Snoqualmie, WA Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery Resources

Drug addicts and alcoholics will often continue to use because they are not aware of the addiction recovery resources available to them in Snoqualmie, Washington. They may know about the existence of 12-Step groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, but they do not have enough information to make the decision to attend. The result is that they either continue to use, or they try to quit on their own, which can be dangerous.

AA and NA can make such a difference in a person’s life. In addition, families need to know where they can get the support they need to heal as well. Al-Anon and Alateen are both available to them.

While we are not affiliated with any of the organizations below, we feel it is important to provide this information. There are ways to recover from an addiction when the desire and determination are there, and many people are standing by to help.

Narcotics Anonymous was founded in the 1950s for those who choose to focus on their recovery from narcotic drugs. Alcoholics Anonymous focuses on recovery from alcoholism and drug addicts sometimes felt excluded from AA due to its singleness of purpose. NA created a space for addicts to open up about their drug use and recovery from addiction.

As a result, thousands of Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held nationwide and worldwide every week. It is the second most popular 12-step Anonymous program behind Alcoholics Anonymous. However, because it is a smaller fellowship, smaller cities do not always have dedicated meetings. There is only one Narcotics Anonymous meetings in Snoqualmie; you’ll have to drive to nearby Issaquah or Bellevue if you want to attend additional NA meetings.

Sometimes full-price addiction treatment is simply not an option for people. Whether you have no insurance, your addiction or alcoholism has made you homeless, or you’re already in heavy debt, some people cannot attend addiction treatment at a normal facility.

Due to this, there are free and low-cost rehabs in Snoqualmie to help those that need treatment but cannot afford it. This gives every addict and alcoholic the chance they deserve to get clean and sober, to discover a new life free of drugs and alcohol.

Snoqualmie Addiction Information

Attending an Al-Anon meeting in Snoqualmie can be a wonderful experience. There are several meetings to choose from.

Alcohol Detox in Snoqualmie

Extensive alcohol use has an incredible impact on the body. Alcoholics or those with an alcohol use disorder put their bodies through incredible amounts of physical stress. Many different internal organs and functions are affected, from the brain to the liver to the kidneys. After alcohol has cemented its place in an individual’s life, they often find it incredibly difficult and dangerous to quit drinking on their own.

After someone has drank heavily for an extended period of time, they will experience withdrawal symptoms once they stop.

When these symptoms are left untreated, alcohol detox can be a potentially deadly process to undergo alone. Because of this, alcohol detoxification centers are an often necessary part of getting sober for many alcoholics.

Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal range from mild to severe, depending on the amount of alcohol consumed and the length of the individual’s drinking career. The most notorious symptom of alcohol withdrawal are the “shakes,” or hand tremors experienced once alcohol has left the drinker’s system. These shakes are quickly solved by pouring another drink. Some chronic drinkers start to see the beginnings of withdrawal symptoms as soon as two hours after their first drink.

Other alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety, irritation, or anger
  • Shaky hands (hand tremors)
  • Headache
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

Some of these symptoms are mild and can be handled at home. However, if you believe your withdrawal symptoms will be more on the severe side, attending an alcohol detox in Snoqualmie will be the safest place for you to get sober.

Delirium tremens, more commonly referred to as DTs by alcoholics, are a more severe form of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. They are experienced by only about 5 percent of individuals withdrawing from alcohol by the signs of DTs can be severe.

Some symptoms of alcohol-induced delirium tremens are:

  • Confusion
  • Racing heart
  • High blood pressure
  • Fever
  • Profuse sweating

The length of time for which alcohol withdrawals last depends on how frequently and how much alcohol was consumed. If you haven’t been drinking very much or for very long, your alcohol withdrawal symptoms will likely not be life-threatening nor last very long.

However, for serious drinkers, the alcohol withdrawal timeline lasts about one week for the physical withdrawal symptoms to subside. The psychological symptoms experienced during alcohol recovery can be comparably damaging, though, and last for a few months after your last drink.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms typically start between 2 to 8 hours after your last drink. Anxiety and insomnia set in, accompanied by nausea and abdominal pain. These symptoms continue throughout the remainder of the alcohol withdrawal timeline.

Heightened blood pressure and an increased body temperature are seen between 1 and 3 days into the alcohol detox. If the user experiences DTs, they will show up between 48 and 72 hours after the final drink. These signs of alcohol detox, including fever, seizures, hallucinations, and overall agitation, can last up to a week.

Medication assisted detox helps recovering alcoholics manage their withdrawal symptoms for a safer detox. Benzodiazepine medications are some of the most effective medications used to treat alcohol withdrawals. They generally interact with the central nervous system, helping to calm most of the severe symptoms experienced during alcohol detox.

Benzodiazepines can be incredibly habit-forming, especially in those pre-disposed to addictive behaviors. Therefore, benzos should be used to detox from alcohol only under the supervision of a doctor. Your doctor can determine the best dosages and provide other suggestions to help you detox from alcohol.

Drug Detox in Snoqualmie, WA

Drug detox facilities in Snoqualmie, Washington help drug users of all types separate from their drug of choice. The drug detox program you select will depend on the types of drugs you used and how long you use them for. Certain detox facilities specialize in specific types of addictions; if this is something you’re interested in, it will be helpful to do some research and make a few calls to potential treatment centers.

Residential detox is the most common type of drug detox. By staying overnight in the detox center, you give medical staff the chance to evaluate you all throughout the withdrawal process.

Drug Detox in Snoqualmie, WA

Inpatient drug detox offers you the safest way to separate from your drug of choice while limiting the severity of your symptoms of drug withdrawal.

The types of drugs you used will determine which withdrawal symptoms you experience during the detox process. Some drug withdrawal symptoms are more dangerous than others. For example, detoxing from opiates like heroin and prescription painkillers is much more complicated than detoxing from even the heaviest marijuana use. Opiates directly affect the body both physically and mentally, helping relieve both anxiety and pain. Therefore, withdrawing from opiates can be an alarmingly painful and overwhelming process.

Methadone

Methadone is another medication used to help those detoxing from opiates and opioids. Similar to Suboxone, it attaches to the opioid receptors in the brain which are responsible for the pleasurable feelings provided by opiates. However, methadone functions by blocking the pleasurable effects of opiates.

It provides pain relieving effects which helps addicts through the early phases of detox when muscle aches are severe. The intensity of opiate withdrawal symptoms leads to addicts fixing them the only way they know how; by getting high. When they use methadone to reduce some of these symptoms, it helps addicts stay away from their drug of choice.

Methadone comes in various forms: pills, liquid, or a wafer placed in the mouth. It is taken once daily and has a relatively short half-life, meaning it is important not to skip any doses. If you miss a dose of methadone, its effects do not last long enough to keep you from getting high the following day.

The drug’s short half-life leads to difficulties with methadone, especially in early recovery. Remembering to take a medication daily, especially when you’re focused on so many other things, can be challenging. For this reason, it is most effective when used as a part of an inpatient addiction treatment regimen. It is easier to remember to take your medication daily when you have a staff member dispersing it to you.

Because of this, methadone is only offered in certified methadone treatment clinics. It is not as widely accessible as other types of opiate recovery medications. Thankfully a wider variety of medications have surfaced over the past decade to help addicts seeking recovery.

Suboxone

Suboxone is a brand name prescription medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone, used to treat those with opioid dependence. It is called a partial opioid agonist, meaning it attaches to the same opioid receptors in the brain that drugs like prescription painkillers and heroin. Suboxone is offered as a strip placed into the mouth, underneath the tongue, which releases the medication.

Unlike methadone, Suboxone was one of the first medications available for use on an outpatient basis. This allows for wider access to medication assisted treatment for those who aren’t located near a certified methadone clinic. You can receive a prescription for buprenorphine medications like Suboxone from your doctor.

Suboxone is helpful in early recovery as its attachment to your opioid receptors tends to decrease cravings for other opiates. Since part of the withdrawal process from opioids and opiates includes severe drug cravings, Suboxone helps with this part of the detox process. It also has mild pain relieving effects which helps reduce the muscle cramps and aches that are a common part of opiate withdrawal.

However, the drug also produces a mild euphoria similar to other opiates. When taken in large doses, it can produce a high much like the drugs it helps people get away from. This is the reason Suboxone is such a controversial drug. There are some who believe those that use it as a part of getting sober are not actually clean. There are even those who choose to set their clean date after they are entirely separated from Suboxone.

Suboxone works best when used in combination with some form of addiction treatment, whether it is inpatient rehab, a partial hospitalization program, or an intensive outpatient program. Using the medication alone only helps to remove some of the temptation to get high. If you do not establish a way to counteract your drug cravings, you will have a difficult time staying sober once you separate from Suboxone.

Alcohol Rehab in Snoqualmie, Washington

Alcohol rehab provides a more long-term follow up to alcohol detox. After removing all of the alcohol from your system, you must replace your old, addictive behaviors with more positive and productive ones. If you do not replace these behaviors, you are almost guaranteed to relapse upon your release from the inpatient detox facility.

Rehab for alcohol abuse helps individuals learn to cope with the overwhelming thought process that proceeds taking a drink. Drinkers drink because they like the effects that alcohol produces. Usually they do no know how to cope with the stressors in life without taking a drink. In order for inpatient alcohol rehab to be effective, they teach you how to manage these stressors in order to live free from the bondage of alcoholism.

Effective alcohol rehab will reintroduce individuals back into the world as functioning members of society. As every alcoholic knows, the pressure to drink exists everywhere, from family gatherings to company parties. Alcohol is everywhere; there is no avoiding it. Instead, you will learn how to handle yourself in everyday situations without having to take a drink.

Just like during detox, medications can be helpful to keep users sober for the long-term. Though benzodiazepines are helpful during the first few weeks of recovery, they are not an effective way to manage alcoholics in recovery. There are alternatives available to these highly addictive medications that still help to keep those in alcohol rehab sober.

Antabuse

Antabuse is a medication used to help those in recovery from alcoholism. The active ingredient in brand name Antabuse is disulfiram which keeps the body from processing alcohol. This means that any time you drink while on the medication, you end up violently sick. Your body is unable to handle alcohol due to the interaction with the Antabuse which means it will reject any alcohol you consume.

It comes in the form of a daily pill taken orally, most often in the morning with food. Antabuse should be taken under the supervision of a doctor. There is no potential for addiction to the medication as it functions only to block your body from processing alcohol; it does not alter your state of mind at all.

Antabuse is not a cure for alcoholism, however. Just because it keeps the body from processing alcohol does not mean that your alcoholism has gone away. It should be used in combination with some form of addiction treatment to help you address the root causes of why you drink. Without developing a way to counter cravings for alcohol, you will most likely drink again as soon as you stop using the medication.

The use of Antabuse was more common in the early 2000s. Today its use has been replaced by newer drugs like naltrexone and Acamprosate. It is still used at certain times depending on the case but doctors usually opt for the use of these newer medications instead.

Acamprosate

Acamprosate is a newer medication used to treat individuals with severe alcohol use disorder. Heavy alcohol use impacts the function of the brain, essentially rewiring regular brain activity and causing it to rely on the use of alcohol to operate “normally.” Acamprosate is used to help rewire the brain back to its regular, normalized state as it was before the introduction of alcohol.

This helps reduce cravings for alcohol in early recovery as well as normalizing brain functioning. It differs from Antabuse in that it does not cause severe physical reactions when you consume alcohol. Studies have shown that the use of Antabuse and Acamprosate together, in combination with addiction treatment or counseling, leads to the best chance of recovery.

Like Antabuse, there is no potential for addiction to Acamprosate. Using greater amounts of the medication does not speed up the recovery process nor does it lead to an altered state of consciousness. It functions only to reduce cravings and rewire the brain’s neurotransmitters into functioning at a normal level again.

Drug Rehab in Snoqualmie

Drug rehab in Snoqualmie, Washington helps recovering addicts learn to live normal lives again. Excessive drug use often leads to the neglect of everyday responsibilities, from personal hygiene to taking on adult responsibilities. The stress of learning how to do these types of things can be overwhelming, especially after it seems like everyone else has already learned to manage them without getting high.

By attending drug rehab, you will learn how to reincorporate into society without having to get high to handle it. You will develop the skills necessary to hold down a job, spend time with your family, and be present for numerous other kinds of social obligations.

Rehab centers provide a safe place for you to develop the coping skills and relapse prevention methods necessary to achieve long-term clean time. By working with a team of medical professionals, counselors, and case managers, you will learn that life is manageable without using drugs. The things that once stressed you out and caused you to use will be easily solvable with a sober mind.

Suboxone and methadone, used during drug detox to help relieve withdrawal symptoms, can also be used in drug rehab. These medications function both as short-term and long-term treatment to help keep opiate users clean. However, naltrexone has gained popularity in recent years as an alternative to these addictive medications. After seeing too many individuals switch from being hooked on heroin to sneaking extra Suboxone, an alternative needed to be introduced.

Naltrexone

Naltrexone is the solution to the need for a daily dose of methadone or Suboxone. Naltrexone is a medication that functions by blocking the effects of opiates and alcohol, offered as a monthly injectable shot. Rather than having to remember to take a pill every day to remove your cravings for and the effects of opiates, you stop by your doctor’s office once per month for your shot.

Naltrexone differs from Suboxone and methadone in that it does not produce any type of euphoric effects. Rather than activating the opioid receptors to reduce cravings, naltrexone blocks the effects of opiates entirely. Because of this, there is no potential for addiction, unlike methadone or Suboxone. Treatment with naltrexone should only begin after you have detoxed completely from all opiates and opioids to avoid any potential complications.

Despite its many benefits, naltrexone has the potential to cause serious complications if an addict tries to get high while actively prescribed the medication. Although it blocks the effects caused by opiates, naltrexone does not stop those drugs from impacting your body. When an addict can’t feel how high they are, they have difficulties gauging how much of a drug they have consumed. Since it blocks the effects of opiates and alcohol, the chances of overdose or alcohol poisoning increase significantly.

Snoqualmie Addiction Information and Resources

Types of Addiction Rehab in Snoqualmie, Washington

Types of Addiction Rehab in Snoqualmie, Washington

After detox, recovering addicts and alcoholics have a few different options for addiction treatment:

  • Inpatient Rehab
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Drug and Alcohol Counseling

The type of addiction treatment option you select depends on how intense of a program you are looking for as well as how much you are able to spend. Programs that offer more intensive treatment cost more, but they also provide additional structure and support.

The range of treatment types gives anyone the chance to attend addiction treatment, regardless of the prior obligations they have. Each option varies in intensity while still offering the same high level of attention to and care for addicts and alcoholics seeking sobriety.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab provides programming during the day and requires you to stay in the facility overnight. These treatment centers generally offer 30-, 60-, and 90-day programs. The length of treatment usually depends on the results of an initial assessment as well as how much programming your insurance will cover.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab in Snoqualmie is the most intensive form of addiction treatment available. During the day, you will attend numerous groups that aim to help you understand at a deeper level why you use drugs and alcohol. You will attend both individual and group therapy sessions, educational groups, and oftentimes 12-step meetings.

Many drug and alcohol rehab facilities take their clients on outings to various surrounding locations for a number of activities. You will build relationships with people in your program who have the same goal as you: staying clean and sober. Early recovery is easier when you have a tight-knit group trudging the same path as you are.

Inpatient rehab is helpful for those who need to remove themselves from their regular everyday environment in order to get sober. By removing the temptations to drink and use, you can focus solely on building a solid foundation for your recovery. Outside distractions are removed which gives you time to focus on yourself and getting better.

Inpatient rehab near Snoqualmie, WA is usually the most expensive option for addiction treatment. Because of the residential nature of the program, it costs more for the facility to run. However, this intensive level of treatment helps keep you occupied and focused on your recovery. You will lay the groundwork for a strong recovery program through learning to manage triggers and work through difficult times without needing drugs or alcohol to cope.

A Partial Hospitalization Program (more often referred to in the world of addiction treatment as PHP), is another form of intensive addiction treatment. The main difference between PHP and inpatient rehab is that PHP does not require you to stay overnight in the facility. Programming takes place during the day for a minimum of 5 hours, often the same amount of treatment provided in an inpatient rehab.

PHP offers similar treatment to that provided in an inpatient rehab facility: individual and group therapy sessions allow you to process through feelings about early recovery. Groups focus on helping you understand what drives your behavior and why you choose to use drugs and alcohol despite the consequences that come with them. Outside activities are also a common tool used in partial hospitalization programs.

Programming for PHP helps addicts and alcoholics learn more about their addiction. You work through traumatic events in your past that contributed to the start of you using drugs and alcohol. By processing these events, treatment aims to help remove things which once triggered you to use. They also hope to help you rebuild relationships that you impaired or destroyed through your drinking and drug use.

While there is no requirement to stay overnight, those in a Partial Hospitalization Program usually reside in a sober living or some other type of recovery-focused environment. PHP and sober living work hand-in-hand to help you establish a solid baseline for your sobriety before heading back into the world.

PHP is usually a more affordable option than a fully integrated inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. The lack of residential arrangements means you can opt either to stay in a sober living or to return home at the end of the day. Some treatment programs organize a residential sober living situation for you while others handle only the treatment portion and leave your living arrangements up to you.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are most often used as a follow-up to inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program. IOP, like PHP, offers treatment on an outpatient basis. There are fewer hours of sessions during the day as it is used more for maintenance than initial addiction treatment. 

Some inpatient rehab and PHP facilities utilize IOP as a continued treatment program at their facility. As you move through treatment, you “graduate” from intensive treatment to less day programming. The fewer hours of programming give you the ability to integrate back into society by having a wider availability to get a job. 

IOP is also available as a standalone option for those who do not have open availability to dedicate to treatment. People with full-time jobs, who are in school, or are stay-at-home parents may not have the option to attend inpatient rehab or PHP in Snoqualmie. IOP gives these individuals the chance to attend addiction treatment without having to extract themselves from their busy lives. 

When used as a standalone treatment option, IOP is the most affordable type of intensive addiction treatment available. There is no residential requirement and treatment takes place for a few hours a day, keeping costs lower than inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program. If you have limited funds but would still benefit from attending addiction treatment, IOP will be the most realistic choice for you.

Drug and alcohol counseling is mainly offered as a long-term maintenance program for those who have already attended inpatient rehab, a partial hospitalization program, or an intensive outpatient program in Snoqualmie, Washington. Counseling is not the best option for those just getting sober. Instead, it works better for those who have already laid a foundation in early recovery and want to continue working closely with a therapist to help them through deep-rooted issues that affect their sobriety.

If you attend drug and alcohol counseling in Snoqualmie, you usually meet with a counselor for an hour or two per week. You will continue working through issues initially discussed in a more intensive level of addiction treatment. Developing a close relationship with your counselor also helps you process day-to-day occurrences that challenge your sobriety without having to get drunk or high.
