Answer by itsjustme
a lot of $ but if u or ur parents have health insurance rehab should be covered. insurance co’s talk like they won’t pay it but eventually will. if you have no insurance each state has drug rehab programs. do a search 4 the state you live in. if u don’t find info. call the united way (look up phone # in your city). tell them what type of services you need they can give you lots of info.

i don’t know if this is pertaining to u or a friend, but i wanted to say that getting help is important no matter what the cost. u can’t put a pricetag on life & death. i lost my oldest daughtr to drugs 3 1/2 yrs. ago, 4 mos. later i had to put my son (then 16 yrs) in rehab. 1st the insurance co said they were not going to pay bcuz he had not had prior drug problms &it wasn’t serious enough. HA! it’s all about $ to them. i told them we were putting him in rehab anyway even if we had to sell our house. they ended up paying. my neice went through rehab through the state of oklahoma. check around and find the help you or your friend needs. good luck!

    About 90% of rehabs are nothing more than a crash course in AA/NA. The rest are Narconon, which is a Scientology front, or religion-based.

    People in AA and NA joke about how a person spends thousands of dollars learning that they need “free” AA/NA meetings. Those meetings aren’t free in the long run, a study run by Dr. Walsh showed that people in AA did not fare well and ended up requiring more expensive treatment.

    “There, the success rate of A.A. was again negative — worse than zero. A.A. was hurting people by making it harder for them to quit and stay sober. Those patients who got no A.A. “treatment” at all were better off.”

    Other studies showed that people in AA were more likely to end up binge drinking (Brandsma):
    or dead (Vaillant):
    while Dr. Ditman showed that AA were more likely to be re-arrested:

    Doctors Orford and Edwards found that having a doctor talk to the patient for just one hour was just as effective as a whole year of A.A.-based treatment:

    AA has about a 5% success rate. So does no treatment at all.

    “There is a high rate of recovery among alcoholics and addicts, treated and untreated. According to one estimate, heroin addicts break the habit in an average of 11 years. Another estimate is that at least 50% of alcoholics eventually free themselves although only 10% are ever treated. One recent study found that 80% of all alcoholics who recover for a year or more do so on their own, some after being unsuccessfully treated. When a group of these self-treated alcoholics was interviewed, 57% said they simply decided that alcohol was bad for them. Twenty-nine percent said health problems, frightening experiences, accidents, or blackouts persuaded them to quit. Others used such phrases as “Things were building up” or “I was sick and tired of it.” Support from a husband or wife was important in sustaining the resolution.”
    Treatment of Drug Abuse and Addiction — Part III, The Harvard Mental Health Letter, October 1995.

    AA is faith healing: if you feel that faith can be strong enough to overcome addiction, try a real religion, not some cult-like/cult-lite group that claims to be spiritual, not religious, but has been shown to be religious time and time again by the courts.
