Addicts themselves aren't the only ones that need support. Friends and family members also need guidance on how to heal from their problems that have occurred because of their loved one’s drinking.

This Al-Anon offshoot is designed for young people in particular. Members are restricted to a specific age range (usually 10-20yrs). This typically makes it much easier to open up, share, and feel comfortable in the space. 

Unfortunately, there aren’t any Alateen meetings taking place within 100 miles of Filer, ID. However, you can take a look at their online group directory to find a meeting in other nearby areas. 

Similar to how AA has Al-Anon, so too does NA have Nar-Anon. This group is specifically for friends and family members of substance addicts, not just alcoholics. 

Some common topics of conversation may include:

Not all support has to come from a 12-step group. And SMART Recovery is one of the best 12-step alternatives around. 

It uses the latest in addiction research to empower members to overcome their cravings, avoid triggers, and prevent relapse. Groups are non-spiritual in nature and are led by certified instructors rather than members themselves. 

There’s one meeting happening in nearby Twin Falls to have a look at. 

Twin Falls, Idaho- Thursday 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
560-570 Shoup Avenue West
83301 Twin Falls Idaho
Meeting: #3785
Public Standard

Not everyone will have time to make it to in-person meetings. But luckily, there are more flexible options available. And online support groups are some of the best. 

These groups only require an internet connection and a smart device/laptop to attend. And that means that many people can use them to get the support that might have otherwise been out of reach. 

Below are some of the best places to get started.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

While support groups are an integral part of any relapse prevention plan, they alone aren’t often going to be enough to keep a recovering addict from using again. And many will need a much higher level of care in order to overcome the powerful cravings associated with recovery. 

Professional treatment programs fill that need. They use evidence-based strategies and tools to give recovering addicts the absolute best chances of getting clean and staying clean for good. 

And without them, most people will unfortunately succumb to old bad habits again not long after quitting. 

There are two stages to professional treatment in particular: detoxification and rehabilitation

Detoxification is the first stage of recovery, and it deals primarily with the initial stages of getting clean known as "withdrawal."

This period is especially hard to get through because it’s typically accompanied by a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Some of these symptoms include: 

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Muscle aches
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting 

For some, these symptoms can actually be so distressing that users will turn back to drugs simply to get relief. 

A professional detox program is designed to treat these symptoms so that they’re much more bearable. On top of that, they also prevent serious complications that, without the right care, can actually be deadly. 

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation is the next step after detoxification. And if detox is concerned mainly with the physical side of addiction, rehab is all about the mental side.  

Using one-on-one counseling, group talk sessions, behavioral therapies, and other treatments, rehab teaches patients how to overcome the compulsive drug-seeking and self-destructive behaviors often associated with addiction.  

There is a range of different rehabilitation programs, but the three most common are inpatient, outpatient, and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)
