Caldwell Idaho Drug and Alcohol Resources

Why is it necessary to have NA or AA meetings in Caldwell or anywhere else? Addiction is not something you and your family can manage alone. Caldwell, Idaho is located in “Treasure Valley” which is surrounded by rich agricultural space. It is a friendly town that is well acclaimed for its low crime rate and family-friendly environment. However, there is a dark underbelly to Caldwell as the city hasn’t escaped addiction problems.

Caldwell, Idaho is a suburb of Boise. Its small population of only about 45,000. Every year, 10 people die from alcohol abuse, while between 10 and 20 die from drug overdose in Caldwell. Hundreds experience life-altering challenges due to their drug and alcohol abuse. The city experiences an annual DUI rate between 100 and 300. Over 30% of the city's teens have used marijuana at least once in the last year, and between five and ten percent abuse prescription and illicit drugs.

In fact, the use of illicit and prescription drugs is so prevalent in the U.S. that in 2012, drug overdose caused more accidental deaths than motor vehicle accidents for people 25 to 64 years old. (Source: Centers for Disease Control). The problem is costing $400 billion annually.

Al-Anon and Alateen are there for family members, including children and teenagers, affected by a loved one's drinking or drug abuse. Here, you will find the space to be warm, and welcoming. The meetings are free and self-supporting. Al-Anon and

Alateen provides guidance with boundary setting and self-care while living with a person who is recovering from or still living with addiction. It is based on the 12 steps.

Online Support Groups

As there isn’t as much addiction support in Caldwell as you might get in a larger city, there are online groups you can take part in. Online support groups provide a convenient alternative to addiction support, and there are several types of groups available to meet your needs.

Narcotics Anonymous

There are Internet-based groups of Narcotics Anonymous with two daily online meetings where addicts seeking recovery can chat 24/7 for support and fellowship.

The meetings are text/chat based and group members participate by typing their shares. You do not need a webcam or a microphone, simply log into the chatroom when it's time for the meeting.

Just pick a nickname and click "Start" to instantly join the room and begin talking to other recovering addicts who are here to share their experience, strength, and hope with each other!

You can listen or share whatever you feel comfortable sharing.

12 Step Groups

Dual Recovery Anonymous™ is an independent, nonprofessional, Twelve Step, self-help membership organization for people with a dual diagnosis. Our goal is to help men and women who experience a dual illness. We are chemically dependent and we are also affected by an emotional or psychiatric illness. Both illnesses affect us in all areas of our lives; physically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually.

SMART Recovery for self-managed recovery training. There are online tools that help people help themselves when going through recovery from addiction.

Al Anon

Al-Anon electronic meetings use different online platforms: discussion boards, email, chat, phone and Voice over Internet Provider (VoIP), such as Skype.  Each meeting is autonomous in its style, format, and entry procedures. They are conducted in the spirit of the Twelve Traditions.

Meetings that don’t list a specific meeting time are held around the clock.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Members that attend AA meetings in or around Caldwell will often supplement these meetings by doing some virtual meetings as well. This might be because it’s more convenient at times or someone just wants to attend meetings more often. It is believed that the bond of the fellowship has a greater strength when there’s more people to support each other. The internet has a grander geographical reach and for some, it is more anonymous.

Online meetings are available in many different formats. There is real-time chat, email meetings, audio visual meetings with the use of Skype, and telephone chats. Specific groups are also targeted so minorities can feel comfortable in specific groups where people have a greater understanding of one another. There are regular schedule or ‘catch as catch can’ formats. Members can post whenever they want. It is an excellent way to supplement face-to-face meetings but it shouldn’t substitute them.

Face-to-face meetings in your community are important. They allow people to hug one another and when things get difficult, they have to physically walk out. Online, it is easier to leave a group chat if you feel upset. Running away from your realities isn’t a healthy way to go about things when you’re coping with addiction. It’s important that you have physical support.

What to Do in Case of Drug Overdose or Alcohol Poisoning in Caldwell

There are over 85% of Americans who have drank at one point during their life. When someone drinks too much or too quickly, the ethanol can poison the body. Many people drink because it relaxes them and is often part of a social scene. There are health problems that can arise from drinking excessively in one session. If someone has alcohol poisoning in Caldwell, they won’t be able to help themselves so it’s up to you to know the signs.

The symptoms of alcohol poisoning include:

  • They may complain of stomach pain.
  • They may have a hard time breathing.
  • They may begin to have seizures.
  • They may complain of chest pain.
  • They may vomit without being conscious.
  • Their coordination deteriorates.
  • They don’t respond when you shake them or try to talk them despite the fact they are conscious.

If you see this happening to someone you know, you should call 911. They will likely ask you what the state of the person is. Do your best to remain calm so you can be as helpful as possible. Here are some of the questions you will likely have to answer:

Are they conscious?

Are they breathing?

Are they lying on their back? If they are, you’ll likely be told to prop them on their side in case they vomit while passed out.

Drug overdoses are more challenging to manage because they can range from opioids to cocaine to benzodiazepines. If you don’t know what drug has been taken, it’s harder to determine what is happening to the person. If someone has taken cocaine, his or her heart can stop. If someone has taken too much heroin, his or her heart may become slower and slower. It can eventually stop. You may need to look for clues like paraphernalia or prescription medication bottles.

Regardless, you should get medical help immediately if you see these signs:

  • Severe stomach pain.
  • Challenges breathing (depending on what kind of drug it was)
  • Convulsing or vomiting.
  • Paranoia.
  • Bluish fingernails or lips.
  • Clammy face.
  • Agitation.
  • Unresponsive.
  • Loss of coordination.
  • Body is limp.
  • Pulse is erratic.
  • They aren’t responding to you but they are awake.

Being able to note some of these symptoms to an emergency attendant may save their life.

Opioids have run rampant throughout rural areas of the U.S. This has a lot to do with the fact that they’re often underserviced areas. So when someone gets hurt, they would be given opioid prescription medications to ease their pain. They are effective for this purpose but it doesn’t take long before patients experience psychological and physical dependency.

Then the government pulled the plug on how available opioid drugs should be. You then have these average people that never even realized they were addicted in Caldwell. They weren’t able to get prescriptions renewed so they turned to the street. They would either buy those prescription drugs for a higher price on the street, or purchase stronger illicit opioids.

It’s also important that you know the signs of an opioid overdose. The person who has overdosed will experience a decrease in their heart rate. They may try to talk but you can’t understand what they’re saying or it doesn’t make sense. They may seem confused themselves. If this occurs and then they pass out, you should call for emergency medical assistance in Caldwell immediately. They could fall into a coma quickly at this point and their heart may stop completely.

When someone starts taking street opioids, they are at a higher risk of death from overdose. Fentanyl has instantly killed many users. Naloxone is a part of every first aid kit that would involve an attendant being in contact with people using opioids. This is a drug that can reverse the effects of opioids and has saved countless lives. It’s recommended that if someone in your life is abusing opioids that you carry Naloxone.

In the effort to fight overdose deaths in Caldwell, the Nampa Police Department received $6,300 from the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program. They used it to purchase Narcan which is the brand name of Naloxone that is saving countless lives all over the country. It’s a nasal inhaler so anyone can use it and it reverses the effects of a heroin overdose. There is a major problem in Caldwell and surrounding areas for heroin use and forensic scientists have found traces of fentanyl when analyzing heroin.

If you suspect it’s an opioid overdose and you administer the Naloxone, you’ll still need to call an ambulance or go to the emergency room right away. This is because the Naloxone doesn’t last as long as the drugs in the system. As soon as it wears off, it can cause the body to experience all the dangerous overdose symptoms.

Some of the symptoms include:

  • No response when you shake them or shout their name.
  • Their lips, nails, or skin may go blue.
  • Their pulse and breathing is slow.

You can take them to the emergency room on your own. This might be the fastest way to get them medical help. Here are some of the nearby hospitals for overdose in Caldwell:

West Valley Medical Center
1717 Arlington Ave
Caldwell, ID
83605

The West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. They have extensively trained staff and board-certified ER physicians. Nurses will treat health emergencies like alcohol poisoning or drug overdoses quickly.

St. Lukes Nampa Emergency Department
9850 W. St. Luke’s Drive
Nampa, ID 83687
(208) 505-2000

Nampa might be close enough that you’ll be sent to their emergency room. These are the insurance companies they accept. If you are covered, you can expect expert emergency care for an overdose situation. The emergency department was built in 2012 and designed to offer all the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Their staff is available 24/7 with board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nurses. There are private treatment rooms, isolation rooms, and critical care rooms.

Professional Help for Substance Addiction in Caldwell

Cost of Addiction Rehab in Caldwell

There are free services for alcohol and drug addiction in Caldwell but if you have the opportunity to get into a private facility, this is your best chance at recovery. Public health services are extremely helpful for those that have hit rock bottom and have nothing. If you are able to pay for luxury rehab, you’re never going to have to wait to be admitted. Sadly, this is not the case if you are trying to utilize a non-profit service. If you’re paying out of pocket, it’s worth every penny but drug abuse rehab can be quite expensive. Luckily, health insurance companies cover drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

What this means is detox,  IOP (intensive outpatient), and aftercare is covered. There is a difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment. Depending on what type of health insurance you have, you often won’t have to pay a single dollar out of pocket to receive the help you need. In the event that your insurance doesn't cover the full cost of alcoholism treatment, most rehabs offer payment plans or even scholarships for patients who show improvements and put in their best effort. If you are not sure whether your plan covers rehab in Caldwell, ID, call our hotline to speak to an addiction specialist. Our specialists can run your insurance policy to help you understand exactly what your insurance plan covers.

Benefits of Drug and Alcohol Addiction Rehab

The culture of drug and alcohol abuse in Caldwell, Idaho can make remaining sober on your own a challenging task. Drug and alcohol rehab is one of the fastest ways to get and stay sober in a supportive environment that works to tackle the root causes of your difficulties. Drug rehab removes you from an unhealthy environment and places you with people who are committed to your sobriety and well-being. There are a variety of drug and alcohol rehab options in Caldwell, Idaho, ranging from local treatment centers that allow you to continue living your life, to far-flung options that remove you from a toxic environment and offer a change of pace.

There's no better time than right now to call for help finding treatment in Caldwell, ID. Alcohol abuse problems tend to get worse over time, and in the end stages of alcohol addiction, the disease can become life threatening. The brain adapts to having alcohol in the system and can cause deadly side effects if you attempt to withdraw on your own. Recovering addicts can suffer from:

  • Physical Withdrawal
  • Mood swings
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Difficulty completing daily tasks
  • Delirium tremens

Rehab can help minimize some of these symptoms while giving you the support you need to maintain your sobriety for the long haul.

Why Substance Abuse Treatment is Important

Drug addiction kills. Drug abuse was the leading cause of accidental death in 2011, and substance abuse kills more people – directly, through overdoses, and indirectly, through organ damage and other disorders – than any other cause. Seeking drug rehab in Caldwell is the best way to protect your health, avoid the tragedy of an accidental overdose, and begin reversing the psychological and physical damage of abusing drugs. One phone call really can change your life.

Addicts need help navigating a variety of addictions. Even a popular and common drug such as marijuana can become addictive. Marijuana leads to psychological withdrawal and many addicts use it to mask conditions such as ADHD and depression. Consequently, weaning yourself off marijuana may mean you experience serious mental health symptoms.

Some addicts even opt to attend outpatient facilities that enable them to continue working and meeting daily responsibilities. More frequently, rehab is a form of inpatient treatment, which means you'll live at the facility – typically for 30 to 45 days, but sometimes for longer or shorter periods. While in rehab, you'll get assistance with a number of challenges, including:

  • Understanding the psychological, environmental, or family difficulties that led to your addiction.
  • Education about the disease of addiction, and information on strategies for preventing relapse and avoiding developing another addiction.
  • Help managing the symptoms of detox and withdrawal.
  • Medical assistance if your addiction has led to medical issues, including psychological challenges.
  • Therapy designed to help you better understand yourself and your addiction.
  • Group meetings designed to help you gain support from other recovering addicts and talk about your daily struggles.
  • Developing life skills and working with your family. Many rehab facilities offer family counseling and education to family members so that you can repair broken relationships and help your family understand the disease of addiction. Some also offer job training, resume development, and career counseling.

Rehab extends a sheltered environment free of drugs and alcohol, minimizing your temptation to use. Rehab in Caldwell, Idaho is a voluntary process which means you can leave any time. However, you won't be cleared to leave until you've made enough progress in your sobriety journey that it's possible for you to live independently.

Some people may find that going out of state to receive addiction treatment is necessary. One of the major reasons for doing so is to remove yourself completely from your environment. The space away from you home town can allow you to truly focus on healing. When the landscape changes, it can help you to think more clearly or perhaps differently. Here are some of the benefits of doing out-of-state rehab.

  • You can start over and have a greater chance to recover.
  • You’re may have an easier time finishing the program successfully because you’re not close to home.
  • Knowing you are far away from home can make you feel more relaxed which is an important aspect to recovery.
  • You can disassociate from emotional and physical triggers and the root of your addiction. This is dealt with in talk therapy in a healthy way that doesn’t make you feel compelled to use.
