    After Years Of Partying At College In Boston; Mother Tries To Find Non 12step Drug Rehab For Son’s Opiate Addiction

    Caller: Mother for 22 year old son

    Problem: Oxycontin addiction; general opiate addiction

    Seeking: Long term rehab; non 12 step rehabs for opiate addiction

    Reason(s): Thought they were all doing the right thing by having him move back home and finding the best doctor to treat him with suboxone. They found out today that he’s hooked on suboxone and abusing it along with using opiates and heroin. The family members who had similar problems said regular rehab in the New England area will not help him as they are all short term and all 12 step in nature. They are now very much committed to the idea of a non 12 step rehab center that works on cognitive (individual) therapy model without telling him that he is diseased or somehow a victim. He wants long term rehab treatment for this to really work. They all feel leaving the area is best; wants rehab in Texas or rehab in California so he can relocate easily once he completes.

    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.
