We recognize that anxiety, depression and emotional disorders often lead to self-medication and addictive behaviors. An addictive behavior (when not predisposed) usually stems from abusive environments, traumas, inappropriate sexual encounters that often lead to eating disorder, over-medicated prescriptions or other circumstances of emotional or psychological issues. There’s usually underlying unresolved issues that are isolated in the hypocampus and regulated by the amygdala part of the brain. Many cases are just diagnosed Bipolar to qualify for medications under insurance. Generally, there are current situations that trigger the emotions, and one seeks relief through alcohol abuse, prescriptions and/or self-medication of the emotional pain for relief. The underlying psychological issue creates a vicious cycle that is difficult to identify without advanced technology and experienced doctors.
Controlling emotional issues can be resolved with neuro-biofeedback or hyperbaric oxygen therapy to stimulate the neurotransmitter flow to the prefrontal cortex and improve memory, your ability to organize and, most of all, to regain emotional stability. The result? Affective adjustments with little or no medications for sustained recovery.
Frequently Asked Questions
Now is Non-12 Step Rehab Different That Traditional 12-Step Rehab Programs?
12-step is a rigid process made popular by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Many drug rehabs and hospitals use that same 12-step program for its simplicity, repeatability and social support. In a 12-step program, members are asked to:
- Admit you are powerlessness over your addiction
- Submit to a “Higher Power”
- Take a constant moral inventory
- Make a lifelong commitment to attend meetings
While 12-step programs may be effective for some, The Crosby Clinic’s research has found non-12 step rehab to be a more effective treatment to overcome addiction and achieves a higher success rate among patients.
Non-12 step rehab is philosophically different from 12-step programs. At The Crosby Clinic, we do not believe that you are powerless over addiction. In fact, non-12 step rehab empowers you with the treatment and tools to live a life free from addiction and emotional pain. And while addiction has affected your life, with proper diagnosis and treatment, you don’t have to spend the rest of your life in meetings to maintain your sobriety.
Does Insurance Pay For Non-12 Step Rehab?
Yes, depending on your coverage. In fact, non-12 step rehab is so effective that most insurance companies will pay for treatment. Depending on your benefits, insurance companies can pay 100 percent of the cost of treatment. Instead of verifying benefits on your own, allow a professional insurance specialist to work with your insurance provider to obtain the maximum benefit on your behalf.
Are All Non-12 Step Rehab Programs The Same?
No. There are significant differences between non-12 step programs. While 12-step programs are a rigid, defined process consistent across groups and locations, non-12 step programs allow for flexibility in treatment. At The Crosby Clinic, we individualize our treatment program for each patient as one of the most advanced non-12 step drug rehab facilities in the country. Using progressive technology such as brain scans and brain function tests, we can diagnose and treat addiction and its neurological root causes with greater accuracy.
Do You Have To Attend Daily Meetings?
No. If a patient has been accurately diagnosed and properly treated at a non-12 step rehab treatment center, they are not required to attend daily meetings to maintain sobriety. However, at The Crosby Clinic, we provide six months of daily follow-up and three years of free tune-ups.
How Much Does Non-12 Step Rehab Cost?
It depends. The cost for treatment varies greatly from facility to facility. Some facilities are ultra-luxurious spas. Treatment costs can be more than $80,000, and if they accept any insurance there is a high out-of-pocket expense. The Crosby Clinic accepts insurance so treatment can cost little or nothing.
