Redmond, Oregon Overdose, Support, and Treatment Addiction Resources

Despite the fact that America is becoming increasingly addicted to drugs like opioids, stimulants, and alcohol every year, struggling with this brain disease is so often an entirely isolating experience.

Many addicts feel like they have nowhere to turn for help – no one to look to for guidance. And that can make staying safe or recovering from an addiction harder than ever.

Fortunately, there are a number of addiction resources within Redmond, Oregon to help substance abusers look after their health and get support or treatment when they need it most. These resources range from overdose help and local support groups to professional recovery programs for long-term sobriety.

In the end, while it can feel like you’re all alone when suffering from addiction, there are plenty of addiction resources nearby to help you recover.

Help During an Overdose

When it comes to the damaging effects of a substance abuse problem, none are quite as devastating as an overdose. This condition, which occurs when the body takes in more of a drug than it can handle, can cause permanent physical and mental disabilities. It can also cost you your life.

To make matters worse, fatal overdoses are becoming more and more common with each passing year. In the United States alone, nearly 90 thousand Americans died in 2017 from a drug overdose involving substances like heroin, fentanyl, cocaine, and meth.

The problem has gotten so bad that drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50.

It’s more important now than ever before, then, to know what to do during an overdose – because it’s more common than ever.

What to do During a Drug or Alcohol Overdose

The most critical step in treating an overdose is contacting emergency services. So if you recognize the signs of an overdose, call 911 immediately. The professionals on the other end of the line can both send an ambulance to your location and provide lifesaving instructions that can improve the outcome of this medical event.

If you do need to leave the side of an overdose victim (even if it is just for a minute to call 911), it’s important to place them into what’s known as the “recovery position.” This position can help reduce the likelihood of deadly complications like vomiting or choking.

Depending on the condition of the victim, the operator may instruct you to begin performing CPR on the person who overdosed. They may also ask you several questions about the situation, such as:

  • What is the state of the victim (conscious, unconscious, breathing, etc.)?
  • What substance did the victim take? Did they have a prescription for it?
  • What are the victim's height, weight, and age?
  • When did the victim last take the substance? How much did they take?

Once an ambulance arrives, the emergency service workers will take over. They may even administer overdose reversal drugs like naloxone to reduce the harm of the overdose.

In the end, the key to securing the absolute best outcome is to contact emergency services quickly and to respond honestly to their questions.

Any delay can cause lasting and even permanent damage or death.

12-Step Support Groups

When it comes to local support groups, few are as popular, widespread, and trusted as 12 step groups. These meetings are completely free, 100% anonymous, and are one of the best ways for alcoholics and substance abusers to stay connected and sober.

Each of these groups is built on the same core 12 principles of recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous, the first 12-step group. And since then, the 12-step model has expanded to a variety of other addictions as well. Today, the 12-step model is used in over 30 different “anonymous” groups, including:

And while there are plenty of everyday benefits these groups can bring, one of the best things about 12-step groups is the fact that their effectiveness for combating addiction is backed up by real hard science.

In fact, 12-step facilitation is one of 8 behavioral therapies endorsed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

The three most well-known 12-step groups are Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Al-Anon.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)

The original 12-step group, Alcoholics Anonymous or AA is widely considered to be one of the largest support groups the world has ever seen.

It was first founded in 1935 in Akron, Ohio by a stockbroker named Bill W. and a surgeon known as Dr. Bob S. And since its first year, it has grown from just two members to nearly 2.1 million members attending over 120 thousand groups all across the globe.

Given just how widespread AA is all over the country (and the world), it isn’t surprising that Redmond, Oregon has plenty of Alcoholics Anonymous groups to choose from. In fact, there are several meetings taking place in this city every day of the week.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA)

While it isn’t nearly as popular as AA, Narcotics Anonymous or NA has helped countless substance abusers regain control over their addiction.

Founded in 1953, it has since grown to include nearly 67 thousand different weekly meetings in 139 countries all over the world.

And while AA deals solely with alcoholism, Narcotics Anonymous welcomes abusers of any substance – heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and even alcohol.

In the end, NA is a perfect source of support for anyone struggling with an addiction of any kind. Bottom line – Narcotics Anonymous just plain works.

Like AA, there are a variety of Narcotics Anonymous meetings taking place within Redmond.

Al-Anon/Alateen for Family & Friends

As destructive as addiction can be for the addicts themselves, people often forget the strain and trauma it can impose on friends and family members as well. Betrayal, distrust, financial instability, and even downright abuse can all often go hand in hand with addiction. And as a result, the people closest to substance abusers many times have their own set of problems they need special support to overcome.

Thankfully, there’s Al-Anon. This group is focused specifically on providing emotional and motivational support to friends and family of users while also offering guidance along the way.

Alateen, a subgroup of Al-Anon, is specifically for teenagers and youths who have been impacted by the drinking of someone close to them. The age-focused nature of this group helps address the unique problems that appear at this stage of development while also connecting members with people just like them.

Al-Anon isn’t as widespread as other 12-step groups like AA or NA. However, Redmond itself does have two weekly meetings to choose from.

Other Support Groups for Addiction

While many people have found healing with the 12 steps, these types of groups may not be for everyone. Some may not subscribe to the same spiritual beliefs that these groups tend to promote. Others may feel like the steps themselves just don’t work for their idea of what sobriety looks like. And others still may just be looking for something else.

Luckily, there are a number of 12-step alternatives to choose from. Three of the most popular are SMART Recovery, Secular Organizations for Sobriety, and Moderation Management.

Professional Addiction Treatment: The Key to Long-Term Sobriety

Regardless of how long they’ve been drinking or using drugs, most people who suffer from addiction really don’t believe they need any kind of formal addiction treatment to help them stop. They don’t consider treatment as a necessity in their lives, and as a result, they tend to continue using because they believe they don’t really have a problem.

In fact, according to a national survey, an estimated 95.5% of all addicts in the U.S. (around 16.9 million people) don’t get the help they need because they’re in complete denial about their addiction.

As a result, they often continue down the destructive path of alcoholism or drug addiction for the rest of their lives with little hope of recovery.

That’s why it’s so important to recognize how critical a professional treatment program really is – it could just end up saving your life.

There is a slew of benefits for choosing to partner with a professional addiction treatment program compared to trying to tackle addiction all on your own. Below are just some of the most notable.

Professional treatment:

  • Provides access to scientifically proven methods of rehabilitation that offer the absolute best chances of achieving long-term sobriety.
  • May include several specialized medications designed specifically to make quitting easier. Suboxone, methadone, naltrexone, disulfiram, and Antabuse are just some of these medications that can reduce the severity of withdrawals and eliminate cravings.
  • Surrounds patients with medically trained staff so as to prevent or treat any life-threatening complications that may arise (delirium tremens, malnutrition, dehydration, aspiration, choking, etc.)
  • Connects program members with additional resources to further improve the likelihood of long-term sobriety such as support groups or outpatient programs.
  • Provides treatment that gets to the core of your addiction (emotional trauma, underlying mental disorders, ineffective coping methods) rather than just treating the symptoms – and that means a better chance at a full recovery.

Treating an addiction isn’t a one-step process. It takes hard work, perseverance, and continued dedication. And in most cases, it also requires several phases of treatment.

In general, there are two main types of treatment programs: detoxification and rehabilitation.

Detoxification

When someone is suffering from an addiction, it’s often accompanied by physical dependence. This is when the body becomes so used to the presence of a substance that it’s no longer able to function normally without it.

Two hallmarks of physical dependence are tolerance (needing to take more of a substance to reach the same effect) and withdrawals (uncomfortable physical and/or mental symptoms when not taking the substance).

Detoxification is the process of dealing with the physical dependence side of addiction during recovery. Its main function is to help patients push through the uncomfortable withdrawals after quitting and to prevent patients from relapsing during the most trying times of the process.

A professional detox program is also important in that it helps prevent and treat life-threatening withdrawals. Some of the most disturbing and potentially deadly withdrawals include:

  • Experiencing auditory or visual hallucinations or confusion
  • Serious problems with digestion, including nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Recurring Grand Mal seizures
  • Heart issues such as palpitations, irregular heartbeat or even heart attacks
  • A lack of oxygen in the brain, otherwise known as strokes

There are two main types of detoxification programs: holistic and medical. The majority of programs tend to use a combination of these two approaches.

You can find more information about drug and alcohol detoxification here.

Rehabilitation

While detox is concerned primarily with the physical side of addiction, rehabilitation focuses on the mental side of it.

Unfortunately, this fact can lead many to believe that detoxification is the only step that’s necessary when it comes to treatment. But in fact, rehabilitation is actually equally as important (if not more so) than detox. NIDA actually is careful to point out that:

…medical detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long-term drug use.

Rehab programs usually fall into one of three categories: 

  • Inpatient Rehab This is the most intensive form of treatment. Patients are required to eat, sleep, and receive treatment all on the same campus grounds. While it offers a higher grade of care, it can be quite disruptive for some since many don’t allow patients to attend work, school, or other obligations at the same time. It typically lasts for around 30 days.
  • Outpatient Rehab A more flexible form of treatment, outpatient rehab takes place during evening treatment sessions that typically last an hour or so. They also happen only several times a week. And while it gives patients significantly more freedom, the risk of relapse is generally higher here. Programs last around 3 months.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) – A step up from typical outpatient, an IOP involves longer evening treatment sessions (several hours) that take place more frequently throughout the week (around 3 to 5 times). It tries to strike a balance between flexibility and level of care, making it a great choice for many.

Should You Travel for Treatment?

Within Redmond itself, there are only a few different options for professional treatment programs. There are:

  • 2 detox centers
  • 2 rehabilitation programs
  • 1 sober living program

And given the sparse number of treatment options available, it isn’t a surprise that many people suffering from addiction in this Oregon town prefer to seek treatment outside of Redmond. Doing so offers much more variety in programs as well as much more privacy.

However, there are more benefits involved in travelling for treatment than just more privacy. These include:

  • A higher level of care than a single town can offer.
  • It solidifies the commitment to recovery.
  • Patients can focus solely on themselves (critical for a successful recovery).
  • It reduces the rate of program dropouts and improves relapse prevention.
  • It can open up the door to programs catered to meet your specific needs.
  • May offer more amenities than local programs can provide, making it more comfortable and often more successful.

What About the Costs of Treatment?

Believe it or not, addiction treatment is now more affordable than it’s ever been.

First off, insurance companies are now required to provide coverage for addiction detox and rehab programs all over the country because of recent changes in our healthcare laws. The main players here are the passing of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). These new laws require insurance companies to provide equivalent coverage for both physical and mental disorders (including addiction).

As a result, the overwhelming majority of insurance providers now cover both addiction detoxification and rehabilitation services. Some may even allow for patients to have zero out-of-pocket costs.

Be sure to verify your insurance coverage before deciding on a certain facility to prevent any surprises though.

Many addiction facilities also provide a range of financial support options. These may include:

  • Sliding scale costs based on individual income
  • Payment plans
  • Financing options
  • Grants
  • Scholarships

As you can see, treatment has never been more affordable. And when you compare it to the staggering costs of maintaining an addiction, the wisest financial choice is clear.
