Benton City, Washington Addiction Resource Guide

Benton City lies in Benton County, and is an old railroad city dating back to the early 20th century. As with many small towns in Washington state, Benton City has its share of addiction issues. Alcohol is the most common addiction, due primarily to its social acceptance, and how easy it is to buy. However, drug addiction is quickly becoming much more common, as with most areas of the country.

No other drug type is this seen more than with opiates. Rather than being just a big city problem, opiate addiction is now rampant in rural communities as well. Benton City, with a population of a little over 3,000, definitely falls into this category. With the increasing availability of prescription opiates, this trend is sadly expected to continue.

It is impossible to live life to its fullest potential while shackled to a destructive substance abuse problem. Given how potent these addictions can be, going it alone is a dicey prospect at best. Maximize your chances of an effective and long-lasting recovery by using the following Benton City, Washington addiction resources.

Recovery Meetings and Support Groups in Benton City, Washington

Trying to tackle sobriety alone is a losing proposition. Even following an in-patient program, continuing support is vital to maintaining an addiction-free lifestyle. One good source of support is friends and family. However, professionals and fellow addicts share an understanding difficult to find from those who have never suffered from addiction. The structured environment of these outpatient programs is also a key tool in the battle against substance abuse. 

The most helpful outpatient resources usually center around a 12-step program. Entities like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous have decades of experience in helping recovering addicts of all types and ages. There are even meetings that are geared specifically towards those who have a recovering friend or loved one.

Since its founding in 1935, AA has been a shining example of the effectiveness of the 12-step program. Across the world, millions of men and women have reclaimed their lives from addiction with the help of AA. Personal development in many areas allows a participant to understand the roots of their addiction. This is vital to staying away from the bottle in the long run. 

There are a few options for AA that are located directly in Benton City. Read on to find one perfect for your needs and timetable.

Having an addiction to drugs is different than an alcohol addiction. Some issues that alcoholics contend with vary when compared to drug addicts, and vice versa. While AA is the prime tool for alcohol abuse, substance abuse is served best by NA. While the 12-step program is similar in both, the intimacy and targeted focus makes NA much more helpful for addicts. 

While there is only one listed meeting in Benton City proper, there are a multitude to choose from around 10 miles away in Richland.

Having a friend or loved one addicted to alcohol can be a struggle. The need to find a balance between their needs and your own is a constant challenge. No good can come from someone completely upending their life to help out a wayward friend or family member. 

Having a support system like Al-Anon in place allows friends and loved ones to meet with those in similar situations. The sharing of ideas and advice can give insight into how best to manage both self and sufferer. There are no Al-Anon meetings in Benton City; however, several take place each week in nearby Kennewick.

Group name: Tuesday Book Study AFG
Location: Kennewick First Lutheran Church, 418 N Yelm St Kennewick

Those who care for alcoholics are not the only group with effective support available. Family and friends of drug addicts can also find solace and assistance at Nar Anon meetings. While the two types of groups are similar, the topics vary greatly. Loved ones of drug addicts face unique challenges, which must be addressed differently. 

There are no Nar Anon meetings in or around Benton City itself. The closest available are located over 140 miles away.

Children can be especially vulnerable when having to deal with a friend or family member with an addiction. The pressure may be there to grow up faster, in order to help take care of them. Navigating the many pitfalls of childhood is difficult enough. Add on the burden of caring for someone with an addiction can tarnish a young person's life before it has barely started. 

Adult groups have an atmosphere that may not be comfortable for children to really open up in. This makes the intimate and personal setting of Alateen meetings such an advantage for children between the ages of 13 and 18. Teens can seek help and support from their peers, those that really know what they are going through. 

Alateen meetings in the Benton City area are lacking, so some travel is necessary to reach one. Most are in the northwest region of the state, roughly 150 miles away.

Monday
Time: 7:00 PM
Group name: West Seattle Alateen
Location: 3940 41st Ave SW Seattle
163 miles away

Tuesday
Time: 7:30 PM
Group name: Steps To Freedom Alateen
Location: 8310 Macarthur Blvd Vancouver
155 miles away

Thursday
Time: 7:30 AM
Group name: Lake Hills Alateen
Location: 2650 148th Ave SE Bellevue

Not all people respond well to a 12-step program. Most of these programs rely heavily on faith, which may not be compatible with each person's belief system. While 12-step programs do not require a belief in an actual divine being, the concept of a higher power might be difficult for some to rationalize in general. Having something rooted in science can be much more effective for individuals like this. 

A worthy alternative that falls into this category is Self-Management and Recovery Training, or SMART. Here you will find a 4-point system that is extremely beneficial for those with many varieties of addictive and destructive behaviors. The prime focus here is promoting a healthy mind and body. This is achieved through the mastery of different strategies and skills. 

While there are no SMART meetings directly in Benton City, they can be found not too far away in Richland. If you prefer a virtual setting, online meetings are held frequently.
