Seeking: Non 12 step rehab program that does not use drug replacement therapy
Reason(s): Has been using for 7 years and has gone through drug detox 3 times, and after each goes right back to abusing opiates. Tried outpatient rehab but they always put him on methadone or suboxone, and then he either uses those to get high or sells them to get oxy or other pills off the street. Has a friend that almost died from this addiction but beat it after long term rehab in a non 12 step rehab program in CA or FL (he did not know for sure). Said he loved how non 12 step rehab centers do not believe in labeling him as diseased for life. He always felt he could beat this addiction if he had the right help, but just cannot do it on his own. Said the life skills courses that are provided in non 12 step treatment programs are valuable to him because he never really moved on in life after high school and wants a fresh start.

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.
