Weiser, Idaho Addiction Resources: Recovery Is Closer Than You Think

If you’re addicted in Weiser, it’s never been more vital than it is today to know where to find addiction resources to help you recover.

In fact, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, drug-induced deaths have risen by a whopping 6% from 2015 to 2016 alone.

That’s why it’s so important to know not only what to do in case of a drug or alcohol overdose, but also where to go for help in recovering from addiction in general. This guide will show you exactly where to start with each in Weiser, Idaho.

You don’t have to end up as just another statistic. And the resources provided below can help.

What Should You Do In Case of an Overdose?

Without a doubt, one of the most dangerous outcomes of addiction is an overdose. And no matter what kind of substance you abuse – whether it's alcohol, heroin, cocaine, or even prescription medications – taking too much of it can have potentially fatal consequences.

But what can you do if someone is overdosing? How do you recognize the signs? And most importantly of all, how can you help?

Let’s take a closer look at this terrifying risk of substance abuse and addiction.

The very first step of treating an overdose is spotting the initial symptoms. While you may think that doing so is simple, the truth is that many people wait far too long before contacting life-saving medical help.

And when it comes to health risks as dangerous as an overdose every second counts. The quicker you identify it then, the better their chances will be of avoiding permanent damage.

Have a look at the symptoms of overdosing on some of the most commonly abused drugs below.

Alcohol – According to the Mayo Clinic, signs of alcohol poisoning include:

  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Slow breathing (less than eight breaths a minute)
  • Irregular breathing (a gap of more than 10 seconds between breaths)
  • Blue-tinged skin or pale skin
  • Low body temperature (hypothermia)
  • Passing out (unconsciousness) and can’t be awakened

HeroinMedlinePlus’s symptoms of a heroin overdose include:

  • AIRWAYS AND LUNGS
    • No breathing
    • Shallow breathing
    • Slow and difficult breathing
  • EYES, EARS, NOSE AND THROAT
    • Dry mouth
    • Extremely small pupils, sometimes as small as the head of a pin (pinpoint pupils)
    • Discolored tongue
  • HEART AND BLOOD
    • Low blood pressure
    • Weak pulse
    • SKIN
    • Bluish-colored nails and lips
  • STOMACH AND INTESTINES
    • Constipation
    • Spasms of the stomach and intestines
  • NERVOUS SYSTEM
    • Coma
    • Delirium
    • Disorientation
    • Drowsiness
    • Uncontrolled muscle movements

Cocaine – Signs of a cocaine overdose according to MedlinePlus include:

  • Seizures
  • Loss of awareness of surroundings
  • Loss of urine control
  • High body temperature, severe sweating
  • High blood pressure, very fast heart rate or irregular heart rhythm
  • Bluish color of the skin
  • Fast or difficulty breathing
  • Death

Methamphetamine (Crystal Meth)MedlinePlus lists the symptoms of a meth overdose as:

  • Agitation
  • Chest pain
  • Coma or unresponsiveness (in extreme cases)
  • Heart attack
  • Irregular or stopped heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Very high body temperature
  • Kidney damage and possibly kidney failure
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Stroke

Prescription Painkillers – According to SAMHSA, signs of a prescription opioid overdose include:

  • Their face is extremely pale and/or feels clammy to the touch
  • Their body goes limp
  • Their fingernails or lips have a purple or blue color
  • They start vomiting or making gurgling noises
  • They cannot be awakened or are unable to speak
  • Their breathing or heartbeat slows or stops

If you recognize the signs of a drug overdose, the very first step should be to call 9-1-1. After contacting these medical professionals, you’ll likely be given instructions on what to do next.

They may, for instance, tell you to roll the victim on their side to prevent aspiration. Or they may ask you to induce vomiting to reduce the damage and help get the drugs out of their system. The specifics depend on both the drug itself and the situation.

They will likely also send an ambulance to your location to take the victim to a medical center.

Local Support Groups for Addiction

Addiction is a disease. It creates observable, physical changes in the brain that make it difficult – if not impossible – to stop using without professional help.

The gold standard for overcoming addiction (whether it be to alcohol, prescription meds, or illicit drugs) is inpatient detox and rehabilitation. Studies have shown that these programs have the highest rate of recovery out of any other method.

But what happens after that? Where can you go to get the social, emotional, and motivational support you need to maintain sobriety after getting out of treatment? For that, there’s attending a local support group.

These groups help recovering addicts continually hone their coping skills and strategies so that they can maintain sobriety for longer and in the most trying of circumstances. And in many places, there are plenty of local support groups to choose from including AA, NA, and SMART Recovery.

Alcoholics Anonymous, also known as AA, is an organization that was designed to assist alcoholics during their recoveries. It was founded in Akron, Ohio in 1935 and today, has more than 2.1 million members and over 118 thousand different groups around the world.

Like other anonymous addiction support groups, AA utilizes the 12 Step Program. This program is built off of the 12 core principles of recovery that the founders believed were the quickest and most effective way of achieving sobriety.

And while programs like Alcoholics Anonymous don’t necessarily work for everyone (just like any other addiction treatment), this group is without a doubt one of the best and most accessible ways of building a strong support network. And that can be essential for maintaining sobriety.

Narcotics Anonymous, also known as NA, is another support group that focuses on helping addicts overcome cravings, kick their substance abuse habits, and maintain sobriety for the long-term.

Like Alcoholics Anonymous, NA is built on the fundamental principles of the 12 steps. Unlike AA, however, Narcotics Anonymous welcomes addicts of all kinds, not just alcoholics. Don’t be confused though – this program is just as open to alcohol addicts as it is to any other kind.

NA has a similar advantage as AA in that it is widespread, freely accessible, and open to all. Today, there are more than 67 thousand different weekly meetings taking place in 139 countries around the world.

And just like AA, there’s a fair amount of science backing up the effectiveness of this enormous program.

There are a number of NA meetings happening right inside Weiser too.

For some people, 12-step groups may be a bit off-putting due to the spiritual aspects of the steps. To be clear, these programs make it clear that people of any religion or faith – including agnosticism or atheism – are all welcome to attend. In fact, many people from all different spiritual backgrounds can still benefit from these groups.

That being said, there are other options available that don’t have the same touch of spirituality. And one of the best available is a group known as SMART Recovery. This program uses only evidence-based strategies and tools to help members feel empowered to take on their addiction and maintain sobriety.

Added to that, SMART Recovery meetings are run by trained professionals rather than the members themselves – and for some, that can mean more structure and clearer takeaways.

However, one of the downfalls of this group is the fact that meetings aren’t as easy to find as AA or NA. In fact, Idaho as a whole only has a few meetings in the entire state. Luckily, Ontario has one right nearby.

Ontario, Oregon – Meeting 4315

Not everyone is going to be able to attend the self-help meeting that they want. Maybe they don't have access to a car to travel in between sessions. Or maybe their job or home life is already filled to the brim with duties and obligations, and they simply can't make it to meetings in time.

No matter what the reason, just because you can’t attend a session in person doesn’t mean you don’t have access to the healing power of these groups. That’s where online support groups come in.

Whether you’re looking for NA groups, AA meetings, or SMART Recovery sessions, there are online options available to connect recovering addicts at nearly any time, in nearly any location.

These meetings take place in a variety of formats too. Some occur over email, others offer real-time chat functions, and others still allow members to call in for a more personal experience. In the end, just because you’re isolated geographically doesn’t mean you have to be socially.

Family/Friend Support Meetings

A substance abuse problem doesn't just hurt the addict. The friends, family members, partners, co-workers, and nearly everyone else in their lives are also impacted by their drug use. And for them, it can be hard to overcome the damage caused by addiction without help.

Luckily, there are plenty of support groups for friends and family members of addicts in the Weiser area.

If you’re a friend or family member of an alcoholic, you know just how much your loved one’s drinking can affect your life as well. Many social relationships and families have suffered and even failed at the hands of a member’s alcoholism. And in order to help heal these relationships, friends and families need support as well.

That’s where Al-Anon comes in. This group is specifically catered to those who have been hurt by a loved one’s drinking and helps encourage healing by connecting them with others just like them. It also follows the healing guidelines of the 12-steps, but with a focus on how they impact non-addicts instead.

It’s an essential resource for anyone who has had to watch their friend or family member struggle with addiction. And luckily, there are a few Al-Anon meetings that take place near Weiser, Idaho.

Children and teens need a different type of support when they have family members who are suffering from addiction. These are, after all, the formative years that set the foundation for the rest of their lives.

And that’s why it’s so important that children and teens growing up in an alcoholic home have specialized support that is centered specifically on the unique challenges of their age group. For that, there’s Alateen.

And while there aren’t many in Idaho, you can find the nearby Alateen meetings below.

Like Al-Anon, Nar-Anon is specifically for friends and family members of addicts. Although, this group (like NA) allows for addictions of all kinds – including alcohol. Unfortunately, there aren’t many Nar-Anon groups in Idaho, let alone around Weiser.

The closest is in Nampa. Have a look at its info below. And don’t forget to check out the online support groups too!

Nampa Nar-Anon
Saturdays, 10:00am
4170 East Amity
Nampa, ID 83687
Meeting contact info: Phone # - (800) 477-6291; Email – WSO@nar-anon.org

Like Nar-Anon and Al-Anon, SMART Recovery also offers support for friends and family members of struggling addicts. These groups offer a science-based, secular alternative to 12-step groups.

However, these groups are a bit harder to find in Idaho and around the country as a whole. And that means you may have to travel a little bit further to find one near you. Below are two SMART Recovery Family & Friends meetings happening near Weiser.

Idaho Falls, Idaho – Meeting 4403 *Family & Friends*
Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:30pm
These meetings are open to the public and follow a Family & Friends format.
The Center for HOPE
1501 Northgate Mile
Idaho Falls, Idaho 83401

Boise, Idaho – Meeting 4176 *Family & Friends*
Wednesdays from 5:30 to 7:00pm
These meetings are open to the public and follow a Family & Friends format.
PEER Wellness Center
963 S Orchard St
Boise, Idaho 83705

Just as addicts themselves have access to online support groups, so too do family members and friends of those struggling with addiction.

What's more, there are online versions of the three major types of addiction support: AA, NA, and SMART Recovery. Have a look below for more information on each.
