AA, NA, and Al-Anon Meetings in Kuna, ID

Every 39 hours, an Idaho citizen dies of a drug overdose. It’s time that our friends, neighbors, and family members get the addiction support they need.

Over the past few decades, Idaho’s addiction problem has grown worse. Heroin, oxycodone, fentanyl, methamphetamine, and even alcohol cause more and more deaths each year.

In 2016, several hundred Idaho citizens died from a drug overdose. Almost a thousand died in drunk driving accidents. Across the state, diseases caused by drug and alcohol use reek havoc on Idaho residents, killing dozens each week.

It’s become obvious that we need to do something. In order to prevent our friends and family members from falling prey to the risks of addiction, we must find them help before it’s too late.

Luckily, there are addiction resources in Kuna that offer assistance…

There are strong AA and NA communities in Idaho that aim to help addicts get clean. Unfortunately, however, many addicts don’t reach out for help when they need it.

It’s our goal to connect addicts with the resources that can help them overcome their habit. We’ve compiled this list of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings near Kuna with the hope that it might help addicts find support.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and live in Idaho, one or more of these meetings may be able to help you.

Alcoholics Anonymous: Battling Alcoholism in Kuna

Alcoholism is an enormous problem in the Gem State. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 15% of Idaho residents show signs of alcohol use disorder

But, the state’s citizens aren’t getting the treatment they need to get sober. This is made clear by the fact that drunk drivers cause nearly 2,000 accidents every year. Nearly 10,000 Idaho residents are arrested for driving under the influence annually. 

And car accidents aren’t the only effect of alcoholism. Long-term alcohol addiction is known to cause illnesses like liver diseasehepatitispancreatic cancer, and other serious conditions. On a statewide level, alcohol-related diseases take hundreds of lives every year. 

But, AA works hard to cut these numbers down. 

Alcoholics Anonymous is an organization that offers support and guidance to alcoholics who want it. Each week, recovering alcoholics gather in rooms all across America to discuss how their addiction has impacted their lives. These addicts share stories, talk about their experience, and discuss the progress of their recovery. 

Many people find that AA is a life-changing experience

“We in AA concentrate on helping those who are already alcoholics, those who may have a desire to stop drinking so that they can begin to recover and learn how to live a normal, happy life without alcohol.” - Alcoholics Anonymous, AA Manifesto 

Ada County has a particularly vibrant AA community. The meetings in Kuna attract alcoholics from all over the region who want to connect with other people who’ve lived through a similar experience. In an average meeting, people who have been sober for two days gather with people who’ve been sober for twenty years to discuss the in’s and out’s of alcohol addiction.

Narcotics Anonymous: Working Hard to Fight Drug Addiction in Kuna

Like alcoholism, drug addiction is an enormous issue in Idaho. Each year, hundreds of residents fall prey to the dangers of drugs. 

In a recent survey conducted by the federal government, nearly 10% of Idaho residents admitted to using illegal drugs during the month prior. This percentage is above the national average of 8.8%. 

Even scarier, almost 5% of Idaho teenagers (ages 12-17), admitted to having a drug abuse problem. This number only includes those who defined themselves as drug addicts. It also only includes those who had not yet sought treatment at the time of the survey. 

These numbers are particularly frightening, considering the high volume of overdose deaths that occur in Idaho. On average, a fatal drug overdose kills a local resident every other day. 

Fortunately, help is available… 

Narcotics Anonymous has a strong presence in the Kuna region. Every day, drug addicts from all over the area come together to assist each other through the recovery process. Much like Alcoholics Anonymous, NA aims to help addicts get sober and stay clean. 

“We can do together what we could not do alone.” - NA, Welcome to Narcotics Anonymous 

NA welcomes people who are addicted to any drug. In a typical meeting, it’s common for meth addicts, opioid addicts, cocaine addicts, and even marijuana addicts to come together to offer each other support. The organization does not place an emphasis on any one drug. Everyone is invited, as long as they have a desire to overcome their addiction and move forward toward a happier, healthier life.

SMART Recovery Meetings: An Alternative to the 12 Steps

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are both 12-Step Programs. They use a rigid system to help addicts get sober and fight off the urge to relapse. 

While AA and NA both work for many addicts, some people are turned off by the 12 Steps for a number of different reasons. Some people believe that these organizations are religious (because they ask addicts to find a “higher power”) and don’t want to participate in a secular program. Others have tried working the 12 Steps but found that it didn’t work for them.

That’s okay. There are plenty of ways to get sober. 

One great alternative is SMART Recovery, a program designed as an alternative to AA and NA. Unlike the 12 Steps, SMART Recovery takes a more scientific approach to sobriety. There isn’t much spiritual talk taking place at these meetings, which makes them more comfortable for some addicts. 

Both SMART Recovery and the 12 Steps are effective resources. Ultimately, addicts should attend whichever program works better for them. The important part is getting clean. 

Want to find a SMART meeting near you? We’ve found a couple close by that could be helpful. 

Please note: Northpoint Recovery is not affiliated with any of these meetings. Therefore, we can’t recommend any one meeting over another.

Al-Anon: Recovery Support for Idaho Families

Drug addiction and alcoholism can take a toll on the lives of people other than just the addict. Their family members and friends often suffer, too. 

When you love an addict, their condition has a way of taking over your entire life, even if you’re not using drugs yourself. You feel fear, anxiety, stress, and sadness. You just want your loved one to be okay. 

Unfortunately, there’s not too much we can do to make our loved ones get sober. Unless they want to change, we can’t help them get better. 

“The worst thing is watching someone drown and not being able to convince them that they can save themselves just by standing up.” - Al-Anon 

But, we can still take care of ourselves. We can reach out for support and speak to others who are going through the same thing. We can work toward being the best possible people and learn to manage the stress of loving an addict. 

Al-Anon was designed for this very purpose. It’s a safe place where people who love addicts can go and learn to cope with their pain. The group is open to the children, parents, spouses, siblings, friends, and family members of addicts. It’s a great resource for any Idaho resident who needs support during this troubling time.
