    School Teacher Wants Non 12 Step Rehab To Get Career Back

    Caller: 32 year old man

    Problem: Was addicted to pain pills now snorting heroin

    Seeking: Non 12 step drug rehab program outside of AL

    Reason(s): He had a neck injury two years ago and when he could no longer get pain medication, he found that using heroin would work just the same. The heroin was cheaper than buying pain pills off the street. He has lost his teachers job due to failed drug tests and has relapsed 3x’s. Has been going to traditional 12 step programs, which is the only type of program his insurance will cover. His mother told him about non 12 step rehab treatment centers with success rates of 70-90%. He’s ready to leave the state because he knows there is nothing like this in Alabama. He does not care how long it takes; he just wants to act while his mother is willing to help.

    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.
