Burley, Idaho Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Resources

There are many drug and alcohol addiction recovery resources in Burley, Idaho. People with substance abuse problems often do not know where to turn when they need help. This usually results in one of two scenarios. They either just continue to use, or they try to stop on their own, which can be dangerous.

Support groups have been found to be an excellent way to recover from a drug or alcohol addiction. 12-Step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have helped millions of people all over the world. In addition, families often need support and guidance as well. Al-Anon is there for them to provide them with the assistance they need to get through their challenges.

Help is available for those who need it. We would like to take this opportunity to provide the resources that are available in Burley, as well as in the surrounding areas.

What is Alcoholics Anonymous?

Most people have heard of Alcoholics Anonymous, but they do not really know much about it. This organization has been around for several decades. It was started in 1935 by two men who were both alcoholics. They also both had a desire to stop drinking, and they believed a peer support system would help them and others to reach that goal. The first AA meeting was just the two of them in a room in Akron, Ohio.

Since that day, AA has grown incredibly. It is now possible to find an AA meeting in nearly every city in every state in the United States. There are also meetings in many other countries all over the world.

Millions of people have benefited from attending AA meetings. It is very helpful to have other people who also battle alcoholism to talk to. They understand what people are going through and can offer excellent support.

There are many different types of AA meetings. It is important to note the difference between open and closed. Anyone can attend an open meeting, even if they are not alcoholics. People usually like to bring a friend along for additional support when they go to open meetings for the first time. Closed meetings are only for people who are alcoholics.

In addition to being either open or closed, the meetings usually center on different topics. Some will go through all of the 12 Steps in order. Others will focus on one or two of the 12 Steps. There are speaker meetings and those that are just for discussion or studying the AA text, which is called The Big Book.

The people at AA meetings are always very friendly. They welcome new people joining them and are always willing to listen and befriend them when they come.

There are currently four different Burley AA meetings. They are all held at the same location, which is:

What is Narcotics Anonymous?

Narcotics Anonymous is an organization that was started as an answer to a need that drug addicts had to recover. AA was only for alcoholics, and people who were struggling with other types of substance abuse problems really had nowhere else to turn. They needed something that would provide the same type of support. NA gave that to them.

NA was started in 1955, and like AA, it quickly expanded. Most cities in the United States have some type of NA meeting for people to attend. What is interesting about this organization is that they are all-inclusive. They believe that all types of addictions need support. They also believe that just because a person is an alcoholic, that does not mean they should not attend NA. Anyone with any type of substance abuse problem at all can attend one of their meetings.

Like AA, Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit organization. They do not charge their members any type of membership fee in order to attend meetings. The only requirement is that they have a desire to stop using.

Some people claim that NA meetings are much more laid back and informal than AA meetings. They also have the open and closed formats, and anyone is allowed to attend an open meeting. The closed meetings are only for people recovering from addictions.

People who are attending NA usually plan to stay for about an hour and a half. During that time, the members have discussions with one another and there may also be special speakers and events.

The people at NA are very friendly. They always welcome newcomers very warmly, and many even try to make an instant connection with someone who is new to the program. People generally leave the meeting feeling like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. In time, it becomes more like a family get together than an obligation.

There are several Burley NA meetings, as well as many in the surrounding cities. This gives people plenty of options so they can find the one that will work the best for them.

What is Al-Anon?

Nothing can compare to the pain that the family of an addict experiences. They spend so much time worrying about their loved one, and yet they feel powerless to help them. Far too often, families fail to take care of themselves. Many end up feeling anxious, depressed, or even suffering from mental illnesses. They need a place to talk about what they are going through. That is why Al-Anon is so important.

Burley Addiction Resources

Al-Anon offers weekly meetings for the families of addicts to come together and discuss their situations and challenges. People are more than welcome to just come and listen, but those who get the most out of it are the ones who share with the group.

Anyone is allowed to attend Al-Anon, regardless of their age. People find unconditional support and encouragement and these meetings give them the strength to get through another week.

There are several Al-Anon meetings in Burley and the surrounding cities that take place throughout the week. The locations, days and times are as follows.

What is Alateen?

Alateen is a part of the Al-Anon organization. The only difference is that it is only for young people, teenagers and at times, older children.

For young people who have an addicted loved one, life can be extremely difficult. They may be forced to make choices that they do not understand. They face situations that no one their age should ever have to face. Many find it difficult to open up to their peers at school about what they are going through. Alateen provides them with that necessary outlet.

At Alateen meetings, young people can talk with each other about all of their challenges. They can make new friends and find like-minded people who understand what they are going through. This arm of Al-Anon has done so much to help teenagers and their work is vital.

There is only one Alateen meeting located near Burley. It is:

Hope Alateen
Thursdays at 6:00 pm
Hope & Recovery Resource Center
210 E. Center St.

Facebook

Young people are always welcome to attend Al-Anon meetings if they cannot find an Alateen meeting that is convenient for them. Also, they can access meetings online as well.

Alateen chat meetings are very popular among young people. They give them the opportunity to talk with other teens that are located all over the United States. These meetings are moderated by an adult at all times.

Advice for Families With Addicted Loved Ones

As we stated earlier, the families often suffer the most when someone they love is addicted. It can be a very difficult ordeal, and a lot of them face this challenge for years.

While finding support is very important for families, there is often more that needs to be done. For instance, when an addicted loved one is refusing treatment, and has no desire to stop, an intervention may be in order. This may help them see the need for treatment.

Quite often, families have more immediate concerns as well. They frequently worry that their loved one will overdose on drugs or drink too much and end up with alcohol poisoning. Both are valid concerns.

Whenever anyone is using drugs or drinking, there is always the possibility of an overdose. If it happens, it is important to be able to identify the signs and to know what to do because it is a medical emergency.

Alcohol poisoning can be a sometimes-deadly consequence of drinking too much. The problem is that it often appears as though the individual is just drunk. It can be easy to overlook the signs if one is not aware of what to look for.

The signs of alcohol poisoning include:

  • Becoming extremely confused
  • Excessive vomiting
  • Significant breathing issues (slower than normal, or long gaps in between breaths)
  • Pale skin or skin that has a blue tint
  • Hypothermia (low body temperature)
  • Becoming unconscious

Likewise, a drug overdose can be somewhat easy to overlook as well. When someone takes too much of a drug, or when they take multiple substances at once, they are at risk of overdosing. The risks are higher when they have tried to quit using and then relapsed.

The signs of a drug overdose include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Excessive vomiting
  • Bouts of confusion
  • Cool or clammy skin
  • Low or high blood pressure and pulse
  • Changes in body temperature

Symptoms can vary based on the type of drug that was taken as well. Any cause for concern should be reported by calling 911.

If an overdose is suspected, it is important to err on the side of caution and call 911. There should be no attempt to take the individual to the hospital without an ambulance. There may need to be life-saving measures performed by paramedics at the scene and attempting to transport the victim may even be fatal.

How Can Professional Addiction Treatment Help You Recover?

Sometimes people need more help for their addictions than what they can receive at AA, NA or even a free clinic. This is especially true for those who are new to recovery. Professional addiction treatment can address the issues behind the substance abuse problem. This can aid in the recovery process and give the addict a better chance at a positive long-term outcome.

There are some drugs that require detoxification. This is a step that should be taken at the beginning of the individual’s recovery. These drugs include:

  • Benzodiazepines
  • Prescription painkillers
  • Illegal opiates
  • Alcohol
  • Both legal and illegal stimulant drugs

Drug and alcohol detox helps in a few different ways. It can make the withdrawal symptoms much easier to deal with. It can also reduce the risk of any potential complications that can sometimes happen during withdrawal.

Most of all, detoxing helps people have a better chance at a successful recovery. Some experts believe that it is the most important part of the healing process for both addicts and alcoholics.

Drug and alcohol rehab is something that should be considered once the person has gone through detox. The goal of detoxing is to address the physical side of the addiction. Rehab helps by addressing the psychological side.

Regardless of what a person is addicted to, there is a reason behind it. People form addictions for all kinds of reasons. For example:

  • A man may get addicted to opioid painkillers accidentally because of physical pain.
  • A woman may experience excess stress, and so, she turns to alcohol as a way to cope.
  • A woman may start using marijuana because she suffers from anxiety and it helps to calm her.
  • A man may turn to heroin after being addicted to Vicodin, but may not be able to afford it any longer.
  • A woman may get addicted to Valium after having taken it for years for sleep or anxiety.

Those root causes must be addressed through therapy, which is what happens during rehab. It is an essential step that can only help people recover faster and stay quit longer.
