Asotin, Washington Addiction Resource Guide

Asotin, Washington Addiction Resource Guide

Serving as the county seat of Asotin County, Asotin, Washington is a small city with a population of just over 1,200. Over a quarter of the people living in Asotin are children under the age of 18. These impressionable youths are at the prime age to begin experimenting with drugs. This can lead to a dangerous addiction that can impact their entire lives.

Opiates are without a doubt at the forefront of the drug epidemic sweeping the state of Washington as a whole. For example, the powerful narcotic, fentanyl, has seen an increase of nearly 70 percent in accidental overdoses in the first half of 2018. This causes untold tragedy and a price tag in the billions each year.

A drug or alcohol addiction is a debilitating disease that usually requires assistance to manage and treat effectively. While the first step must be a personal decision, there are many professional people and organizations to help out along the way. Addiction resources are available throughout Asotin and the surrounding area. Contacting one and starting the path to recovery today is the best way to begin living a safe and fulfilling life.

Recovery Meetings and Support Groups in Asotin, Washington

One of the most important components of successfully recovering from any addiction is support. While assistance from family and friends is immensely helpful, it is just as vital to receive it from those who know what you are going through. Helpful insights, or just an understanding shoulder to lean on, are just a couple of the benefits you can receive from fellow sufferers and professionals. 

A prime resource for this type of aid is a 12-step program. These programs, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous increase the chances of success exponentially. Support systems like these are available for both patients and those who love them.

There is no name more synonymous with treating an alcohol addiction than Alcoholics Anonymous. For more than eight decades, AA has helped millions of people around the globe to take control of their addiction in a way that is both achievable and long-lasting. AA centers around developing different personal outlooks and activities. This reaches to the heart of the disease rather than just the symptoms. Personal sponsors are always ready to help out when the going gets tough.

It may take a bit of searching to find the perfect AA meeting for each specific situation. If young children are a factor, child-care services may be something to look for. Time of the day is another important variable, as well as whether or not the meeting is open only to those seeking sobriety themselves. Following is a listing of several of the meetings available in and around Asotin.

If the addiction is drugs rather than alcohol, the best resource is a Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meeting in Asotin, rather than an AA meeting. Drug addicts have different needs than those struggling from alcohol dependency. An NA meeting caters specifically to these needs, with a 12-step program similar to AA. Success stories are plentiful from those that have used the NA program. 

While there are no NA meetings directly in Asotin, there are a few in nearby Lewiston. All are roughly about 5 miles away.

Time: 4:00 pm

Addiction does not only affect the sufferer, friends and loved ones have a battle in front of them as well. Understanding how to balance one's own life with the needs of an addict can be challenging to say the least. 

Fortunately, resources are available for this group of people as well. For friends or loved ones of an alcoholic, Al-Anon meetings provide essential insight into how best to help them. They also give the needed support to ensure loved ones do not derail their own life in the effort. There are no Al-Anon meetings in Asotin. The nearest would be roughly 60 miles away in Walla Walla.

As Al-Anon is for loved ones of alcoholics, Nar Anon is the counterpart for friends and family of drug abusers. As with AA and NA, the principles governing the two types of meetings are relatively the same. The difference lies in the specific topics discussed, which can be very different between alcoholics and drug addicts. Here, loved ones of drug addicts can find like-minded souls to help them through the difficult times and problems they face 

There are no Nar Anon meetings in Asotin itself. The closest meetings can be found roughly about 90 miles away in Spokane and Spokane Valley.

Time: 6:00 PM
Group name: Spokane Valley NFG
Location: 15601 East 24th Avenue Spokane Valley, WA 99037

Children are extremely vulnerable and impressionable. As a result, the impact from having a loved one with a drug or alcohol addiction can be especially difficult for them to cope with. This makes it of vital importance for young people to get the counseling and support they need.

Alateen caters specifically to children ages 13 to 18. They provide an intimate setting with other children in their age bracket. This allows them to open up much more than would normally be possible around adults.

There are no Alateen meetings in or around the Asotin area. The closest meetings for Asotin residents are over 250 miles away.

Time: 7:30 PM
Group name: Healing Hearts Alateen
Location: 1702 Main St Lake Stevens WA 98258
262.4 miles away

Time: 7:30 AM
Group name: Lake Hills Alateen
Location: 2650 148th Ave SE Bellevue WA 98007
255.1 miles away

A 12-step program is not for everyone. Many people have visited these types of meetings, and found they didn't work as well for their personal situation. Relying on faith, a major centerpiece to 12-step programs, may not approach the problem as well as something more tangible.

Self-Management and Recovery Training, or SMART, is focused on a scientific approach. Anyone with addiction can come to these meetings and learn targeted skills and coping mechanisms. These help manage cravings, and allow participants to develop a healthy mind and body.

Compared to the more established support systems, SMART is a comparative newcomer. As such, there are none yet established in the Asotin area. The closest meetings can be found Richland, over 100 miles away. If you don't want to make the trip, online meetings can be found as well.

Time: 3:00 PM
Location: 500 Amon Park Dr. , Richland, Washington 99352, USA

Time: 6:00 PM
