The 12-step approach of AA proved so successful for treating alcoholism that it spawned a number of offshoots aimed at treating other types of addictive disorders. Narcotics Anonymous was one of the first of these offshoots. 

Rather than focusing on a single substance addiction though, NA opens up its doors to any type of substance abuse problem, including alcoholism. 

There are a few NA meetings in the Ketchum area to consider taking a look at.

Alcoholics themselves aren’t the only ones that need help. And in fact, friends and family members of problem drinkers can often experience serious problems because of their loved one’s addiction as well. 

Al-Anon is a 12-step group devoted to helping these people in particular. And around Ketchum, there are two meetings in particular.

Alateen is a branch of Al-Anon that’s specifically meant for friends and loved ones of alcoholics that are younger. Members of these groups are required to fall into a specific age range (usually around 10 -20 years) which can make it much easier for people to feel comfortable sharing. 

There’s only one meeting in a 100-mile radius however. You can find its info below.

Like Al-Anon, Nar-Anon is a friends and family group for addictions. But unlike Al-Anon, Nar-Anon opens up its doors to all kinds of addictions, not just alcoholism. 

Some common topics of discussion may include:

Unfortunately, there aren’t any Nar-Anon meetings taking place within 100 miles of Ketchum. However, you can have a look at their online group directory for meetings occurring in other nearby areas. 

Growing up with an alcoholic parent can be devastating. And many times, people who do so go on to have serious emotional and functional problems later in life. Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA) is a 12-step group devoted to helping these individuals in particular.

These groups take place over email, real-time chat, or even via video conferencing.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

Support groups are vital to a solid recovery plan. But they alone often aren’t enough to get recovering addicts clean and keep them clean. And for many, it’s going to take a much higher level of care. 

That’s where professional treatment programs come in. These programs use evidence-based techniques and tools to treat the toughest stages of the recovery process. And they give substance abusers the absolute best chance of kicking the habit permanently

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

Detoxification comes first in a recovery program. And it’s responsible for guiding patients through the uncomfortable first steps of getting clean called “withdrawal.” 

This is when the patient is assaulted by a range of seriously uncomfortable symptoms. Some of these symptoms include: 

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

These withdrawals can actually get so bad that many users tend to turn back to substance abuse, just to get some sort of relief. 

A professional detox program is designed to make this process as comfortable as possible. They use special medications and strategies to treat these symptoms and make detoxing far safer at the same time. 

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation comes after detox. And it’s more concerned with the long-lasting mental side of addiction. 

These programs focus on treating the compulsive drug-seeking and self-destructive behaviors that are often associated with addiction. They typically use a range of treatments such as one-on-one counseling, group talk sessions, behavioral therapies, and other methods.

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