Carnation Addiction Resources

This page with drug and alcohol rehab resources in Carnation, WA points out some of the best sources of support in the area – from overdose help and local support groups to professional addiction treatment programs.

Located east of Seattle in King County, Carnation is a small Washington community with around 2100 residents in 2017.

Its name was actually chosen to honor a nearby research farm run by the Carnation Milk Products Company.

And while it’s small-town charm may lead some to think that it’s a perfectly idyllic community, the truth is that like the rest of Washington, Carnation has a problem with addiction.

Unfortunately, many residents just don’t know where to go to find help.

The Dangers of Overdosing

While addiction can impact nearly every aspect of an individual’s life, the dangers to health can be some of the most destructive. And no risk is more devastating than that of experiencing an overdose.

Overdoses can cause permanent damage that can lead to a life of disability and pain. But on top of that, overdoses are also incredibly deadly. In just 2017 alone, they killed more than 70 thousand Americans. That’s up from just 17 thousand in 1999.

And today, more Americans under 55 are dying from overdoses than any other cause.

It’s so important, then, to know how to both spot the signs of an overdose and learn how to treat them.

Different types of drugs have different overdose symptoms. And that can make it harder to spot the obvious signs.

Below are some of the most notable overdose symptoms for some of the most commonly abused drugs today.

Cocaine – One of the most well-known illicit drugs today, cocaine has long been used and abused. But it’s popularity is matched by its dangers too, and taking too much can easily become deadly. 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

HeroinWithout a doubt one of the most notorious drugs on the street today, heroin is at the forefront of the raging opioid epidemic. And when used, it can quickly and easily lead to an overdose. 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 – These drugs are usually prescribed to treat pain in patients. But medications like OxyContin and Percocet can be addictive as well as 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

Alcohol – Legal, widely available, and culturally ingrained in much of current society, alcohol is abused more than most other addictive drugs. But alcohol poisoning can also be deadly. 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

Benzodiazepines – Some of the most well-known benzos are Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin. And while they do have legitimate medical use, these medications are becoming more highly abused with each passing year. Some of the most recognizable 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 – A powerful stimulant that’s also highly addictive, meth can cause serious side effects like paranoia, hallucinations, and even mania. It can also be quite deadly too. 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

Treating an overdose effectively takes medical expertise. And as a result, the absolute best thing you can do when you spot the signs above is to call 9-1-1 immediately.

If you have to leave the side of the victim though, be sure to place them in the recovery position to cut down on complications, some of which may be life-threatening.

When you reach an operator, they’ll most likely send an ambulance to your location while also asking you a number of questions to assess the situation. These questions 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?

The key here is to be completely honest and as accurate as possible. Do not lie about using illicit drugs. Do not fail to mention the fact that they mixed drugs with alcohol. The better your information is, the more they’ll be able to help.

The operator may also ask you to begin administering CPR or performing other actions like inducing vomiting. Once the EMT’s arrive, they’ll be able to take over and provide more comprehensive care. They may even use special medications like naloxone to help reverse the overdose.

Local Support Groups Near Carnation, Washington

Though willpower can go a long way in helping individuals overcome their addictions, it certainly isn’t the only factor involved. There’s also an incredible amount of support needed to help keep users clean and sober in the long-term.

In fact, the overwhelming majority of recovering addicts that try quitting without a dedicated support network end up relapsing soon after.

However, many people just don’t know where to look for the support they need. But in Carnation, there are quite a few local support groups taking place in and around this small Washington community.

Below are some of the best to take a look at.

First founded in Akron, Ohio in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was the very first 12-step program. This model of recovery and support has been so effective, it’s even spawned a number of offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Underearners Anonymous, and more.

Part of its success is due to the fact that the 12-step approach is proven by hard science to be effective in supporting sobriety. NIDA even endorses it.

But on top of that, these meetings are also highly accessible and widely available across the country – and the world.

And around Carnation, there are a number of meetings taking place nearby almost every single day.

While not as big and well-known as its parent group AA, Narcotics Anonymous is still incredibly popular today. It’s active in 139 countries and holds nearly 67 thousand different meetings all over the globe.

And while it has similar principles to Alcoholics Anonymous (anonymity, free membership, the 12 steps), there is one major defining difference – NA accepts individuals addicted to any substance, not just alcohol.

And around Carnation, there are quite a few NA meetings taking place.

Addicts themselves aren’t the only ones hurt by an addiction. And in many cases, it’s actually the close friends and family members of addicts that end up suffering without getting the support they need.

Al-Anon is a 12-step group that focuses on empowering and helping these individuals in particular. And although it isn’t as easy to find a meeting as other 12-step groups, there are still quite a few meetings taking place nearby.

Below are some of the closest.

This 12-step group is similar to Al-Anon. But rather than letting anyone join meetings, Alateen groups are actually restricted to certain younger age ranges.

This stipulation makes it so that young people who have been hurt by an alcoholic feel as comfortable as possible opening up about their experiences. And with young people in particular, that can be hard to do in a room full of adults.

Below are some Alateen meetings taking place around Carnation.

Just as Al-Anon is a family group for alcoholism, Nar-Anon supports those who have been hurt by another person’s addiction – no matter the substance of abuse. And also like Al-Anon, it’s built on the 12-step model too.

Some popular topics discussed in these meetings might include enabling, interventions, and knowing how to find the right kind of professional help.

Many times, growing up in an alcoholic home can cause a host of problems that persist long into adulthood. And for some, coping with and overcoming those problems alone can be an insurmountable task.

With Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA) individuals from this same type of traumatic background can get together, share experiences, offer support, and begin to heal.

There are quite a few ACoA meetings happening in the area, though none in Carnation specifically. Below are the closest ones.

The 12-step approach isn’t the only path to sobriety. And in fact, some people find that this approach just doesn’t match what they believe recovery should be. And for them, a 12-step alternative may end up being the best option.

SMART Recovery is one of the most well-known and effective 12-step alternatives around. If features science-based techniques and strategies for helping members resist cravings and stay sober. Plus, it’s also a non-spiritual group.

There are quite a few SMART Recovery meetings taking place nearby.

Whether it’s a busy schedule, a lack of transportation, or just a fear of embarrassment, there are plenty of reasons why some people don’t end up attending the in-person meetings above.

Luckily, there are also online support groups that offer more flexibility and anonymity. While these groups alone often aren’t enough to kick an addiction entirely, they can be a valuable source of support for individuals who may not receive it otherwise.

Below are some great places to get started.

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

Support groups can be such an integral part of any recovery plan. But unfortunately, they alone aren’t usually enough to help an addict overcome their substance abuse problem. And for the overwhelming majority of addicts, it’ll take a professional treatment program to kick their addiction for good.

Professional programs use evidence-based therapies, treatments, and strategies to give patients the absolute best chances of getting and staying clean.

  • Having 24/7 nursing care in case of an emergency or deadly complication
  • Taking some time away from the stress of your everyday life to focus on your recovery
  • Having the time to learn more about your addiction
  • Support groups that will help you understand how others are working through recovery
  • Learning alternate coping skills to help you avoid relapsing
  • Guidance for dealing with long-term side effects like depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders

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

Detoxification – This is usually the first stage of the recovery process and it can often be the most physically taxing. Once an addict gives up using their addictive substance, their body is launched into a series of uncomfortable side effects called withdrawals. These withdrawals can include:

  • Headaches
  • Tremors
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Vomiting
  • Cold Sweats
  • Diarrhea
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations

And for many, the effects are so overwhelming that most recovering addicts actually turn back to using just to find relief.

A professional detoxification program helps keep patients from relapsing during moments of weakness. But it can also make detoxing much more comfortable and far safer than trying to get clean alone.

Rehabilitation – Rehab is the second phase of treatment. And while detox was concerned with the body side of addiction, rehabilitation is more focused on the mental side of it. With one-on-one counseling, group talk sessions, and behavioral therapies, these programs help eliminate the compulsive drug-seeking behaviors that characterize addiction.

There are three main types of rehab programs too.

  • Inpatient Rehab – Typically about 30 days in length, inpatient rehab requires patients to stay on campus grounds at all times. That means eating, sleeping, and treatment sessions all take place in the same centralized location. And while it allows for a more focused recovery, it can be quite disruptive to normal daily life.
  • Outpatient Rehabilitation – An outpatient program (usually 3 months long) is quite a bit more flexible. Rather than holding treatment sessions during the day, they occur in the evenings instead. This allows for patients to fulfill normal daily obligations while still getting the support they need to recover.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) – An IOP offers a higher level of care along with quite a bit of flexibility. Treatment sessions happen in the evenings still but are usually longer and occur more frequently.   

Unfortunately, there aren’t any addiction treatment centers within Carnation itself. And that means that anyone looking for a professional treatment program will end up needing to travel for professional support.

But doing so isn’t all bad. And in fact, there are plenty of benefits to choosing to travel for treatment that many people don’t end up considering.

In the first place, it can open up the door to a higher level of quality treatment. Not all facilities use the same therapies or recovery models. And when patients have more options to choose from, they can decide which ones work specifically for them. This, of course, can lead to a much higher success rate.

But on top of that, there are quite a few other benefits of travelling for treatment too. Below are some of the most notable.

  • It can solidify the commitment to recovery
  • Patients can focus entirely on their own journey to sobriety
  • Travel offers time for reflection
  • It can make it harder to quit a program on a whim
  • There are more privacy and confidentiality
