Buckley Drug & Alcohol Recovery Resources

Buckley is a small Washington community that sits below the towering Mt. Rainier. And although it is situated well outside the suburbs of Seattle and Tacoma, it is no stranger to big city problems like addiction.

And despite its small size, it’s on par with the rest of the state in terms of excessive drinking and drug overdose deaths.

But unfortunately, many Buckley residents just don’t know where to find the support they need to overcome their substance abuse problems. And for many, that means that they’re stuck trying to kick an addiction on their own – a recovery plan that rarely ends in sobriety.

This guide to addiction resources in Buckley, WA attempts to fill that need by pointing out some of the best sources of safety, support, and sobriety in the area.

The Dangers of Overdosing

Few countries are facing a health epidemic as dire as the drug overdoses in the United States.

Today more than ever, citizens are more at risk of dying from a drug overdose than most other common causes of death, including certain cancers, automobile accidents, and gun violence.

Here are just a few statistics to provide some perspective on the current epidemic.

  • 130 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose
  • 6 people die each day from alcohol poisoning
  • Around 17 thousand Americans died from a drug overdose in 1999. In 2017, the number of drug casualties was an astounding 70,237 – a 316% increase in less than two decades.
  • Fentanyl, a powerful new opioid, is responsible for a whopping 28,466 of those deaths in 2017.

As you can see, it’s never been more important than now to know the signs of an overdose and what to do to treat it.

Below are some of the most common signs of an overdose for some of the most widely-abused drugs today.

Alcohol – Many people have a few drinks a day without any problem. But others use and abuse this legal yet addictive drug so much that it can cause a deadly case of alcohol poisoning. Here are some of the signs to watch out for:

  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Slow breathing (less than eight breaths a minute)
  • Irregular breathing (a gap of more than 10 seconds between breaths)
  • Blue-tinged skin or pale skin
  • Low body temperature (hypothermia)
  • Passing out (unconsciousness) and can't be awakened

Cocaine – One of the most popular club drugs today, cocaine has had a long and storied history in the world of recreational drug use. And when it’s abused, it can very easily lead to an overdose. Some signs of an overdose on this drug could include:

  • Seizures
  • Loss of awareness of surroundings
  • Loss of urine control
  • High body temperature, severe sweating
  • High blood pressure, very fast heart rate or irregular heart rhythm
  • Bluish color of the skin
  • Fast or difficulty breathing
  • Death

Benzodiazepines – These drugs are commonly used to treat depression and anxiety. But when they’re abused (especially alongside other drugs), they can be incredibly deadly. Signs of a benzo overdose include:  

  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Nystagmus (repetitive, uncontrolled eye movements)
  • Hallucinations
  • Slurred speech
  • Ataxia (lack of muscle coordination)
  • Coma
  • Hypotonia (overly relaxed muscles)
  • Weakness
  • Altered mental status, impairment of thinking
  • Poor memory
  • Shallow breathing
  • Low blood pressure

Crystal Meth – Meth is both highly addictive and highly dangerous. And when this powerful stimulant is abused, it can very easily lead to life-threatening symptoms. Some signs of a meth overdose include:

  • Agitation
  • Chest pain
  • Coma or unresponsiveness (in extreme cases)
  • Heart attack
  • Irregular or stopped heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Very high body temperature
  • Kidney damage and possibly kidney failure
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Stroke

HeroinHeroin is without a doubt one of the most dangerous drugs on the street today, especially since it’s cut with so many unknown substances. The signs of a heroin overdose usually include: 

AIRWAYS AND LUNGS 

  • No breathing
  • Shallow breathing
  • Slow and difficult breathing 

EYES, EARS, NOSE, AND THROAT 

  • Dry mouth
  • Extremely small pupils, sometimes as small as the head of a pin (pinpoint pupils)
  • Discolored tongue 

HEART AND BLOOD 

  • Low blood pressure
  • Weak pulse 

SKIN 

  • Bluish-colored nails and lips 

STOMACH AND INTESTINES 

  • Constipation
  • Spasms of the stomach and intestines 

NERVOUS SYSTEM 

  • Coma
  • Delirium
  • Disorientation
  • Drowsiness
  • Uncontrolled muscle movements

Prescription Opioids – The instigators of the current opioid epidemic, these prescription medications are usually used to treat pain in patients. But when they’re abused, they can be especially deadly. Some signs of an overdose on prescription opioids like OxyContin or Vicodin include:

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
  • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
  • Slow, shallow breathing
  • Choking or gurgling sounds
  • Limp body
  • Pale, blue, or cold skin

Unfortunately, many overdoses need professional treatment in order to ensure the very best outcomes. And while there are a few things you can do to help, the main focus should be getting emergency support as quickly as possible.

As such, if you notice the signs of an overdose above, call 9-1-1 immediately.

If you have to leave the side of the victim, even for a minute, be sure to place them into what’s known as the “recovery position.” This position can help cut down on the likelihood of life-threatening complications like choking or vomiting. And placing the victim in this position doesn’t take more than a few seconds. Plus, it can easily end up saving their life.

The operators at 911 will likely send an ambulance to your location. They’ll also ask you a variety of questions to help get a handle on the situation. These might include:

  • What is the age, sex, height, and weight of the victim?
  • What drugs have they taken, how much did they take, and how long ago did they take them?
  • Did they have a legal prescription for the drugs?
  • Did they take any other substances at the same time?

Honesty and accuracy are key here. Providing the absolute best possible information is the only way that the operator will be able to assess the situation correctly and deliver the right treatment strategies to help save the victim’s life.

As such, do not lie and do not withhold information. Doing so may cause serious problems that might end up being deadly.

The operator will also probably advise you to administer CPR or perform other treatments like inducing vomiting.

When the EMTs arrive, they’ll take over and use treatments and medications like naloxone if the situation calls for it. They’ll also likely transfer the victim to a hospital for more extensive care.

Local Support Groups Near Buckley, Washington

Willpower alone is often not enough to keep a substance abuser from turning back to drugs at some point in their recovery. And in fact, about 3 out of 5 addicts will end up relapsing on their way to recovery.

One of the best possible ways of improving those odds is by enlisting the help of a local support group. These groups not only provide an invaluable social support network but also help substance abusers take stock of their problem and their life as a whole.

And luckily, there are plenty of local support groups near Buckley, WA. Below are some of the best in the area.

First founded in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous is without a doubt one of the most well-known support groups around. And in fact, it’s membership in recent years has actually been estimated to be as high as 2.1 million.

Part of the reason for its popularity is because these groups are so accessible. Meetings are free, membership is open, and groups meet in many cities around the country and the world.

But on top of that, 12-step groups like AA are also proven to help in supporting long-term recovery.

Below are the closest Alcoholics Anonymous meetings around Buckley.

One of the first offshoots of AA, Narcotics Anonymous isn’t quite as popular but it can be just as helpful. This group also follows the 12-step model of recovery. But unlike Alcoholics Anonymous, NA allows addicts of any kind to be a member. That means people with substance abuse problems involving heroin, meth, cocaine, or alcohol are all welcome to attend.

Below are just a few of the closest NA meetings around.

Addiction can be devastating for the individual. But for friends and family members, it can be just as damaging. And unfortunately, these victims of alcoholism rarely get the support they need to stay happy, healthy, and functional.

Al-Anon is a 12-step group devoted to helping these individuals in particular. And for many, it can be a vital force in healing.

There are quite a few Al-Anon groups nearby. Below are the closest.

This 12-step group is an offshoot of Al-Anon devoted specifically to younger people. And given the especially formative years that teenagers are going through, they need support now more than ever.

Similar to the relationship between Al-Anon and AA, Nar-Anon is the family branch of support groups for drug users.

In these groups topics like enabling, interventions, and finding professional help for a loved one are often covered.

Nar-Anon isn’t as popular and widespread as Al-Anon. But there are still a few groups nearby to have a look at.

Alcoholism can cause serious functional problems for children growing up in an addicted home. But unfortunately, those problems don’t just go away as these children grow older. And in fact, many of these individuals struggle later in life with serious difficulties.

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA) is a 12-step group devoted to helping these people in particular heal from their past trauma and go on to lead healthy, functional lives.

Not all support groups are based on the 12-step model. And for the individual that this approach to recovery doesn’t quite work for, there’s SMART Recovery.

SMART Recovery is a non-spiritual and science-based support group that uses only evidence-based techniques and strategies to help members quit their substance abuse.

And while it isn’t as widely available as some 12-step groups, there are still quite a few meetings taking place nearby.

Not everyone has the time, the means of travel, or the desire to attend in-person meetings. And while they’re certainly the most effective means of supporting recovery, there are still alternatives that are much more flexible.

Online groups offer some of the most accessible options for support. These meetings occur in real-time chat rooms, online forums, or via email or video conferencing calls.

Below are some of the best places to look for online groups.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

Support during recovery is critical – that much is clear. But even still, it alone often isn’t enough to keep an addict from turning back to their drug of choice. And though willpower does play a role, even the most resolute of recovering addicts find it nearly impossible to push through the overwhelming cravings and powerful triggers that occur during recovery.

To ensure the absolute best odds of staying sober, then, many addicts will need to employ the help of a professional program.

These treatment programs are designed specifically to give patients the best chances of getting clean. But on top of that, they also empower patients to stay clean using evidence-based treatments, proven techniques, and tested sobriety strategies.

A better rate of recovery is of course the biggest benefit of a professional program. However, there are quite a few other benefits too. These include:

  • Access to proven therapies and even special medications for making recovery easier
  • Various amenities to make the recovery process far more comfortable
  • Connections to aftercare programs to help keep patients sober long after graduating from a program
  • Additional holistic therapies to help patients develop healthier life strategies
  • A strong social support network

There are two main types of programs: detoxification programs and rehabilitation programs.

Detoxification – The very first stage of treatment is often detox. During this phase, patients go through a host of uncomfortable symptoms known as withdrawals. These can include everything from headaches and tremors to seizures and hallucinations. And for many, they can be so problematic that most users tend to turn back to drugs simply to get relief from the symptoms.

A professional program helps keep patients from relapsing during this time while also monitoring their health and their safety. On top of that, they also provide treatments that make these symptoms significantly more manageable.

Rehabilitation – Step two of the treatment process, rehabilitation is more concerned with treating the mental side of addiction. And without it, NIDA points out that most recovering addicts that went through detox alone have the same chances of relapsing as someone not receiving treatment at all.

With one-on-one counseling, group talk sessions, and behavioral therapies, rehabilitation helps patients overcome their compulsive drug seeking behaviors and adopt healthier life strategies they can use forever.

There are three main types of rehab programs.

  • Inpatient Rehab – These programs require patients to receive treatment and live in the same centralized location. They're usually about 30 days long, and they offer the most focused form of recovery since the environment is highly controlled. On the flip side, though, they can make attending work or school impossible at the time.
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation – These programs are usually around 3 months long, and they offer far more flexibility than an inpatient program. Treatment sessions take place in the evenings, allowing patients to fulfill their normal obligations throughout the day. However, with a less focused recovery also comes a higher risk of relapsing.   
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) – These programs provide both flexibility and a higher level of care as well. Treatment sessions happen in the evenings, but these sessions are usually longer, and they also occur more frequently throughout the week.  

Unfortunately, there is only one addiction recovery center in Buckley, Washington. However, choosing to travel for treatment can actually end up being the best recovery decision you can make for a couple of reasons.

  1. It opens up the door to higher quality treatment options.
  2. It allows patients to focus 100% on their own recovery.
  3. A new environment can help break old habits.
  4. It can help solidify the commitment to recovery.
  5. It can be harder to quit a program on a whim.
  6. It offers more privacy and confidentiality.

Our Facility For Addiction Treatment

As you can see, there are so many addiction resources in Buckley to take advantage of. And despite its smaller size, residents here that are struggling with substance abuse have plenty of places to go to keep them safe, supported, and sober.

When it does come time to partner with a professional program, travelling outside of Buckley can be one of the best options. After all, finding the right program is infinitely more important than finding the closest program.

And at Northpoint Recovery in Boise, Idaho, we’re proud to offer some of the highest quality treatment services in the entire Pacific Northwest. Our empirically-based and highly individualized programs for both drug and alcohol addiction provide the best possible path to recovery.

And in fact, we’re one of just a few nationally accredited facilities in the area.

But Northpoint Recovery isn’t right for everyone. And only a call with a qualified addiction expert can help you find out if you’re a good fit.
