Kirkland, WA: NA, AA and Al-Anon Meetings

Nearly 400 King County residents died from drugs or alcohol in 2017 and the problem is only getting worse...

Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are strong communities in Kirkland and other Washington cities.

Looking at local overdose rates, it’s clear just how important these organizations are.

In the year 2000, the addiction problem was so bad in King County that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a report on it. Drug overdose and alcohol poisoning deaths were so high around that time that the government found it to be something of note. At the time of that report, roughly 140 people were dying from unintentional drug overdoses each year.

Today, however, the problem is much worse. By 2017, that number grew to be 379. Nearly 400 King County residents overdosed on drugs and alcohol last year.

Drug Abuse and Alcoholism Stats

Research published by the King County Department of Public Health tells us the following:

  • Methamphetamine is a big problem here. Over the past 10 years, meth-related deaths have increased from 18 to 136.
  • More young people are dying from overdoses than anyone else. Half of the people who died from an accidental overdose were younger than 46 years of age.
  • Prescription drug abuse is a problem, as well. The Department reports that most of these overdoses involved a mixture of opioids with other drugs.

It’s time we start bringing these numbers down. We believe that addicts should get the treatment and support they need. We’ve compiled a list of NA and AA meetings in Kirkland to help them get started.

Alcoholics Anonymous: Helping Kirkland Residents Overcome Alcohol Abuse

Washington State is currently facing a crisis. Many of our residents are suffering from alcohol abuse disorder. They’re drinking too much. They’re dying from alcohol poisoning. And they’re powerless over their addictions to booze.

Washington State is currently facing a crisis. Many of our residents are suffering from alcohol abuse disorder. They’re drinking too much. They’re dying from alcohol poisoning. And they’re powerless over their addictions to booze.

Here’s a closer look at alcoholism in WA and Kirkland:

  • Our state consistently has one of the highest drinking rates. In 2015, we ranked 14th on the list of drunkest states. The research estimated that our residents had around 57 drinks each month.
  • Kirkland, specifically, has a bad alcohol problem. The 2016 King County City Health Profile shows that 22% of city residents consume alcohol excessively. This is far higher than the average for Washington State.
  • Drunk driving seems to be a growing problem. From 2003 to 2012, nearly 2,000 Washington residents died in an alcohol-related car accident.
  • Washington residents are far more likely to die in a drunk driving accident than in other states.

Fortunately, there are a number of resources in the area that can help. If more addicts start utilizing these resources, we may see some happier stats in the future.

AA is the Support Network You Need

There are a few key steps to getting sober. You need to detox. You need to get the alcohol out of your system and work hard to keep it out. But you also need to find people that can help you stay sober.

12-step meetings are designed to help you find those people. We believe that the Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in Kirkland are some of the best resources for any addict living in the area.

At these meetings, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and speak with other people who are going through the same things you are. Some of them are newly sober just like you. Others have been sober for years and just want to see other alcoholics get clean.

“I listened to their stories and found so many areas where we overlapped—not all the deeds, but the feelings of remorse and hopelessness. I learned that alcoholism isn’t a sin, it’s a disease.” - Alcoholics Anonymous, The Big Book

These individuals meet regularly in cities all over the world. They gather in church basements, restaurants and community centers to offer each other support. They help one another to realize that living a sober life is possible.

No one should go through the process alone. There are people out there who want to help you.

Are you an alcoholic or just a casual drinker? Take one of our free online quizzes to get a clear answer:

Am I a Functional Alcoholic?

Am I Addicted to Alcohol?

Is My Family Member an Alcoholic?

Note: Some meetings are marked as “closed”. This means that only committed AA members can attend. First-timers are not usually allowed into these meetings. However, if you show that you’re committed to getting clean, the group will be happy to have you.

Each meeting is different. Some meetings are small and intimate with people sitting in a circle. Others are large, lively events that occupy entire cafeterias. Some meetings are a bit subdued and emotional while others are joyous and filled with laughter.

Whatever the environment, you’ll find that all AA meetings in Kirkland are warm and welcoming. The members of Alcoholics Anonymous just want to see people turn their lives around.

“By keeping alcohol out of their systems, newcomers take care of one part of their illness—their bodies have a chance to get well…If they are going to stay sober, they need healthy minds and healthy emotions, too.” - Alcoholics Anonymous, A Brief Guide to AA

The organization is founded around the idea of empathy and compassion. So, no one needs to worry about feeling judged at a meeting. Everyone in attendance is there because they’ve made poor choices while drunk and they want a second chance at life.

As the organization says in their Brief Guide to Alcoholics Anonymous, “Through the example and friendship of the recovered alcoholics in AA, new members are encouraged to stay away from a drink ‘one day at a time’.”

Narcotics Anonymous Meetings in or around the Kirkland area

Whereas Alcoholics Anonymous was developed to help alcoholics get sober, Narcotics Anonymous does the same for drug addicts. People who feel like they’ve lost power over their drug habit are invited to join the group for support. Similar to AA, this organization is built around a 12-step program. These meetings are free as well.

As the group’s name suggests, it caters specifically to narcotics addicts. Anyone who is addicted to mind-altering substances is welcome to join. This means that people who use heroin, prescription opioids, cocaine, meth or any other drug can benefit from these meetings. There are even marijuana addicts who attend meetings.

“After coming to NA we realized we were sick people. We suffered from a disease from which there is no known cure. It can, however, be arrested at some point and recovery is then possible.” - Narcotics Anonymous, The NA White Booklet

The NA community in Kirkland is a tight-knit network of support for local addicts. These individuals hold meetings in the area every night of the week. You’re welcomed to join as many or as few meetings as you like. Help is always there.

“I continued going to local Narcotics Anonymous because the people inside those walls know exactly what I have gone through—and there’s no judgment. Whenever I am feeling tempted, I can draw strength and inspiration from my fellow addicts in recovery.” - Andrew, Vicodin addict and Northpoint Alumni

What to Do in Case of an Overdose

If you or someone else overdose, get help as soon as possible. Most overdose victims die because they don’t receive treatment fast enough. By calling for help or heading to the ER, you can prevent the problem from getting worse.

When the person is unconscious or not responding, call 911.

If the individual is mobile, bring them to the ER. There are several hospitals in Kirkland that treat drug overdoses and alcohol poisoning.

Support for Families: Kirkland Al-Anon Meetings

Addiction affects far more people than the addicts themselves. There are millions of parents, children, siblings, and friends living in America whose lives have been severely impacted by someone else’s addiction.

Oftentimes, these people need support too. They need to meet other individuals who are in the same situation.

Al-Anon was created for this very purpose. This program provides a place for people to gather and discuss how their life has been chances by someone else’s habit. The group shares their stories, discusses their progress and strives to help one another cope with the problem. Some attendees have lost their loved ones to addiction. Others are afraid of losing them.

“Inner peace comes from accepting yourself and what’s happening as it is right now without trying to control or change it.” - Al-Anon

At the heart of this program is a desire to let go of certain feelings. The guilt, shame, and helplessness that come with addiction are all emotions that the group strives to overcome.

It’s difficult, but those who go to meetings in Kirkland find that the program helps them to find peace. They accept the things they can’t change and turn their focus toward being the best person they can be.

AA and NA: Saving Lives in Washington State

We understand that getting clean is difficult. It’s the biggest challenge any addict encounters in their life. That’s why we want to help. Please give us a call. There’s still a chance for you to get back on the right path.
