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

More people are overdosing in Nez Perce County than ever before. It’s time to connect local addicts with the resources they need.

It’s no secret that Idaho has a serious drug problem. More Idahoans are dying from crystal meth and opioid overdoses than ever.

While nearby states like Montana and Washington are seeing a decrease in drug-related deaths, the Gem State’s problem only seems to be getting worse.

And it’s particularly prevalent in Nez Perce County. Nearly 5% of all of the overdoses deaths that occurred in Idaho happened in Lewiston and surrounding towns.

So, it’s time for the addicts who live in Idaho to get some help. Fortunately, there are all kinds of resources in the area that can offer support.

Narcotics Anonymous: Helping Drug Addicts Kick the Habit

One of the best ways to overcome a drug addiction is to spend time with recovered addicts. After all, it’s helpful to surround yourself with people who’ve lived through the same situations that you have.

And, it’s great to see living proof that recovery is possible.

This is why Narcotics Anonymous exists. This group provides addicts with the help and support they need to move beyond their addiction.

Throughout “The Program”, which many members call it, addicts work to identify the flaws in their personality and develop healthy techniques for coping with cravings. Each member chooses a “sponsor”, who is a recovered addict that acts as a mentor to them through their recovery journey.

Ultimately, the goal of NA is to get to a point where the addict is confident enough in their own sobriety that they can mentor others. Many members find that the sponsorship program is the most valuable aspect of this organization.

All meetings are free and there are no requirements for membership. Whether an individual is addicted to crackcocaineheroinbenzos, or any other drug, this group will welcome them with open arms.

How to Start Your Own NA Meeting

We’ll admit that there aren’t as many Narcotics Anonymous meetings in Lewiston as there should be. With only one or two within a 20-mile radius each day, addicts may not always have access to the support they need.

Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to start your own. All you really need is a meeting place, a few years of sobriety under your belt and a strong desire to help others.

So, if you’ve just moved to the area and find the current meeting selection to be insufficient, you should consider starting your own group. You’re likely to find that the local community is highly receptive to your efforts.

Alcoholics Anonymous: A Support Group for Problem Drinkers

The Alcoholics Anonymous program is similar to Narcotics Anonymous in the sense that it provides a support network for addicts.

Ammon Addiction Resouces

It operates the same, too. Each member works through the Twelve Steps in an attempt to move beyond their condition into a happier, healthier life.

The difference, of course, is that this program caters to alcoholics instead of narcotics users. This doesn’t mean that drug addicts are prohibited from attending but most of the conversation revolves around alcohol addiction.

In these meetings, alcoholics spend time discussing their addiction and talking about their experiences. They also update the group on their recovery progress.

While this program doesn’t work well for everyone, many individuals find that it’s a valuable resource for them.

Does Alcoholics Anonymous sound like it could be the right program for you? Are you trying to find a meeting in your area? Look no further!

There are plenty of them in Lewiston and just over the state line in Clarkston, Washington. We’ve listed a few below to help you find one.

Note: A few meetings are labeled “closed”. These meetings are only open to certain groups. Some of these meetings are gender-specific. Others are for veterans. Some are simply for people who’ve been in the Program for a while and are committed to sobriety.

Al-Anon: A Resource for Families

When someone is a drug addict or alcoholic, they don’t just hurt themselves. Oftentimes, they cause damage in the lives of their family members and friends, too.

Al-Anon is an organization that attempts to help these family members to cope with the damage that has been brought upon them.

Usually, the addiction of a family member makes people feel guilty, angry, or ashamed. In these meetings, individuals can work through these issues and attempt to overcome them.

So, if you are the parent, child, sibling, or spouse of an addict, this group could be great for you. The members of this organization have been through a similar situation, understand what you’re going through, and are eager to offer support.

Is your family member an addict or just a casual user? Are you enabling their addiction? Take one of these free online assessments to get answers.

You May Need Drug or Alcohol Detox First

Before you start going to AA or NA meetings, you may want to attend a detox program beforehand. If you don’t detox, these programs may not be effective.

See, when you’re addicted to a substance, your brain is chemically changed in a fundamental way. Essentially, it becomes trained to depend on the substance to function.

If the body is deprived of the substance, it has an adverse reaction. Addicts experience withdrawal symptoms, which are often quite painful and can last up to a week.

So, if you attempt to quit cold turkey and head straight to the meetings, you may find that the meetings are useless. After all, it’s hard to focus on the conversation when you’re going through withdrawals.

Going to detox first, though, will provide you with an opportunity to go through withdrawals in a safe environment. In these programs, doctors will monitor your withdrawal symptoms and do their best to ease your pain.

There are a number of different detox programs in Lewiston. Each of them has its unique own benefits and is catered to the needs of different types of people.

Rehab: The Next Step in the Recovery Process

After you go through medical detox, it’s helpful to spend some time focusing on sobriety. Rehab treatment gives you time and space to do so.

Addiction, after all, is just as much of an emotional condition as it is a physical one. So, in order to remain sober and avoid relapsing, addicts must confront their mental state and learn how to live

In rehab, addicts attend a regular schedule of therapy sessions and group support meetings. Some programs are residential, or inpatient programs, while others are non-residential, or outpatient programs.

Both types of rehab offer addicts the opportunity to come to terms with their addiction in a safe and supportive environment. However, each type provides a different type of support. So, any addict who is considering treatment should research the types of rehab programs before they choose one.

Currently, there are nearly a dozen rehab programs near Lewiston, so you have plenty of options to choose from.
