A lot of people think that addiction is a choice. A lot of people think it's a matter of will. That has not been my experience. I don't find it to have anything to do with strength.

Free Alcohol and Addiction Resources Near Rathdrum, ID

Some of the most widely-used addiction resources don’t cost the recovering addict or alcoholic a cent. Most of these resources are 12-step programs that guide those recovering through a healing process along with others who are in the same boat. These groups can be especially helpful for those who want accountability form others who understand just how hard recovery and sobriety can be.

Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, is one such long-standing 12-step program through which many former alcoholics find help. There are AA meetings all over the world, and several in and around Rathdrum.

AA works by the 12-step model and by the use of sponsors. Sponsors are those who are further along in the recovery process. These individuals guide newer members who, once they are more stable and further alone, may becomes sponsors themselves. These sponsors can hold these newer members accountable and guide them through the 12 steps that they themselves have already completed.

The 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

There are no groups that meet directly in Rathdrum, but there are many that meet nearby. If you think AA could help you, consider attending any of these regularly-scheduled meetings. With so many options, you’re sure to find one that fits your schedule and needs.

Sometimes, those who love addicts and alcoholics suffer just as much as the addicts and alcoholics themselves. Spouses, friends, siblings, parents, and children alike can suffer from the behavior of those they love or live with.

With this in mind, there are support groups designed with this population in mind. Al Anon is for all loved ones of addicts or alcoholics. Alateen is designed for kids and teenagers in this position. Alateen works to teach kids what addiction is, reassure them that someone else’s addiction isn’t their fault, and teach them coping mechanisms to help them break the generational cycles that would often lead to them becoming addicts or alcoholics as well.

Al Anon meetings in and around Rathdrum include:

Inpatient and Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs

For some people, the best way to recover from alcoholism or any other addiction is an addiction treatment program - rehab.

Rehab is a more focused recovery method than an independent 12-step program. Additionally, the recovering addict has access to trained professionals who can help them stay focused, hold them accountable, and make use of all of the most recent research and therapy to work towards a successful recovery.

Like addictions, though, no two recovery options are quite the same. Every recovering addict has to find the process that fits them best. Even amongst rehab programs, there are a million different options for patients to choose from. The first of these decisions is whether the patient wants to take part in outpatient or inpatient rehab.

Outpatient rehab is the option that allows for more independence. In outpatient treatment, the patient continues to live on their own but attends regular therapy or other activities or meetings within the facility.

Outpatient treatment can look markedly different depending on the program, and can range from very lax to a very intensive program where a patient attends daily for several hours.

However, outpatient treatment isn’t for everyone. Before deciding whether or not outpatient treatment is for you, consider the pros and cons:

The pros of outpatient treatment include:

  • Time. It is possible for someone to go through outpatient rehab and continue to attend work or school and otherwise continue their normal life. This can be a big perk for those who need to continue making money or working towards a degree.
  • Money. Outpatient rehab is usually cheaper than inpatient rehab because the patient is paying only for treatment.
  • Support System. For those with supportive friends and families, outpatient treatment can be a good option because they can continue to be around their loved ones while they recover from their addiction.

The potential cons to outpatient treatment include:

  • Unsupervised Time. Any time spent away from the treatment facility is time where a thought about the patient’s drug of choice could lead to seeking out or using that drug. Outpatient treatment means that the patient has a lot of unsupervised time that could easily turn into a relapse to addiction or abuse.
  • Unenforced Appointments. Those in outpatient rehab are left on their own to make sure they get to appointments on time and cope with cravings in a healthy and positive way. Often, addiction can damage our willpower. Even the strongest-willed addict has the potential to relapse when left unattended or experiencing withdrawal symptoms after missing an appointment. And plenty of things can go wrong for an appointment to be missed, leaving the patient vulnerable to such situations.

Keep reading to learn more about inpatient treatment and decide which is best for your recovery process.

Inpatient treatment programs are probably what you think of when you think of “going to rehab.” In inpatient rehab, a recovering addict lives in a treatment facility for the duration of their recovery.

Inpatient recovery has been shown to be the more effective form of addiction treatment program. This means that of those who complete a full addiction recovery program, those who completed an inpatient program are least likely to relapse to alcohol or their drug of choice.

That said, inpatient treatment really is the ticket for some. But again, no two addiction recovery journeys are the same. Consider the pros and cons of inpatient treatment before making a decision.

The pros of inpatient treatment are:

  • Constant supervision. This decreases the risk of medical emergencies during withdrawal and lowers the likelihood of a relapse.
  • Structure. Most inpatient rehab facilities provide their patients with a full schedule of activities. This means that patients have less time to seek out or think about the substance they were abusing or addicted to. This also means that patients are learning how to fill their time without using the drug.
  • Time away. Often, those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol recover best by taking time away from their normal, day-to-day life. Inpatient rehab allows the patient to focus on themself and not be influenced by their friends, family, or environment.
  • Support. Inpatient rehab facilities offer constant, around-the-clock support for those going through withdrawals or cravings. This decreases the chance of a relapse because someone is always there to encourage (and enforce) sobriety.

The drawbacks to inpatient addiction treatment are:

  • Time. Those staying at an inpatient rehab facility while they recover must have the time to take off of work, school or other commitments. They are usually not allowed to leave the treatment facility during their stay.
  • Removal from Support System. For many people, being away from their loved ones during treatment can be difficult. In inpatient facilities, patients have limited, supervised contact with anyone outside the facility in the hopes of cutting off all contact with anyone who would encourage the patient to relapse. This can be hard for those who enjoy close relationships with those people.
  • Money. Because inpatient treatment is all-inclusive, it is usually the most expensive treatment option for those recovering from drug addiction, drug abuse, or alcoholism.

“Initially, I was extremely anxious and scared to go to a rehab facility but Northpoint Recovery was the most unreal experience and I don’t regret going at all. The care I received saved my life. . . I would highly recommend Northpoint to anyone that is considering treatment. I can honestly say I would not be here if it wasn’t for them and their amazing staff and program!”

~ Jonah Carleton

“I recently departed NPR on 9/7, because my ins company refused to pay anymore. While that's the last thing anyone ever wanted to hear the staff and my peers were very supportive.

When you recover at NPR it's not just a place to recover, you become a family member of NPR. My peers knew at my coin out that I was not ready to leave and they all stepped up my first weekend home, by blowing up my phone just to make sure I was okay.

The staff is ridiculous [sic] nice, you can tell they truly do love their job and care about you.

The counselors like to get down to the grit and find out exactly why you started using and how to cope with those situation.

The facility does keep you pretty busy with everything from the gym and yoga 3 times each weekly to meeting's and educational groups daily.

I am glad my dr recommended this place. And I would 100% recommend this place to anyone in the future.”

~ Richard Bajnoczy

“Northpoint was the best decision I ever made. The entire staff is kind, caring, and compassionate. The groups really helped me understand addiction and gave me valuable skills to apply to life. I am very grateful I had the opportunity to spend time there.”

~ Victoria Champagne
