AA, NA, and Al-Anon Meetings in Hayden, ID

Kootenai County’s overdose rate is FAR above the Idaho state average. We need to help our friends and family members before it’s too late. 

Last year, nearly 250 Idaho residents died of a drug overdose. And, unfortunately, roughly 10% of them were Kootenai County residents

The opioid problem has gotten so bad in Idaho’s 3rd-largest county that some have referred to it as a “heroin tsunami”.

“We have seen a significant increase in the usage of heroin in our community,” said Chief Scot Haug, who works as a police officer in Post Falls. 

And while heroin is certainly one of the county’s biggest drug problems, it’s not the only problem. 

Methamphetamine, cocaine, alcohol, are destructive to the area’s residents, too. Although initiatives like the Idaho Meth Project have worked tirelessly to decrease the presence of crystal meth in the region, several people are still arrested for trafficking and possession every month. 

Do You Have Questions About Addiction? Call Our Recovery Experts Now.

The problem, of course, is that these drugs ruin lives. Even if addicts don’t die from an overdose, they can still face life-altering consequences. 

It’s crucial, therefore, that we get our family members and friends the help they need. 

Luckily, help is available.

The AA and NA meetings in Hayden and other nearby towns can provide addicts with the support they need to get sober. 

So, if you or a loved one is currently struggling with addiction, take a look below. We’ve outlined a list of addiction resources in the area that could help you turn your life around.

Narcotics Anonymous: Fighting Drug Addiction in Western Idaho

Narcotics Anonymous is a twelve-step program that aims to help drug addicts overcome their substance abuse problems. 

By offering help, support, and companionship, this group works hard to ensure that addicts understand they aren’t alone in their struggle. 

The group holds daily meetings, or support groups, in which addicts gather to discuss their lives and recovery journeys. Dozens of people attend each meeting. 

There are no requirements for joining the group. Most of the meetings are open to anyone and all of them are free. 

“Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” - J.K Rowling

The group does not care about which drug its members are addicted to, so you’re likely to find meth addicts, crack addictsheroin addictspill addicts, and even marijuana addicts in each meeting. 

The most important thing you’ll find there, though, is a warm and welcoming group that is happy you showed up. One of the central tenants of NA is personal connection, so everyone there will be eager to meet you, hear your story, and help you in whatever ways they can.

Does Narcotics Anonymous sound appealing to you? Could you benefit from the support and compassion of a group who understands what you’re going through?

Alcoholics Anonymous: A Support Group for Problem Drinkers

It’s easy to overlook the dangers of alcohol. Just because it’s legal and you can buy it at the corner store doesn’t mean that it can’t destroy your life. 

In fact, alcohol destroys a lot of lives. Each year, nearly 90,000 Americans die from alcohol-related causes. Whether they lose their lives in impaired driving accidents or from diseases like liver cancer, alcohol poisoning, or pancreatitis, these folks all die from things that could have been prevented. 

Luckily, Alcoholics Anonymous can help to end the problem before it worsens. Much like NA, this group offers free recovery support to the addicts who need it. 

“AA does not teach us how to handle drinking. It teaches us how to handle sobriety.” - Alcoholics Anonymous

Founded nearly a century ago in Akron, Ohio, this group has helped countless alcohol addicts to overcome their drinking habit. Meetings take place every single day in Hayden and thousands of other towns around the country. 

Like NA members, the people who belong to this group work through the 12 Steps. This helps them to confront their past behaviors, accept the flaws in their personality, and develop methods for being the best person possible in the future.

If you are looking for a supportive recovery group to meet with, you don’t have to look far. There are meetings held every day in your area.

Al-Anon: Supporting the Family Members of Addicts

Al-Anon is one of the best ways to find support when a family member is addicted.

Hayden Addiction Resources

After all, addiction is an all-encompassing condition. It tends to affect a lot of people outside of the addict themselves, including their family

When your child, parent, sibling, or spouse is addicted to drugs or alcohol, it can cause a lot of complicated feelings within you. You’ll probably feel angry at them. You’ll probably feel depressed. You may even feel guilty as if it’s your fault. Sometimes, you’ll feel all of these things at once. 

But, it’s important for you to realize that your family member’s behavior is out of your control. No matter what you do or say, you won’t be able to change them. They are the only person who can change their behavior. 

This program is intended to help the people who love addicts come to terms with this fact. By meeting with others who’ve been through the same situation, Al-Anon members learn that it’s possible to live their own life.

Is one of your family members addicted to drugs? Do you love an alcoholic? 

Well, this program could be very beneficial for you. If you’re interested, you may want to try one of the meetings listed below.

Alateen: Helping the Young Family Members of Addicts

Like Al-Anon, this group caters to the needs of people who love addicts. 

However, Alateen is designed for kids. After all, addiction is a complicated topic that can be hard for children to wrap their heads around. 

By educating kids about why addiction occurs, this program intends to help kids understand how their loved ones came to be in the situation they’re in. It also aims to prevent children from developing feelings of guilt later on in life. 

Unfortunately, there’s only one meeting in the Hayden area right now. 

Here’s the info:

Wednesdays @7:00 PM
St Pius Alateen Meeting
Saint Pius X Parish Catholic Church
625 East Haycraft Avenue
Coeur D'Alene, Idaho 83815

This meeting is open to all, but you must call to RSVP ahead of time. You can reach out to Cindy at 510-604-8565 or Tara at 208-755-8849 to let them know you’re coming. 

If you are unable to make it out to Coeur D Alene for this meeting, you may be able to bring children to a normal Al-Anon group. However, you may want to discuss this with the group facilitator ahead of time.

Drug and Alcohol Detox near Hayden, ID

Before you start going to Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings, you may need to go through drug or alcohol detox

After all, addiction is a physical disease and it may take some time for you to overcome your physical withdrawal symptoms

When you quit using drugs, you experience a wide range of side effects. Some of these (such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea) last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Others (such as anxiety and depression) can last many months. 

Professional detox programs can help you to manage these symptoms, particularly during your first few weeks. 

In these programs, you’ll go through withdrawals under the supervision of medical professionals. These doctors will take every step possible to ensure that you’re safe and comfortable as you flush the drugs out of your system. 

Currently, there are about 10 detox facilities in the Hayden area.

Hayden, ID Drug Rehab Programs

Typically, addicts go through addiction rehab after they complete detox. This helps them to focus on the recovery process after they’ve gotten all of the drugs out of their body. 

It’s important to remember that addiction is a two-part condition. There are the physical aspects that are treated during detox. But, it’s also an emotional condition. Therefore, the emotional side of addiction needs to be treated through counseling

This is why addiction rehab exists. In a rehab program, addicts spend several weeks meeting with therapists and counselors. These addiction professionals help them to understand why they became addicted and how they can avoid relapsing in the future.

Oftentimes, AA and NA meetings are far more beneficial if the addict attends rehab first. It’s not a necessity, but it’s very helpful for many people. 

At the moment, there are between 10 and 15 rehab programs in the Hayden region. 

Ashwood Recovery

Ashwood Recovery Can Help You Get Sober

If you want to get the most out of your 12 Step meetings, it may benefit you to go through detox and rehab first. 

Ashwood Recovery can offer you both of those services. 

Located in Boise, only a one-hour flight from Hayden, Ashwood is one of Idaho’s premier addiction treatment programs.

We’ve been lucky enough to help hundreds of Idaho residents turn their lives around, and we can help you too. 

If you’d like to come out to Boise and spend some time with us, give us a call today. We can assess the nature of your addiction and discuss potential treatment options. 

We’ll help you get back on the right path.
