Local Support Groups Near Malad City, Idaho

While willpower and dedication are both qualities that can make getting clean even easier, they certainly aren’t the only factors involved. And in fact, building up a strong social support network is actually far more important for safeguarding long-term sobriety.

Some of the best places to find this essential support are local support groups like AA, NA, and more. And thankfully, Malad City and the surrounding areas have plenty of support groups for residents to choose from.

This guide takes a look at some of the best in the region.

Since its founding in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous has grown to be one of the most popular support groups in the world. And in 2017, membership estimates were as high as 2.1 million active members across the globe.

Part of what makes AA so successful is the accessibility. Meetings are easy to find, completely free, and open to all.

The model of recovery developed by this group – the 12-step approach – is another factor in its widespread success. And in fact, it’s actually endorsed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

As AA continued to help more and more people overcome their alcoholism, many wondered if the 12-step model could also be applied to other types of substance addiction, leading to a number of support group offshoots. Narcotics Anonymous was one of the first.

This group opens its doors to individuals with any kind of substance addiction, from those involving cocaine and meth to prescription pills and even alcohol. And like AA, meetings are highly accessible and open to all.

There are a number of NA meetings nearby to take a look at.

Alcoholics hurt themselves because of their addiction. But they also often cause serious problems for friends and family members as well. And for them, there’s Al-Anon.

This 12-step group is devoted to helping those who are hurt in the wake of another person’s problem drinking. And they offer guidance and support that can give these individuals the healing they need and are so rarely afforded.

There are a number of Al-Anon groups taking place around Malad City, Idaho.

Al-Anon is a great place to get help for those hurt by another person’s drinking. But many young people can have a hard time opening up to the healing that these groups provide.

Alateen focuses on this younger population in particular. Members are required to fall into a specific age range, typically 10 to 20 years old. And that means that members often feel much more comfortable sharing their experiences and learning from those of others.

There are two Alateen meetings in particular in the Malad City region.

Just as AA has Al-Anon, so too does NA have Nar-Anon. This group is devoted to helping friends, and family members of any type of addict get the support they need.

And it’s been a vital source of healing for countless people all over the world.

Unfortunately, there’s only one Nar-Anon meeting within 100 miles of Malad City, Idaho. You can find its information below.

Many young people who grow up in an alcoholic home will go through serious trauma throughout their childhood. And for many of these individuals, this trauma can lead to emotional and functional problems that end up lasting well into adulthood.

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA) helps these individuals move on from their dark past to live happy and healthy lives.

And while meetings aren’t nearly as numerous as other 12-step groups, there is one meeting around Malad City to consider looking into.

Despite the success of the 12-step approach, this is not the only model of recovery available. And SMART Recovery is one of the best 12-step alternatives nearby.

These groups use the latest in scientific addiction research to give members a variety of techniques and strategies they can use to overcome cravings and avoid unexpected triggers that may have otherwise led to relapse.

There are a few SMART Recovery groups happening near Malad City to look at too.

Whether it’s a hectic schedule, a lack of reliable transportation, or even just the pervasive stigmas attached to addiction, there are plenty of reasons why people don’t want to attend in-person groups like those above. But luckily, there are alternatives that still offer support.

Online support groups are some of the most flexible. These groups take place over email, through chatrooms, or even via video teleconferencing. Each group is different. But ultimately, there’s bound to be a perfect group out there.

Below are just a few places to get started looking.

Malad City Resource Profile

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

A reliable means of getting social support is incredibly valuable when it comes to recovery and long-term sobriety. However, the overwhelming majority of addicts will need a much higher level of treatment than these support groups can provide. And that’s where a professional program comes in.

A professional program combines expertise, experience, and a wide variety of treatments to give recovering addicts the absolute best shot at true recovery. And without a professional program, many addicts will end up relapsing back into old bad habits.

There are two main types of programs in particular: detoxification and rehabilitation.

Detoxification – This stage comes first in the recovery process. And it deals primarily with the withdrawal stage – when the body readjusts to functioning without the help of an addictive substance.

Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most physically difficult stages too. That’s because a range of uncomfortable side effects called withdrawals are usually involved when the body cleanses itself of the drug’s influence.    

Some of the most common withdrawals include:

  • Headaches
  • Tremors
  • Paranoia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Withdrawals can be so distressing that many people will end up turning back to substance abuse just to get some kind of relief. And this will usually lead to a full-blown relapse.

A professional detoxification program will help make the withdrawal process far more comfortable by treating these symptoms directly. Plus, they’ll also protect patients against the serious complications that may also pop up along the way, some of which can be deadly without proper treatment.

Rehabilitation – The second phase of recovery, rehabilitation deals more with the mental side of addiction recovery. It uses a variety of treatments (e.g., one-on-one counseling, group talk sessions, behavioral therapy) to reverse the compulsive drug-seeking and self-destructive behaviors that plague many addicts.  

There are three main types of rehab programs too.

  • Inpatient Rehab – These programs offer the highest level of treatment. They’re typically about 30 days long and require patients to eat, sleep, and receive treatment on the program grounds. And while that can help protect against relapse, it can also make it hard to fulfill daily obligations like work, school, or even family events.
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation – Longer and more flexible, outpatient programs consist of evening/weekend treatment sessions for about 3 months. And while this schedule provides more freedom, it can also lead to a higher risk of relapse.  
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) – A step up from typical outpatient, IOPs have evening and weekend treatment sessions as well. However, they tend to be longer and occur more frequently throughout the week.   

Unfortunately, the closest addiction treatment facility is about an hour drive away. But as discouraging as that might sound, the fact is that making the choice to travel outside of Malad City can in fact lead to a smoother recovery experience.

This is because choosing to travel can open up the door to a much more varied list of program options. And that means that facilities that are more experienced and offer higher success rates become available. This, of course, translates to a better shot at both getting clean and staying clean.

There are a few other benefits to travelling for treatment to consider. Below are some of the best.  

  • More advanced facilities and greater expertise in treating your specific type of addiction.
  • Better amenities to make recovery far more comfortable.
  • A new environment to help make it easier to adopt new life strategies.
  • More privacy and confidentiality.
  • A program that, due to its location, can make it less likely you’ll quit the program just because of a bad day.
  • A more solidified commitment to recovery.
