Overdose Help

With each passing year, fatal overdoses in America are becoming more and more widespread.

In 1999, for example, national drug overdose deaths numbered just 16,849. Over the course of fewer than two decades, overdose deaths spiked by more than 316%! In 2017 alone, about 70,237 people in the U.S. lost their lives to a drug overdose. And in 2018, even more are expected to die.

It’s never been more critical, then, to know just how to spot the signs of an overdose and (equally important) to be able to treat the victim effectively.

The first step to treating an overdose is first recognizing the signs. However, it’s not as easy as most people might think.

Many different factors all contribute to varying signs and symptoms of an overdose: unique genes, body type, past drug use. But one constant is that different types of drugs often produce different symptoms.

Below are some of the most common types of addictive substances being abused today along with their most typical symptoms of an overdose.

Heroin

  • AIRWAYS AND LUNGS 
    • No breathing
    • Shallow breathing
    • Slow and difficult breathing 
  • EYES, EARS, NOSE, AND THROAT

If you notice any of the symptoms of an overdose, it’s vital to get help, and to get it fast. And that means calling 9-1-1 immediately. Operators will be able to send an ambulance to provide more complete care, but they’ll also be able to instruct you on what you can do to help.

If you do have to leave the side of an overdose victim, even if it’s just to call for help, it’s important to place them into the recovery position. This position helps cut down on the chances for deadly complications like choking. And even if you are only leaving for a minute or two, this simple step can easily end up saving the life of the victim.

Operators at 911 may ask for certain information about the victim like:

  • What is their height, weight, age, and sex?
  • What kind of drug did they take?
  • Did they have a legitimate prescription for it?
  • How much did they take?
  • Did they use any other drugs at the same time?

It’s vital to the safety of the victim that you’re 100% honest in answering these questions.

They may also ask you to perform CPR on the victim.

Once the ambulance arrives, they may administer overdose-reversing drugs like naloxone. They’ll also likely transport the victim to a hospital.

In the end, honesty and early action are the two most critical steps in treating an overdose.

Battle Ground Resource Profile

Support Groups

One of the most crucial aspects of a solid recovery plan is getting the right amount and type of social support.

Addiction can be an incredibly isolating disease. And unfortunately, the many stigmas surrounding it can keep addicts from looking to others to help them achieve sobriety.

For some, the problem isn’t so much whether or not to ask – it’s where to look for help.

In fact, according to a national survey, nearly 11% of addicts who admitted needing help didn’t get it just because they didn’t know where to find it.

But for residents of Battle Ground, Washington, there are plenty of local support groups to help during recovery.

One of the most widely known support groups in the world, Alcoholics Anonymous has helped countless individuals overcome their alcoholism.

These meetings follow what’s known as the 12-step road to recovery. This approach focuses on self-awareness, giving up power, and admitting faults. And it’s the basis on which many other support groups are also founded.

AA follows a group talk therapy format in most cases. Members share experiences, hardships, and successes with other members. And in that sharing, AA members learn more about their own personal addiction and how best to overcome it.

Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are also incredibly easy to find, both in Battle Ground and in the surrounding areas.

Though not quite as popular as AA, Narcotics Anonymous is another one of the most well-known 12-step groups. But rather than focusing solely on addiction to alcohol, NA also addresses addictions to other drugs as well.

Heroin, cocaine, prescription pills, and even alcohol addicts are all welcome to attend.

The format and membership benefits are largely the same as AA. And like Alcoholics Anonymous, meetings are 100% anonymous, open to all, and free to attend.

Unfortunately, there is only one NA meeting within Battle Ground itself.

For friends and family members, addiction can be just as damaging as it is to the addicts themselves. Trust is often broken. Finances can be destroyed. And life as they knew it can easily be turned entirely upside down when someone in your life is an alcoholic.

That’s why it’s so critical that those affected by someone else’s alcoholism know about Al-Anon. Al-Anon is a 12-step group devoted to helping friends, family members, and even co-workers of alcoholics get the support they need to stay safe, happy, and healthy.

These groups aren’t quite as popular as AA or NA. And as a result, meetings are a bit more spread out. Even so, there are still lots of Al-Anon meetings to choose from in the Battle Ground, Washington area.

Like Al-Anon, Alateen is devoted to helping those around an alcoholic get the help they need. However, this group is specifically focused on helping young adults and children.

This more targeted approach can help young people feel more secure in opening up, and it can also help them get answers to age-specific questions too.

These groups aren’t especially widespread so meetings may take place a bit further away from Battle Ground. Even still, there are a good number of meetings to choose from.

Alcoholism can have long-lasting consequences, both on the addict and their family. And in fact, many people who grew up in an alcoholic home still have lingering problems they still face as an adult.

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA) is a 12-step group dedicated to helping this population in particular. These groups focus on the issues specific to adult children of alcoholics and help them learn how to live happy, healthy lives despite their dark past.

Below are just some of the closest ACoA meetings nearby.

The only non-12-step group in this list, SMART Recovery is a group-based support program that offers an alternative take on recovery. Rather than focusing on the 12 steps, SMART Recovery teaches members actionable techniques for avoiding triggers, overcoming cravings, and maintaining sobriety.

Groups are led by a certified instructor rather than by members themselves. And on top of that, SMART Recovery also takes a completely non-spiritual approach to staying clean.

Below are just some of the SMART Recovery meetings happening around Battle Ground.

Despite just how many local support groups there are in the area, not everyone will be able to attend these in-person meetings. Decades ago that would mean that they had nowhere to turn to for help. But today, the internet has opened up a whole new world of support opportunities for struggling substance abusers.

These groups vary in format. But many offer 24/7 forums, direct chat capabilities, and even call-in options. It’s a more flexible way to get the support you need.

Below are just a few online support groups to get you started.

While support can go a long way for making recovery more successful, the overwhelming majority of addicts are going to need professional help to attain sobriety. That’s because no matter how much willpower they have, addiction is still a disease. And like any other disease, it simply must be treated in order for it to get better.

It isn’t just a better recovery rate that sets a professional treatment program apart either. These facilities also offer plenty of other benefits as well.

They may, for example, offer referral programs to aftercare services. They can also cut down on dangerous medical complications that might pop up during treatment too.

In the end, choosing to partner with a professional treatment program is bar none the best choice to make on the road to recovery.

Not only will these programs help keep you safe. But they’ll also help ensure that you have the best chances possible at getting sober and staying sober.

Choosing the Right Recovery Program

Unfortunately, there aren’t any addiction treatment centers or sober living homes within Battle Ground itself. And for many, that can make finding the right facility even harder.

However, finding the right program should not be based on proximity alone. Instead, try and find the facility that meets your particular needs.

In order to make that search just a little bit easier, here are just a few questions to consider asking when interviewing different programs. 

  • What kinds of services do you offer (detox, inpatient/outpatient/IOP rehab, residential)
  • Do you have 24/7 nursing care?
  • Is your program medication or holistic in nature?
  • Do you treat co-occurring disorders?
  • Are you nationally accredited?
  • Do you have individualized treatment plans?
  • Do you have staff experienced in treating your specific kind of addiction?
  • Do you accept my insurance?
  • What is your success rate?
  • Do you offer aftercare referral services?
  • How long does your program last?
  • What is your staff-to-patient ratio?

Types of Programs Available

It can be hard to find the right facility for you. But one of the best ways to know what to look for is to educate yourself on what different programs offer.

In general, there are two different types of professional addiction treatment programs: detoxification programs and rehabilitation programs.

Addiction is a highly transformative disease. Everything about you – your body, your brain, your personality – is all changed by compulsive substance abuse. And eventually, an addict’s pattern of drug abuse becomes so regular that their body actually depends on drugs to function normally.

And as a result, when an addict attempts to get off of that drug, their body is thrown into a host of incredibly uncomfortable physical and mental symptoms known as withdrawals.

Withdrawals vary from drug to drug. Some are more bodily in nature (muscle aches, nausea, diarrhea) while others tend to affect the mind more (depression, anxiety, psychosis). It simply depends on which substance was being abused.

These symptoms can be so overpowering that many addicts can’t actually get through the symptoms without turning back to substance abuse. And even worse, some may even die from the many health complications involved.

That’s where professional detoxification comes in. These programs are designed to help addicts push through drug withdrawals by making symptoms easier to manage and shorter in duration.

They also use medical oversight and 24/7 care to both prevent and treat the health complications that can pop up along the way.

In the end, detox is the absolute best way to get through withdrawal and ensure a successful recovery.

Rehabilitation focuses less on the body and more on the mind. Over time, addicts become unable to control their own actions when it comes to drug use. And many are entirely unable to prevent themselves from staying clean.

Rehab is designed to put the control back in the hands of the individual. By using one-on-one counseling, group talk therapy, and behavioral therapies, these programs teach recovering addicts new ways of coping with the stresses of daily life and staying clean.

These programs are typically quite a bit longer than detox programs (from 30-90 days compared to 1 to 2 weeks). But for many, this is where the real work behind recovery actually begins.

In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), rehab is so important that without it, detox alone does little to nothing to prevent future substance abuse.

Rehab programs are broken down into either inpatient or outpatient.

An inpatient program provides on-site living and treatment, like a recovery summer camp. Patients in this program are required to eat, sleep, and receive care all in the same general location. This can make it hard for some to tend to daily obligations like a job or school. But it is the highest level of care available and is a much more focused approach to recovery.

Outpatient is more about flexibility. Patients in these programs are able to live their day to day life as normal since treatment happens during the evenings several times a week. However, the risk of relapse is usually a bit higher too.

Finally, some programs are considered to be intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). These offer outpatient treatment services that tend to last longer and occur more frequently. It’s a higher level of care, though not as high as inpatient.

The best program depends entirely on the individual. And in most cases, a conversation with an addiction professional will help patients figure out which program is right for them.
