Considered a major thoroughfare that connects north and south Seattle, Broadway street is widely used by drug traffickers to transport, and users to obtain their products. Crime tends to be prevalent in the Broadway neighborhood, as the street attracts more unsavoury individuals.
For residents suffering from substance use disorder (drug or alcohol addiction), the issue can be confront by reaching out to one of the many free recovery resources in and around Broadway.
Drug and alcohol addiction can be difficult to beat without professional help. An effective alcohol and drug rehab program can help substance abusers withdraw more comfortably. Medical detox services ease withdrawal symptoms, and behavioral therapies and counselling help addicts deal with underlying issues.
Choosing the right rehab program is easier than it sounds. There are so many options to choose from. Members need to figure out the type of addiction treatment program that will best benefit their needs and expectations. This includes considering the staff-to-client ratio and looking into the specialisations of each clinic. Another important thing to consider is the level of care that’s provided. There are two main options to choose from:
There are over 15 drug and alcohol rehab centers in and around Broadway. Some of these offer inpatient care and some of these offer outpatient care.
As an addict progresses through recovery, he or she may have an increasingly difficult time trying to abstain from drugs and alcohol. Getting enough peer support can increase one’s chances of addiction recovery. Most addiction experts recommend going to at least one recovery meeting or mutual support group a week. There are many different types of meetings to choose from.
Strengthen your commitment to sobriety by attending Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings. This is a fellowship for both men and women who struggle with alcohol abuse. The main goal of this mutual support group is to help recovering alcoholics abstain from drinking. Members go to these meetings to get extra support from other people who are in the same situation.
AA meetings are faith-based. They require members to put their faith in a power greater than themselves. These meetings teach twelve steps and philosophies that help members stay sober.

Drug addiction can be difficult to go at alone. Cravings can pop up from time to time, and many recovering drug users find themselves thinking about the joys of drug use years after quitting. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a mutual support group for recovering drug users. It doesn’t matter where they are in their recovery. Some members may have years under their belt while others may only be sober for several weeks.
NA meetings follow the 12-step philosophies, like with AA. Members learn how to put their faith in recovery in a higher being and how to make a personal inventory of their shortcomings. These meetings help members become more self-aware of their own actions and behaviors.

It’s easy for loved ones of the alcoholics to get sucked into the alcoholism as well. They may spend a disproportionate amount of time trying to help the alcoholic get their feet back on the ground. This may cause them to sacrifice their own freedom and future. Family and friends often need just as much support in dealing with alcohol addiction. This is where Al-Anon comes in. These recovery meetings help loved ones learn more about alcohol addiction. They also help them learn how to approach the alcoholic about recovery and how to help avoid having a codependent relationship.
Al-Anon meetings are faith-based. They are also a type of 12-step treatment, so members will learn how to master the same twelve steps that are explored in AA and NA.

Those who are between the ages of 8 and 21 and have to deal with an alcoholic will benefit from going to Alateen meetings. This 12-step program is designed for younger age groups. The topics that are discussed tend to be more relevant to these members, but the philosophies and twelve steps taught in these meetings are the same as those that are taught in Al-Anon.
Alateen meetings offer a more intimate environment for teens to talk about what they’re going through. Often times, these individuals will have to grow up quickly. They’re also under a lot more stress than their peers.
