Kent, WA Drug and Alcohol Rehab and Options for Addiction Recovery Support

There are several excellent alcohol and drug rehab programs in the Kent, Washington area. But there are also many other ways for people to get the help they need to recover. For example, 12-Step programs can be an excellent way for people to get support during this important time in their lives.

Organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous offer weekly meetings to help people get the help they need. Both of them offer peer support, which has been shown to be effective in addiction recovery.

Families are often struggling because of a loved one’s addiction, and they may feel lost. Some may not know where to turn to get support or help for their situations, and they can easily fall into enabling behaviors. Al-Anon and Alateen are there to help families and young people. They also offer weekly support group meetings.

We are not affiliated with these programs in any way, but we know they can work. These are just some of the examples of addiction recovery resources in the Kent area.

The Dangers of Overdosing


Never before have overdoses been so fatal and so numerous in the United States. With the emergence of fentanyl, a powerful opioid, along with an increasingly addicted population, people are losing their lives to drug overdoses at unprecedented levels.

In 1999, for example, about 16 thousand Americans died of a drug overdose. In 2017, over 70 thousand people were killed by the same cause. That’s an increase of more than 316% in less than two decades.

It’s never been more important than it is now to be able to recognize the signs of an overdose and to know how to treat one effectively.

Not all overdoses look the same. And that can make it a bit difficult to spot the signs early on.

Below are some of the most recognizable signs of an overdose for some of the most commonly abused drugs today.

Prescription Opioids – The main purpose of these medications is to treat pain in patients. But while they’re helpful when properly used, they can be incredibly addictive when they’re abused. Some signs of an overdose on prescription opioids like OxyContin or Vicodin include:

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
  • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
  • Slow, shallow breathing
  • Choking or gurgling sounds
  • Limp body
  • Pale, blue, or cold skin

Cocaine – Cocaine has long been one of the most highly abused drugs in the United States. But it can also be deadly too. Some signs of an overdose on this drug could include:

  • Seizures
  • Loss of awareness of surroundings
  • Loss of urine control
  • High body temperature, severe sweating
  • High blood pressure, very fast heart rate or irregular heart rhythm
  • Bluish color of the skin
  • Fast or difficulty breathing
  • Death

Alcohol – Legal, widely available, and socially accepted, alcohol is very much a part of life for many. But when it’s consumed in unsafe amounts, it can lead to alcohol poisoning. Here are some of the signs to watch out for:

  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Slow breathing (less than eight breaths a minute)
  • Irregular breathing (a gap of more than 10 seconds between breaths)
  • Blue-tinged skin or pale skin
  • Low body temperature (hypothermia)
  • Passing out (unconsciousness) and can't be awakened

Crystal Meth – A powerful stimulant that’s equally as addictive, crystal or “ice” as it’s sometimes called can be incredibly deadly when taken in excess. Some signs of a meth overdose include:

  • Agitation
  • Chest pain
  • Coma or unresponsiveness (in extreme cases)
  • Heart attack
  • Irregular or stopped heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Very high body temperature
  • Kidney damage and possibly kidney failure
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Stroke

Benzodiazepines – Prescription drugs that include medications like Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin, benzos are also becoming more and more abused. And like other addictive substances, overdosing on them can also be quite dangerous. Below are some symptoms of a benzo overdose.

  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Nystagmus (repetitive, uncontrolled eye movements)
  • Hallucinations
  • Slurred speech
  • Ataxia (lack of muscle coordination)
  • Coma
  • Hypotonia (overly relaxed muscles)
  • Weakness
  • Altered mental status, impairment of thinking
  • Poor memory
  • Shallow breathing
  • Low blood pressure

HeroinPerhaps the most notorious illicit drug today, heroin use is on the rise all over the country. And so are overdoses. The signs of a heroin overdose usually include:

AIRWAYS AND LUNGS

  • No breathing
  • Shallow breathing
  • Slow and difficult breathing 

EYES, EARS, NOSE, AND THROAT 

  • Dry mouth
  • Extremely small pupils, sometimes as small as the head of a pin (pinpoint pupils)
  • Discolored tongue 

HEART AND BLOOD 

  • Low blood pressure
  • Weak pulse 

SKIN 

  • Bluish-colored nails and lips 

STOMACH AND INTESTINES 

  • Constipation
  • Spasms of the stomach and intestines 

NERVOUS SYSTEM 

  • Coma
  • Delirium
  • Disorientation
  • Drowsiness
  • Uncontrolled muscle movements

The first step is spotting the signs of an overdose. After that, it’s all about getting qualified help quickly. Consequently, calling 9-1-1 immediately is one of the most crucial steps of treating an overdose.

The operators on the other end of the line will be able to send an ambulance to your location while also instructing you on vital next steps you can take, including administering CPR.

If you do have to leave the side of a victim – even for a minute – it’s critical that you place them into what’s known as the recovery position. This position can help cut down on serious complications that can occur, some of which may be deadly.

The operator will only be able to instruct you on what to do next if they have accurate information. And that means being completely honest and accurate about the situation. Do not lie about the use of illicit drugs. Do not lie about how much was taken. And do not lie about whether they were mixed with other drugs.

Withholding any information here can mean the difference between life or death.

Once the ambulance does arrive, the emergency service workers will be able to administer a higher level of care (like using overdose-reversing drugs such as naloxone) before transferring them to the hospital.

In the end, responding quickly and answering questions honestly is key to ensuring the best possible outcomes.

Local Support Groups Near Kent, Washington

No matter how moderate or severe an addiction may be, the overwhelming majority of addicts will need a stable system of support in order to overcome their drug habits.

The problem, however, is knowing where to find that support. For some, it may come in the form of friends and family members. For others, they may have to actually seek out support wellsprings.

And thankfully, there are so many local support groups around Kent, WA that offer just that. Below are some of the closest and most helpful in the area.

The original 12-step group, Alcoholics Anonymous is probably one of the most widely known support groups in the world. And since its founding in 1935, it’s grown to include more than 2.1 million members around the world.

AA meetings are so popular for a couple of reasons. They’re 100% free to attend, members don’t have to register their full names (hence the “anonymous”), they offer an incredible source of support during recovery, and meetings are easy to find nearly anywhere in the country.

Below are the AA meetings taking place within Kent. And there are a lot to choose from.

Originally an offshoot of AA, Narcotics Anonymous has grown to become incredibly popular in terms of support groups. Also known as NA, it follows a similar 12-step model as Alcoholics Anonymous.

But unlike AA, its doors are open to substance abusers of all kinds, not just alcoholics.

And while it may not be as easy to find a meeting as with AA, there are still plenty of groups in and around Kent. Below are some of the closest.

Addicts themselves aren’t the only ones who suffer during a substance use disorder. And in fact, friends and family members often need just as much support as an alcoholic during recovery.

That’s where Al-Anon comes in. This 12-step program focuses specifically on those closest to a problem drinker and shows them how to stay happy, healthy, and supported.

Some popular topics may include:

And in the Kent area, there are quite a few Al-Anon meetings taking place nearby.

An Al-Anon offshoot for young people, Alateen is dedicated to bringing together younger friends and family members of alcoholics to promote healing and support. Sometimes simply being around people of similar ages can open up a whole new world of comfort and support.

As a note, each group has their own suggested age range to be aware of.

Around Kent, there are quite a few meetings to look into, too.

Growing up in an alcoholic home can be traumatizing. And for many, that trauma can carry over well into their adult years too.

This trauma can be quite destructive and can make it hard to function in a healthy way. That’s where Adult Children of Alcoholics or ACoA comes in. Another 12-step group, ACoA has helped countless individuals address and cope with their past trauma brought on by an alcohol friend or family member.

While there aren’t any meetings taking place within Kent itself, there are still quite a few to choose from in the surrounding areas.

A 12-step group alternative, SMART Recovery aims to promote recovery and sobriety through a different model. Groups are widely available and run independently from each other. But SMART Recovery is non-spiritual and led by a certified instructor rather than members themselves.

There are quite a few SMART Recovery groups taking place nearby, too.

Sometimes it can be hard to make it to face-to-face groups like those above. It could be because of an incredibly tight schedule, a lack of transportation, or even the shame of admitting there’s a problem in the first place.

But no matter the reason, there are actually online alternatives that can offer substantial support. Below are just some of the best to get started with.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

Having the proper amount of social support is vital for a successful recovery. But in the overwhelming majority of cases, it alone isn’t enough to ensure long-term sobriety. And for many, it’s going to take the care of a professional treatment program to kick an addiction for good.

A professional treatment program without a doubt provides the best shot at staying sober for the long haul. These programs are designed to offer evidence-based treatments that are proven to help support recovery in a safe and comfortable setting.

And if you’re serious about your or your loved one’s recovery, a professional program is the way to go.

Professional programs offer the best success rates – that much is clear. But there are also plenty of other benefits to these facilities that many people don’t consider. Below are some of the most notable.

  • Connects patients with other people going through the same thing and provides an immediate social support network.
  • Many offer addiction medications that can help eliminate withdrawals and overwhelming cravings.
  • Provides one-on-one counseling that helps to get at the root of substance abuse while also identifying any co-occurring disorders that can make recovery more difficult.
  • May include a range of amenities that can make the recovery process far more comfortable and healthier.
  • Include medical and nursing staff for preventing and treating serious complications that can be life-threatening in some cases.

In general, there are two main types of programs: detoxification and rehabilitation

Detoxification – This type of program deals with the first stage of recovery known as withdrawal. This is when the patient first quits the addictive substance and goes through a host of uncomfortable side effects or withdrawals. These can include physical symptoms (headache, nausea, cold sweats, etc.) and psychological ones (depression, anxiety, paranoia, etc.). 

A professional detox program helps keep patients from turning back to using in order to get relief from these symptoms. On top of that, going through withdrawal without proper support can actually end up being quite dangerous. And a professional program keeps patients safe throughout the process. Alcoholism detox, for example, can be deadly on its own. And a professional program is the only way to stay safe throughout. 

Rehabilitation – A rehab program comes after detox and is more concerned with treating the mental side of addiction. It uses a range of treatments and therapies (e.g., counseling, group talk, behavioral therapy) to reverse or rewire the destructive subconscious behaviors that have led to continued substance abuse. 

There are three main types of rehab programs too. 

  • InpatientAn inpatient program usually lasts for about 30 days and requires patients to stay on the campus grounds at all times. That means eating, sleeping, and treatment all take place in the same central location. And while it’s the highest form of care available, it can be quite disruptive for people in school or with a full-time job.
  • Outpatient An outpatient program is usually around 3 months long and is far more flexible. Patients in these programs carry out their days normally and receive treatment in the evenings several times a week. This, however, can make relapse more likely compared to an inpatient program since patients are on their own during the day and some nights.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) An IOP attempts to offer the best of both worlds. It provides the flexibility of outpatient since treatment sessions are in the evenings. And it offers the intensiveness of inpatient since treatment sessions are longer and occur more frequently throughout the week than a typical outpatient program. In this way, it offers a high level of treatment with surprising flexibility. 

Alcohol and Drug Rehab Facilities in Kent

Finding a quality rehabilitation program in Kent, or nearby, is really important. There are many different options, but they are not all the same. People who want to start professional treatment should be looking for a few different characteristics. They should:

  • Find a program that is private and small.
  • Choose a rehab center that is in-network with their insurance company.
  • Opt for a treatment facility that offers the desired form of care.
  • Choose a program that provides individual treatment plans for their clients.
  • Find a program that has excellent online reviews.

It can be difficult to decide which rehab program will be best. But taking the time to do some research before making the decision will definitely help.

There are ten drug and alcohol rehab centers that are located directly in the city of Kent. There are additional options available in the surrounding cities of Renton, Federal Way and Auburn. There are a total of 16 treatment programs within a 5-mile radius according to the SAMHSA treatment locator.

All 16 of the rehab centers that are located in the Kent area offer outpatient treatment only. In order to find an inpatient program, people need to search outside of the city.

Outpatient treatment can be very effective under the right circumstances. Many people who live in Kent may find that it is exactly what they need.

About Our Idaho Outpatient Addiction Recovery Program

At Ashwood Recovery, our outpatient treatment center is considered to be one of the best in the region. We have two different locations in Idaho; one in Boise and one in Nampa. That makes it very convenient for those who live close by to choose the one they prefer.

Our outpatient program is made up of three different levels of care. We offer a more traditional outpatient program, an IOP, and a partial hospitalization program. Because we can provide our clients with such a variety in treatment, it is much easier for us to tend to their needs.

At Ashwood Recovery, we treat our clients like individuals. Their addictions are unique, which is why we put together detailed and personalized treatment plans for each person we help.

People who live in the Kent area might be more interested in going to rehab closer to home. We also have an outpatient program in Washington State called Northpoint the Evergreen. They have two locations in Seattle and Bellevue. Their services are very similar to what we offer at Ashwood Recovery.

Assistance for Those Seeking Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Even though outpatient programs can work really well, some people need inpatient treatment in order to be successful. This is especially true for anyone who has never had any type of treatment before. We do have an inpatient facility that is located in Edmonds, Washington called Northpoint Washington.

At Northpoint Washington, they offer treatment for both alcoholism and drug addiction. Their patients have access to both detox and rehab services, and the transition between the two is seamless.

There are a lot of benefits to going to an inpatient program. They can help by providing family therapy for patients who need to repair important relationships in their lives. During treatment, patients undergo many different types of therapy, including group and individual sessions. Also, for those who need to go through detox, inpatient treatment is required. It is best to detox in a monitored facility in case of a potential emergency situation.

Does Health Insurance Cover the Cost of Rehab?

Many people refuse to even talk about going to rehab because of the costs involved. What they often do not realize is that their health insurance will help to cover the costs and make it more affordable for them. This change was put into effect in 2010 with the passing of the Affordable Care Act.

It is difficult to say how much each person will need to pay to go to rehab. Some health insurance companies may cover treatment in full. Others may require patients to pay a small copay. In general, those who choose an outpatient program are much more likely to have it completely covered as a part of their insurance benefits.

At Ashwood Recovery, we have made it a priority to partner with as many insurance companies as possible. We are always working on becoming in-network with more. Currently we are in-network with many of the major insurance providers in our area. These include Blue Cross of Idaho, Cigna Health Insurance and Aetna.

Ashwood Recovery: The Premier Option for Addiction Treatment

There are plenty of addiction resources in the Kent, Washington area – that much is clear. And when it comes time to partner with a professional program, one of the best options in the Pacific Northwest is Ashwood Recovery.

At Ashwood, our Intensive outpatient programs are designed only using evidence-based treatments. And with fully individualized programs for each of our patients, you can be sure you’re getting only the highest level of care.

Plus, Ashwood Recovery is proud to be one of the few treatment programs that are nationally accredited by the Joint Commission – a testament to our commitment to high-quality addiction treatment.

Added to that, travelling outside of your hometown for treatment can bring with it a host of benefits such as taking your recovery more seriously, avoiding encounters with people you may know, and helping to reduce the chances of quitting.

In the end, Ashwood Recovery isn’t right for everybody. Contacting and consulting with an addiction professional can help you determine if you’re a good match.
