A Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery Resource Guide for the Meridian, ID Area

There are many alcohol and drug addiction recovery resources in the Meridian, Idaho area. Substance abuse treatment is available to help anyone who needs it. But that is not the best solution for everyone. Unfortunately, many people do not realize that so much help is available to them. They often either attempt to quit on their own, or they continue to use. In their eyes, they have no other options. But we want people to know that this is not true at all.

What are Al-Anon and Alateen?

Al-Anon is an organization that was founded as a way to help the families of alcoholics and addicts. People can attend weekly support group meetings and get connected with others who share similar circumstances.

What is Al-Anon What is Alateen

Alateen is a part of Al-Anon, but it is only for young people. It offers teenagers and young adults a place to meet others and find encouragement and support.

Families with loved ones battling addictions should seriously consider attending Meridian area Al-Anon meetings. The following is a list of them in the community.

Online Support Groups – When Meetings Aren't Practical

Don't let a busy schedule or an aversion to public groups stand in the way of getting support.

NA has a website that is a great resource for information and discussion boards for people to gather at non-meeting times.

Online Support Groups – When Meetings Aren't Practical

You can also find AA groups online. There are a number of ways to get support from these groups, from forums to chat rooms to phone groups. Whatever you're comfortable with, there are people ready to help.

Choosing a Boise Alcohol and Drug Rehab for Recovery

Even though AA and NA meetings can be helpful, they are not the best approach for everyone. Some people really need the professional support that they can only get when attending some type of addiction treatment program. For these individuals, that is the best place to start their recovery journeys.

There are eight addiction treatment programs located within 5 miles of Meridian, according to the SAMHSA treatment locator tool. Still, that does not mean that people are limited to only those choices. There are close to 100 rehab facilities located within a 50-mile radius of the city. 

Obviously, there are plenty of options available. But that does not mean that every program offers the best care. It is important to choose a facility that is accredited through The Joint Commission and that offers the type of care that the person needs.

Treating an addiction should always include tailoring the program to the person’s needs. That also means choosing the right type of program. There are several options for drug and alcohol rehab treatment centers, and they include: 

Many people will have a preference, but most will be unsure about what type of program might work best for them. This can be partially be determined through the addiction assessment, and with the help of the facility’s medical team.

Our Outpatient Rehab Program

At Ashwood Recovery, we understand the varying needs of our clients. That is why we have strived to create a program that will provide them with the targeted treatment they need.

We offer an outpatient program that includes traditional OP, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP). We always take the time to get to know our clients so we can determine the best course of action for them to take. 

In addition, we understand the importance of treating co-occurring disorders alongside the addiction. Clients with anxiety, depression or another co-occurring mental health issue need dual diagnosis treatment during recovery. Otherwise, they are very likely to relapse.

What if Inpatient Treatment is the Best Option?

While outpatient rehab can work for some people, there are those who need an inpatient treatment program. This is especially true for those who are new to recovery. 

Our closest inpatient program is Northpoint Recovery in Boise. It offers the highest level of care available, and the patients all receive individualized treatment plans to help them reach their goals.

For patients in need of inpatient drug rehab, Northpoint Recovery has one of the best programs in the Boise area. It is a 28-day program that includes detox services if they are needed. After detoxing (if necessary), patients are able to move on to rehab and receive therapy.

Going to alcohol rehab is very important for alcoholics who want to recover. At Northpoint Recovery, their 28-day program will address detox, which is essential to help with withdrawal and avoid complications. Afterwards, therapy is provided during rehab to help with the root issues that led to the alcohol addiction.

You Can Get Government Assistance to Help With Your Recovery

Don't let concerns about health insurance stand in the way of you getting help. If you need help paying for treatment, go to https://www.healthcare.gov/ and find out how you can get assistance.

If you're not sure what coverage you'll get from your insurance, check out SAMHSA.gov. Here you can find information about the ACA and links with further information.

Does Health Insurance Pay for Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment?

Health insurance companies are mandated to provide benefits to help cover the cost of drug and alcohol rehab by law. This is great news for anyone who has been concerned about the costs associated with getting addiction recovery help. 

Ashwood Recovery is in network with many of the most popular health insurance companies in Idaho. That includes Blue Cross of Idaho. Our in network status helps to keep costs low for our clients so they can focus on getting treatment.
