Vancouver, WA Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers and Addiction Recovery Alternatives

Attending an alcohol and drug rehab program in the Vancouver, Washington area is just one way to recover from an addiction. There are many other ways to get help and support as well. The problem is that most people do not know what their options are. As a result, they often end up continuing to try to quit on their own, and developing a dangerous cycle of addiction in the process.

Fortunately, there are many ways for people to get help, and several addiction recovery resources that are available. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are just two of them. Families can also find the support they need to cope with a loved one’s substance abuse problem through Al-Anon and Alateen.

Recovering from an addiction is a challenge, but the Vancouver area offers resources that can help. We are not affiliated with the organizations we listed above, but we do know how beneficial they can be. That is why we have included them here.

The Dangers of Overdosing


Without a doubt one of the most destructive consequences of a substance abuse problem, overdoses can cause permanent damage and even death.

And in recent years, the number of overdoses across the country has been on the rise. In fact, drug overdose is now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50. And with more than 70 thousand deaths in 2017 alone, it isn’t hard to see why.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to be able to spot the signs of an overdose and understand how best to treat them.

Not all types of drugs have the same symptoms of an overdose. And that can make it hard to spot the signs early on.

Below is a list of the most recognizable symptoms to be on the watch for, organized by drug type.

Cocaine – Coke has been one of the most notorious illicit drugs for quite some time. And when taken in high amounts, it can very easily lead to a life-threatening overdose. 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

Benzodiazepines – Benzos are usually used to treat conditions like depression or anxiety. But more and more, people are taking these prescription medications recreationally. And with more abuse comes more incidences of overdose. Some signs of a benzodiazepine overdose to watch for include:

  • 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

HeroinOne of the more dangerous street drugs, heroin abuse can very quickly lead to a fatal overdose. Some of 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

Alcohol – Unlike many other addictive drugs, alcohol is actually legal and widely available to anyone over the age of 21. But don’t be fooled – consuming too much of it can quickly lead to alcohol poisoning. And that can have fatal consequences. 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 – Equal parts addictive and powerful, meth is one of the most destructive drugs on the market today. 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

Prescription Opioids – Used to treat pain in the medical community, prescription opioids are powerful and especially addictive. 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

After spotting the signs of an overdose, the next step is to contact emergency services as quickly as possible. So if you do think someone is suffering from an overdose, call 9-1-1 immediately.

If you have to leave the side of the victim even for a minute, be sure to place them into the recovery position. This position can help cut back on some very dangerous complications that may occur like choking.

The operators on the other end of the line will likely ask a variety of questions to learn more about the situation. It’s vital to answer these questions honestly and accurately. The better information you can provide, the better the outcome will be for the victim.

Some questions they may ask might include:

  • What is the age, height, weight, sex, and condition of the victim?
  • What substance did they take, and did they have a legitimate prescription?
  • When did they last take the drug and how much was consumed?
  • Do they have a history of substance abuse?

The operator may also ask you to administer CPR or perform other actions like inducing vomiting. Be sure to follow their instructions exactly.

Once the EMTs arrive, they’ll begin administering more comprehensive care measures. They may also use overdose-reversing drugs like naloxone to improve the outcome. They’ll also likely transport the victim to a hospital.

In the end, being honest and accurate with the information you provide is key to helping the victim.

Local Support Groups Near Vancouver

Often one of the most underappreciated elements of a recovery plan, finding and taking advantage of a solid source of support is critical to maintaining sobriety. But the question is, where do you get it?

Does it come from friends? Or family members? Or specialized support groups?

The answer will depend upon the individual. And in most cases, it should come from a combination of the three.

And luckily, there are so many different local support groups that take place in and around Vancouver. Here’s where to find them.

Probably the most well-known support group across the world, Alcoholics Anonymous is widespread, easily accessible, and is a great source of companionship and guidance during recovery.

Meetings are easy to find and usually follow a group talk model. Members usually share their own experiences with their addiction and recovery. And others learn from their stories, triumphs, and tribulations.

AA is what’s known as a 12-step program. These steps encourage honesty, courage, humility, and accountability – all of which can make maintaining sobriety easier and more successful.

While Alcoholics Anonymous deals specifically with problem drinkers, Narcotics Anonymous is open to addicts of all types. It can be heroin, meth, crack, speed – any type of addictive drug user is welcome to attend.

And like AA, it follows the 12-step model to help members get much-needed support and to stay clean for the long-term.

While not as popular as AA, there are still plenty of NA meetings to choose from in the Vancouver area.

In most cases, it isn’t just the addicts that end up suffering from a substance use disorder. And in fact, friends, family members, and even associates of an alcoholic can end up needing just as much support as the substance abuser themselves.

Thankfully, there’s Al-Anon – a 12-step group devoted to helping friends and family members of alcoholics.

And in the Vancouver area, there are a fair number of Al-Anon meetings taking place.

An offshoot of Al-Anon, Alateen is a 12-step support group for younger people who have been affected by another person’s drinking.

The philosophy behind it is that people in this age range may have a hard time opening up and sharing their experiences with members outside their age group. By surrounding them with others like them, they can embrace the experience more freely and get the support they so desperately need.

Alateen groups are a bit harder to come by. But still, there are quite a few around Vancouver to look into.

Similar to the relationship between AA and Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous family members have Nar-Anon. These groups are devoted to helping those who have been hurt by another person’s substance abuse, whether it’s heroin, cocaine, meth, or even alcohol.

Alcoholism can be incredibly damaging, especially for those who have grown up in an alcoholic home. In fact, many people with alcoholic family members tend to have functional problems that can last well into adulthood.

For these individuals, there’s Adult Children of Alcoholics or ACoA. This 12-step group helps provide healing and support for individuals with a past traumatized by a loved one’s alcoholism.

Meetings are a bit harder to come by. But even still, there are plenty of ACoA meetings to consider.

Not all support has to come from a 12-step group. Some people may not agree that this model is the best way to move towards recovery. And others won’t feel like it matches their belief system.

Luckily, there are a number of 12-step alternatives. And SMART Recovery is one of the best.

These groups are locally and independently run, have a focus on evidence-based sobriety strategies, and are led by a certified instructor rather than members themselves.

And around Vancouver, there are quite a few to take a look at.

Finally, there are online support groups. These groups only require an internet connection and a smart device/computer to attend. And they offer far more flexibility compared to face-to-face meetings.

Below are some of the best online support groups to help you get started.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

When it comes to overcoming a substance abuse problem, support is obviously a vital part of the process. However, it often won’t be enough to kick an addiction for good on its own.

Instead, many addicts will need a much higher level of care. And that's where a professional treatment program comes into play. These programs are specifically designed to offer the best rates of recovery. That’s because they use evidence-based treatments that are scientifically proven to promote sobriety.

Added to that, they also offer a range of amenities and services that can make recovery far more comfortable than trying to quit alone. These may include addiction medications, specialized facilities, and a range of other treatments like nutrition-rich meal plans and exercise programs.

In the end, a professional treatment program is the absolute best way of improving the likelihood of a full recovery.

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

A detox program is the first phase, and it usually deals primarily with the physical side of recovery. Once an addict quits using, they're thrown into a whirlwind of nasty physical and psychological symptoms called withdrawals. Some of these withdrawals include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Tremors
  • Depression
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia

In many cases, these withdrawals can be so overwhelming that recovering users end up relapsing just to find relief.

A professional program helps keep people from relapsing by making the process more comfortable, shorter, and safer.

Rehabilitation is concerned with the mental side of addiction, and it comes into play after most of the withdrawals have subsided. By using counseling, group talk sessions, and behavioral therapy, these programs help reverse the subconscious behaviors like compulsive drug use that have kept patients held down by addiction for so long.

There are three main types of rehab programs. 

  • InpatientThis is the most intensive level of care. It requires patients to eat, sleep, and receive treatment all in the same centralized location. And while the treatment here is much more focused, it can be quite disruptive for people who have daily obligations like a job or school.  
  • Outpatient – These programs focus more on flexibility. Patients here are able to live out their daily life as normal and receive treatment in the evenings instead. However, this can lead to a higher risk of relapse since patients aren’t monitored throughout the day.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) – An IOP tries to get the best of both worlds. Treatment occurs in the evenings, but sessions are usually longer and occur more frequently throughout the week.   

While there are a few addiction treatment centers in and around Vancouver, one of the best options for finding a professional program is often to travel for treatment. Doing so can open up the door to facilities with a much higher quality of treatment than those found locally.

Added to that, there are quite a few other benefits of traveling for treatment to consider.

  • It can provide a range of other treatment options including those involving specialized medications.
  • It can solidify your commitment to recovery.
  • It can make it harder to quit a program on a whim, especially when cravings become overwhelming.
  • It can help patients avoid running into people they may know from where they live.
  • It can keep patients 100% focused on their recovery.

In the end, the key to getting the absolute most out of a recovery program is finding a facility that’s right for you – not just one that’s cheapest or nearby.

About the Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers in Vancouver

There are so many people in need of professional addiction treatment in the Vancouver area. But a lot of people have no idea where to begin to find what they are looking for.

The SAMHSA treatment locator tool can be a great resource. It allows people to search for all kinds of professional rehab services in their local area.

Some people do well with AA and NA, but again, they are not right for everyone. Most people really need to take the time to consider how a professional program can help them reach their recovery goals.

There are 10 drug and alcohol rehab programs that are located directly in the City of Vancouver. But there are also additional options that can be found outside the city. There are a total of 44 options to choose from within 10 miles of Vancouver. They are a combination of both inpatient and outpatient programs.

Our Outpatient Rehab Facility in Idaho

At Ashwood Recovery, we have one of the best outpatient treatment programs in the area. We have included three different levels of care because we understand how varied our clients’ need are. They have the option to choose between partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment and traditional outpatient rehab. Of course, we always offer our recommendations, which are based on what our staff feel the client needs.

Our goal is not just to treat our clients’ addictions. We also aim to treat the root cause, which in many cases, means treating co-occurring disorders. This gives our clients a much better chance of being successful long-term.

People who live in Vancouver may be more interested in attending an outpatient program that is closer to home. That is completely understandable. We also have two outpatient facilities that are both located in Washington State.

Northpoint the Evergreen has two locations – one in Bellevue and one in Seattle. They also provide their clients with various levels of care to meet their unique needs.

Finding the Best Inpatient Rehab Program in Washington State

Many people with drug or alcohol addictions really need to begin by going through inpatient rehab first. They may desire an outpatient program, but they need a higher level of care than what they can offer to them. When potential clients contact us and they need inpatient treatment, we always recommend Northpoint Washington.

Northpoint Washington is located in Edmonds. They offer treatment for both drug addiction and alcoholism. They have a 28-day program that includes detox services as well as rehab.

Covering the Costs of Addiction Treatment

Recovering from an addiction does not have to be expensive. Many people refuse to consider going to a professional rehab program because they do not think they can afford it. What they do not realize is that the new healthcare laws require their insurance companies to offer them benefits to help cover the costs.

Every insurance policy is different, so people should check theirs carefully. But many companies offer the best benefits for people who choose outpatient rehab programs. Sometimes those costs are even covered in full.

At Ashwood Recovery, our goal is to make professional treatment affordable. We have partnered with many of the top insurance companies in Idaho, including Blue Cross of Idaho. This is our way of getting the best in drug and alcohol rehab services to as many people as possible.

Our Alcoholism & Drug Addiction Center

We have both outpatient and inpatient treatment facilities to assist you along your recovery path.
