Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is an organization that started out very small in Ohio. It was founded by two men who were both alcoholics. These men saw a need for a support group for people who wanted to recover. Once that idea was brought to fruition, the organization just took off.

AA bases their teachings on the 12 Steps of Recovery. They believe that people need each other in order to stop drinking successfully. Generally, each group meets once per week, and anyone can attend an open meeting. Closed meetings are only for those who are alcoholics.

This support group has meant so much to so may people. There are millions all around the world who have been in need of their services, and benefited from them.

There are several Meridian AA meetings, and they are taking place every day of the week. You can find them at the following locations and times.

Meridian, ID Addiction Recovery and Mental Health Resources

Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous is an organization that was founded in 1953; almost twenty years after AA got its start. Jimmy Kinnon was the founder, and their headquarters is in California.

NA is built upon the same premises as AA, but it was started because people with drug addictions needed something similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. They wanted a support group for people with other types of substance abuse. The result has been an amazing journey of helping people heal.

Just like AA, there are no fees required for participation. NA focuses on the 12 Steps of recovery as well, but with a few adjustments. They also allow anyone who is an alcoholic to join in on their meetings. This is a wonderful benefit for those who do not like AA meetings.

You can find many Meridian NA meetings. They are located all throughout the city and in the surrounding areas.

What is Al-Anon?

Al-Anon is an organization that was designed to meet the needs of the family members of addicts. They work with people all over the country, and they hold meetings in many cities across the U.S.

When someone has an addiction, people often do not stop to think about the suffering the family may be going through. It is often left to them to pick up the pieces when a loved one is an alcoholic or addict. It can be hard to cope in that situation.

Al-Anon gives families a place to talk about their struggles. It is such an important group of people and they have helped so many individuals and families heal.

There are several Al-Anon meetings in Meridian as well as in the surrounding cities. You can find them by checking the following list.

What is Alateen?

Alateen meetings are ways for young people to come together and talk about the struggles they are facing. These meetings are strictly for teenagers, young adults and sometimes young children.

There are many Alateen meetings that can be found online. Chat meetings are a great way for young people to talk with each other and share their experiences. They can find support and encouragement through Alateen online.

Also, please keep in mind that anyone of any age can attend an Al-Anon meeting, unless otherwise specified. Your teenagers can still get support and help through in-person meetings.

What is SMART?

It is not uncommon in this day and age for faith to not be a substantial part of each person’s life. With the leaps that have been made in all parts of science and industry in the past century, many have grown to rely on science to help and guide them through most parts of their lives. This has extended to the drug and alcohol rehab arena, and an answer has recently come in the form of the SMART program.

SMART, which stands for Self-Management and Recovery Training, is a rehab program that has taken the advancements in the scientific field of addiction recovery and turned them into a program designed to help with virtually any type of addiction. Rather than than the 12-step rehab programs offered by faith-based organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, SMART provides a smaller 4-step program. This drug and alcohol rehab program is designed to provide the necessary tools and information to beat the different cravings or desires that come from many types of addictive behavior.

While there are no SMART meetings located in Meridian, there are two that can be found within reasonable driving distance. Meridian residents unable to travel to an in-person meeting, can find many helpful resources online.

Are You Addicted? Take a Quiz

Take one of our addiction quizzes to find out if you or someone you care about needs help today.

What if You are Not Ready to Attend a Support Group?

Not everyone is ready to jump right into a support group when they want to quit using. In fact, for some people, even the thought of sharing their problems with strangers makes them nervous.

If that is how you feel, please know that there is nothing wrong with that. There are other options available to you as well.

Should Loved Ones be Concerned that a Drug Addict or Alcoholic Might Overdose?

If you have a family member or friend who is using drugs or abusing alcohol, you have every right to be concerned. It is possible that they could suffer from either an overdose, or alcohol poisoning.

Typically, overdoses most often happen when someone is using for the first time and they use too much, or when they have relapsed. Either situation should be considered an emergency. It is important to know how to recognize the signs of both alcohol poisoning and overdose.

People who have drank too much tend to display the following signs of alcohol poisoning:

  • They appear very confused.
  • They have excessive vomiting.
  • They begin having seizures.
  • The have slower breathing patterns
  • They have irregular breathing.
  • Their skin turns blue or pale.
  • They have a lower body temperature than normal.
  • They pass out and it is impossible to wake them up.

Someone who has overdosed on drugs may display varying symptoms, depending on the drug they were using. Typically, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • They have high blood pressure.
  • Their pulse rate is extremely high.
  • They either breathe too fast or to slow.
  • They have either a high or low body temperature.
  • They feel very sleepy.
  • They feel confused.
  • They may fall into a coma.
  • Their skin is cool and sweaty or hot and dry.
  • They complain of chest pain.
  • They complain of an upset stomach or stomach pain.
  • They have nausea and vomiting.

If you believe that a loved one has overdosed on drugs, or has alcohol poisoning, you must act quickly. Do not attempt to take them to the hospital yourself. Call 911 immediately and explain your concerns. If you can, tell the person on the phone the type of drug you believe the person overdosed on.

After you call 911, stay by their side at all times. Try to talk with them and keep them from passing out. Remain at the scene until emergency help arrives in case you need to answer any questions.

How Can Drug or Alcohol Treatment Help You Recover?

It is possible that you might need more intensive treatment for your addiction. If that is the case, you would benefit from going to a drug or alcohol rehab.

Not everyone can recover through outpatient treatment and support groups alone. While these forms of care are good, when you are trying to quit using, they are usually not enough. You will get a lot of help when you choose to go to an inpatient program.

Drug Rehab in Meridian, ID

There are nine inpatient and outpatient drug rehab centers located in the city of Meridian.

Alcohol and Drug Detox in Meridian

Aside from completing a rehab program, one of the most important steps on the road to recovery is drug and alcohol detox. This is actually the first step, one taken before the lessons and tools learned in alcohol or drug rehab can fully take effect. This holds true for both alcoholism and drug addiction, since most times the substances can have harmful side effects if you attempt to dry out on your own. It is always wise to have a professional on hand in case the going gets rough.

When it comes to answering the question of whether or not you need to go through drug or alcohol detox when getting help for your addiction, the answer is almost always a resounding yes. Some milder addictions may be able to bypass this part of the process, especially if the drug or alcohol of choice is not used very regularly. However, for most addictions, detox is an unavoidable step you need to take.

There are several reasons that detox is such an important part of the addiction recovery process. The first is simply that when your body adjusts to not having drugs or alcohol, it can be very frightening, uncomfortable and confusing. Your body is craving something so intensely, it can be difficult to even function with everyday tasks. In an alcohol or drug detox program, most mundane tasks are handled for you, so you can concentrate on dealing with the ordeal without too much difficulty.

It also helps having professionals around who can step in if the going gets too tough. In those moments where you feel like all hope is lost, it is extremely beneficial to have someone there to talk you through it. Given the restrictive nature of drug and alcohol detox programs, it will also keep you from getting your substance of choice just to make the suffering stop.

In many situations, both with drug and alcohol addiction, the physical and emotional pain and anguish can become so intense that additional medications may need to be prescribed to help ease the pain. In some situations, these are absolutely necessary, since the withdrawal from certain substances can actually kill you. A good detox program understands when this is necessary, and can help your addiction recovery immensely by administering the correct medications

There is one facility located directly in Meridian that offers inpatient detox services. There is, however, another avenue to try in the form of major hospitals in Meridian, that can help with detox especially during the most difficult times. There are five major hospitals located directly in Meridian, so urgent care for someone detoxing is always within reach.

Health Insurance

One thing that virtually all alcohol and drug detox and rehab centers have in common is that they can be pricey if paid for out of pocket. This makes it of special importance that the facility you select takes your personal health insurance to cover the costs. Without health insurance, many people who need help are unable to get it.
