AA, NA, and Al-Anon Meetings in Mountain Home, ID

Experts say that Idaho is currently facing a “heroin tsunami”. Alcohol and crystal meth are problems here, too. It’s time for residents to get the support they need.

Recently, an article published in Idaho Statesmen profiled Cindy Schaffner, an Idaho woman who lost her daughter to drug addiction.

Her daughter, Cathryn Mason, died after a battle with drugs at the young age of 19 years. She was found with a mixture of heroin and alcohol in her system.

Unfortunately, this story is all too common in the Gem State. Each year, nearly 120 Idaho residents die of an opioid overdose. Dozens of others overdose on other drugs and are killed in drunk-driving accidents.

Addicts need to know that help is available…

There are too many addiction resources in the Greater Boise area for us to lose so many people.

The AA and NA meetings in Mountain Home, for example, offer help and support to the addicts who need it.

While these meetings aren’t the solution to the state’s opioid crisis, they can certainly help. We’ve compiled a list below in hopes that it may help to connect addicts with the support they need.

Alcoholics Anonymous: Helping Mountain Home Residents Get Sober

Alcoholics Anonymous is an organization that has been conducting daily recovery support meetings for nearly 100 years.

Alcoholics Anonymous: Helping Mountain Home Residents Get Sober

Every day in Mountain Home, Boise, and every other city around the country, addicts gather to talk about their addictions and listen to other people’s stories. Every time a member attends a meeting, they update the group on the progress of their recovery and the steps they’ve taken to get back on the right path.

AA certainly isn’t for everyone. But, some alcoholics credit “The Program” as being the best thing that ever happened to them. The best way to determine if it’s right for you is to go to a meeting with an open mind and see how you feel.

The best way to determine if it’s right for you is to go to a meeting with an open mind and see how you feel.

Narcotics Anonymous: Fighting Idaho’s Drug Problem

AA isn’t the only addiction recovery organization in Idaho. There’s also Narcotics Anonymous.

Much like Alcoholics Anonymous, this group provides addicts with a place they can go to find support. But unlike AA, this one caters to those who are addicted to drugs.

Narcotics Anonymous: Fighting Idaho’s Drug Problem

In NA, members get together to talk about how drugs affected their lives, why they quit (or want to quit), and the steps they’re taking to turn their lives around. The members of this organization are welcoming and compassionate people who are eager to see their peers get clean.

It doesn’t matter what your drug of choice is—prescription pills, Oxycontin, cocainecrystal meth, etc—this group will be happy to have you. All they ask is that you show up with the desire to change.

Al-Anon Offers Support to the Families of Addicts

Is the addiction of a loved one affecting your life? There’s a support group for you, too.

Mountain Home Addiction Resources

Al-Anon is a group designed for those individuals whose lives have been impacted by the addiction of a loved one. Like AA and NA, this organization holds meetings on a daily basis in cities all over the country.

In these meetings, the parents, children, spouses, and other family members of addicts gather to talk about how the situation is affecting them. They share their feelings of guilt, shame, and anger. They talk about their stress and embarrassment.

Al-Anon Offers Support to the Families of Addicts

Ultimately, they work to overcome these feelings and recognize that their loved one’s addiction is not their fault.

Many individuals find that this support network is a necessary resource for them during this particularly trying time.
