AA Meetings in Taylorsville, Utah

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) has a long and storied history. It was created by a recovering alcoholic, and since then, has helped generations of addicts get clean.

Participants work through the program's 12 steps. Commit themselves to permanent sobriety. And work to understand how their addiction has affected the people in their lives.

The program is confidential, free, and there are meetings across Taylorsville. Alcoholics may attend as frequently or infrequently as they like. A host of sobriety-oriented events and meetups are available throughout the year.

Here is a list of these meetings held in Taylorsville:

  • Wednesday 7:00 PM Back Alley AA Beginners Meeting Alpine Center 5689 South Redwood Rd. Taylorsville UT 84123. This is an open meeting designed for beginners with everyone being able to participate as they want. It’s located right off I-215 for easy access from other parts of the city and beyond.
  • Saturday 10:00 AM Fresh Air 12 & 12 Study 1565 Lovely Rd. Taylorsville UT 84123. This is also an open meeting, but it’s a step study. This means the group takes one of the 12 steps and reviews it each week as part of the discussion. This location isn’t far from the Taylorsville High School and Plymouth Elementary School, which makes it convenient for parents dropping their kids off to school.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings in Taylorsville, Utah

Drug Support Groups in Taylorsville, Utah

There is no one size fits all when it comes to recovery programs. NA is no different. NA encourages addicts to rely on a “higher power.” Some people are uncomfortable by these religious references. Others prefer a supplement to the 12 steps.

SMART Recovery offers an alternative model, and you can find a local meeting here.

SMART Recovery uses its own list of steps to help addicts move towards long-term sobriety. As with the 12-steps models, you must complete each step. However, they are often different from AA and NA. The program is scientifically based and uses proven techniques for recovery.

There are four steps in this process, which help you take ownership of your addiction and realize you can overcome it. You can find a couple of meetings in a nearby location.

Wednesday 6:00 PM
180 E. 2100 S.
Salt Lake City UT 84115
This is a public meeting where anyone can attend. It follows a standard format. All participants introduce themselves first. Followed by about 40 to 50 minutes of discussion of a certain topic.

A second meeting is held at this location on Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM. It has the same format and is also open to the public.

Alcohol Treatment Resources

NA, like AA, is not a perfect fit for every recovering addict. Secular Organizations for Sobriety offers online drug and alcohol support groups here. You will find alcohol treatment centers within the area as well. Many of them are outpatient facilities while others offer inpatient rehab.

When you’re abusing drugs or drinking heavily, you’re at risk of an overdose. The risk goes up if you combine two or more substances. It’s important to know what you should do if someone you love is overdosing on a drug.

You must act fast if someone is overdosing or suffering from alcohol poisoning. Both of these conditions can lead to death or severe permanent damage if not treated immediately.

You should call 911 in case of an emergency. The closest hospital in the area is St. Mark's Taylorsville Emergency Center. This facility is a stand-alone center designed to treat life-threatening and serious emergencies.

There are 10 patient exam rooms along with comprehensive imaging services and laboratory. The facility is open 24 hours a day to serve those in the nearby community. It’s located south of City Hall and Fire Station 118.

If someone is overdosing on a substance, you need to get help right away. A naloxone handheld injector or nasal spray can stop the effects of a heroin overdose if the family member has access to it.

Otherwise, the best thing to do is call 911 so that first-responders can arrive and begin administering the treatment.

If you attempt to drive someone to the hospital, you’re delaying treatment which could result in death for the overdose victim.

Some people feel that prescription medications are safer than other drugs. What they don’t realize is the amount to get high isn’t much less than the amount for an overdose.

It can happen when a person takes more of the drug to get high or when it’s used in combination with another substance, such as heroin or alcohol.

As with illicit drugs, an overdose of prescription medications requires immediate medical attention. Treatment given will depend on the type of medication that was taken in excess.

Overdose symptoms will vary based on the type of substance being used. Many times, the heart rate and breathing will become slow and shallow. However, some medications will speed up the heart rate and raise the blood pressure.

In all cases, you need to get help for a person who has overdosed on a substance as quickly as you can. The best option is to call 911 and keep the person comfortable and safe until help arrives.

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

Why Seek Help for Your Addiction?

The best time to seek help for an addiction is always today. Addiction is a progressive disease, which means it only gets worse as time marches on. Seeking help now, though, maximizes your chances at long-term recovery.

Denial is a powerful symptom of addiction that can cause you to indefinitely delay getting the help you need and deserve. If you're not sure whether or not you qualify as an addict, ask yourself if the following questions. If you or someone you know answer yes to more than a handful, you may be an addict:

  • Have you experienced physical or psychological withdrawal symptoms?
  • Do people you love plead with you to stop using drugs?
  • Do you have a previous history of addiction?
  • Do you live with other addicts?
  • Do you have many friends who are addicts?
  • Do you live in an abusive or dysfunctional environment and use drugs to cope?
  • Do you use alcohol or drugs to feel normal?
  • Are you concerned you won't be able to do your job without the assistance of alcohol or drugs?
  • Have you experienced drug or alcohol-related financial difficulties?
  • Do you sometimes do or say things you don't remember while under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
  • Have you done things you regret due to alcohol or drugs?
  • Do you use drugs or alcohol around your children?
  • Do you struggle to function when you're not under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
  • Do you use alcohol or drugs around your children or other children in your family?
  • Have you experienced drug or alcohol-related legal problems?
  • Do you structure your day around when you'll get your next alcohol or drug fix?
  • Do addiction or mental illness run in your family?
  • Do you become violent or aggressive when you drink or use drugs?
  • Have you broken the law to gain access to alcohol or drugs?
  • Do you have health problems that are caused or worsened by drugs or alcohol?
  • Are you mentally ill?
  • Do you feel hopeless about your ability to get sober?
  • Do you lie to others about your alcohol or drug use?

If the answers to these questions make you think you have an addiction, you need to seek help. You’ll need to start with detox if you’re still using to get the drug out of your system. Once you complete detox, you will need to find a rehab facility to help you deal with your addiction. As you attend therapy, you’ll learn positive ways of dealing with stress rather than using drugs.

For some, outpatient treatment may provide the assistance needed. You go to therapy for a few hours each week while you care for your family and job. Another option is inpatient rehab, which is often best for those who suffer from a long-term addiction or heavy use.

Northpoint Recovery offers a premiere solution to help addicts begin the road to recovery. We feature a facility in the Treasure Valley area, which is located in southwestern Idaho. This center is designed  for people in Idaho and other areas who are seeking a way out of their addiction prison. If you live in Taylorsville, you may wonder why you should consider an out-of-state inpatient rehab center for your addiction treatment.

Reasons to Go Out of State

For many people, the primary reason to look for drug addiction help in another state is to give them a new perspective. It can be helpful to remove the person from the situation they are currently in. This means the town where they live, relationships they have been part of and away from other triggers. Just getting away can help the person focus on recovery.

You also have the ability to enjoy more confidentiality away from the people who know - and sometimes judge you. You may not want everyone to know you're going to a rehab center. Privacy is often important on such a sensitive subject.

If you choose to find a treatment center out of state, you are less likely to leave. You've invested time and effort into finding this place, and it may be more difficult to walk out, especially if someone brings you to the facility.

Reach Out for Help for Your Addiction at a Premiere Facility

Patients who come to our facility will receive an individualized treatment plan that meets their unique needs. In addition, we offer the highest staff to patient ratio in the area for more attention for those who need the extra support.

With our holistic approach, we focus on treating the whole person through healthy food prepared by a professional caterer. You can also be active through regular exercise as well as hiking in the beautiful outdoors. Take a yoga class or enjoy personal training to help you achieve personal goals.

Our inpatient addiction treatment program includes detox as well as a rehab plan. You’ll attend support groups and go through individual counseling. You’ll also get involved in the community through volunteering to give you a sense of purpose.

With our 24-hour nursing care, you can feel safe and comfortable as you begin your journey to sobriety and a new life. It can be beneficial to go out of state for drug rehab.

If you’re ready to take the next step or if you would like more information, contact Northpoint Recovery today. Start your new life today and find out how we can help you love life.
