term rehab / non 12 step rehab program

    Reason(s): She has TriCare insurance from the military that provides only 3 rehab treatments over a lifetime. She has used all of them and still has not handled her drug and alcohol addictions. In fact, feels she has become much worse. They tell her she has PTSD and put her on more meds which made her feel drugged and unhappy. She wants help to handle the underlying issues causing her drug and alcohol addiction so she can get off all the drugs and medications. A family member who is a doctor, recommended a long term drug rehab but said it had to be a non 12 step program as they do not believe in treating it like a disease and using more meds. Instead, this type of drug and alcohol rehab will build her back up to a point where she can live a happy life without the need for drugs or alcohol.

    Most Insurance Accepted

    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.
