Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)

The original 12-step program, Alcoholics Anonymous began all the way back in 1935. And since then, it’s grown to become one of the largest, most recognizable support groups in the entire world.

Part of it has to do with just how accessible AA really is. Meetings are free to attend, open to all, and are widely available all over the country. And in the Newport Hills area, there are plenty happening every single day.

Al-Anon for Friends & Family

Alcoholism isn’t just detrimental to the addict themselves. It can also destroy relationships with family members, friends, and even associates. And for them, there’s another 12-step support group to help keep them happy, healthy, and safe.

It’s called Al-Anon. And it can be a vital source of healing for anyone hurt by another person’s alcoholism.

Alateen for Youths

The youth version of Al-Anon, Alateen helps connect younger victims of another person’s over-drinking.

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA)

Many people who grow up in an alcoholic home have lingering problems that persist well into adulthood. For these individuals, there’s Adult Children of Alcoholics, or ACoA. It’s a free 12-step program that’s open to all.

SMART Recovery: A 12-Step Alternative

12-step groups aren’t the only ones that offer its members support in overcoming addiction. In fact, there are plenty of other alternatives to look into. SMART Recovery is without a doubt one of the most popular.

This support group takes more of a non-spiritual approach to recovery while still providing actionable strategies and techniques for maintaining sobriety.

Online Support Groups

Despite just how many local support groups there are nearby, not everyone will be able to make it to these in-person meetings. Maybe they don’t quite mesh with their schedule. Or maybe they just can’t seem to find a ride.

No matter what the problem is, there are still other places to go for support. And online support groups are some of the most flexible options.

These support groups may take place over email, in real-time chat rooms, or even through online video calls. It depends entirely on the specific group.

But in the end, if you have an internet connection and a smart device/computer, you can still get support no matter where you’re at:

How to Help an Overdose Victim in Newport hills

Addiction can impact so many aspects of a person’s life. It can destroy personal relationships, ravage their finances, and sabotage their careers. But one of the most destructive effects of addiction is the risk of overdose.

Overdoses can have lifelong repercussions including permanent brain damage or organ failure. And on top of that, they can and often do result in death.

And in the United States, overdoses have become so problematic and widespread that they’re now the number one killer of individuals under the age of 50.

In 2017 alone, more than 72,000 Americans died from a drug overdose.

And the problem is getting worse and worse with each passing year.

It’s critical, then, that you know how to spot the signs of an overdose and how to help treat it effectively. Because today, you’re more likely than ever to encounter one.

Identifying an overdose isn’t quite as easy as many people think. Part of the problem is that the symptoms are so varied between different drug types. That’s why it’s so important to know the signs of each.

Below are some of the most notable signs of an overdose for the most commonly abused drugs today:

Prescription Opioids – One of the main drivers of the current opioid epidemic, prescription painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin are widely abused and highly addictive. They can also be quite deadly. Below are some of the most notable signs of an overdose.

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

Cocaine – A popular club drug and one of the most widely-known drugs to date, the signs of an overdose on this cocaine 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

Alcohol: Alcohol is legal, sure, but it can also be quite deadly when abused. Here are some of the signs of alcohol poisoning 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

Crystal Meth – Highly addictive, especially potent, and quite terrifying, crystal meth is also incredibly dangerous. 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

Benzodiazepines – These prescription drugs are usually used to treat mood disorders like depression or anxiety. But today, they’ve become more popular among recreational drug users than ever. An overdose on benzos may include symptoms like:

  • 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

HeroinHeroin is without a doubt one of the most notorious street drugs today. And 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

The first thing to do after identifying an overdose is to call 911 immediately. If you must leave the victim alone to do so, place them into the recovery position. This position will reduce the risk of deadly complications.

The 911 operators may ask you questions to assess the situation, such as:

  • What is the victim’s condition?
  • What is their age, weight, height, sex, and history with substance abuse?
  • Which drugs are in their system?
  • How much did they take?
  • Are they prescribed to these drugs?

Answer these questions as honestly and accurately as possible to ensure the victim’s safety.

Once the ambulance arrives, the EMTs will take over. They may administer overdose-revering drugs like naloxone.

The key is to contact help quickly and to provide the most accurate information possible.

Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs Near Newport Hills

The Bellevue area is home to several fantastic drug detox programs. If you’re looking to get sober, these are great resources for you. These facilities will help you get all of the drugs or alcohol out of your system.

When a person drinks heavily or abuses drugs for a long time, their body becomes dependent on that substance. It becomes hard for them to quit. When they do try to stop using, they typically go into withdrawal. Drug and alcohol withdrawals are notoriously unpleasant.

Typically, addicts experience a number of withdrawal symptoms when they cease use. Sometimes, these are mild symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Other times, withdrawal symptoms are more severe. In extreme cases, withdrawal can be fatal.

So, it’s important that addicts seek professional help before trying to quit drugs. By checking into an addiction treatment facility, they’ll have access to doctors who ensure their comfort and safety throughout the process.

Ready to get sober? Learn about the Medical Detox program at Northpoint Evergreen!

Medical detox is the process of withdrawing under a doctor’s supervision. This is the withdrawal method recommended by most addiction specialists.

There are several benefits to medical detox, including:

Informed care

Quitting cold turkey isn’t always a good approach. Addicts may need to wean off their drug of choice slowly. Doctors will create a course of action for detoxing in the safest possible manner.

Access to medication

Some addicts benefit from taking anti-addiction medications like Vivitrol. In a professional detox program, a doctor will assess your situation and determine whether these medications might help you through the withdrawal process.

Relapse prevention

One of the hardest parts about withdrawals is making it through without relapsing. After all, it’s easy to reach out for a fix when symptoms get tough. In a professional detox facility, however, you’ll have no access to drugs or alcohol, which makes it easier to keep going.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Programs Near Newport Hills

Bellevue is also home to a number of drug and alcohol rehab programs. These programs help addicts transition back into a sober lifestyle. Through therapy, counseling, and other resources, they give recovering addicts the tools to thrive in sobriety.

Some people believe that all you need to get sober is to quit using. But that’s not the case. In order to stay sober, you have to learn how to fight cravings and cope with stress in a healthy way. Rehab can teach you how to do these things.

Check out these drug rehab success rates for further information. While rehab doesn’t work for everyone, it helps many people achieve the sobriety they’re seeking.

There are a few different types of drug rehab programs near Newport Hills. Each type is designed for different clients with different needs and lifestyles.

There are inpatient rehab programs, for example, which are live-in facilities. Almost like sleep away camps, they house addicts who are working through recovery. Patients spend their days in one-on-one therapy sessions and group support meetings. At night, they relax, read, and converse with other recovering addicts.

There are also outpatient and intensive outpatient rehab programs (IOPs). These are non-residential programs. Instead of living in the facility, patients live at home but attend individual and group therapy sessions during the day. Then, they’re free to leave for school, work, or to spend time with family.

Outpatient rehab works best for parents, students, and professionals who can’t leave their responsibilities behind to seek treatment. However, it’s up to the patient to avoid the temptation to relapse while off-campus.
