University District, Seattle, Washington Overdose, Support, & Treatment Addiction Resources

The University District in Seattle, WA is home to the University of Washington. It’s located in northern Seattle across Portage Bay and is home to museums, art galleries, and so much more.

However, like other areas of Seattle, this part of the city is struggling with a serious alcohol and substance abuse problem.

And within the University District itself, there aren’t really any addiction treatment centers to choose from. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of other addiction resources nearby.

The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute, for example, is a multidisciplinary research center located at the University of Washington. And it has tons of information on its website including community outreach opportunities and other valuable links.

This guide takes a deeper dive into some of the other addiction resources in the University District. We look at overdose help, local support groups, and professional treatment programs to help keep recovering addicts safe, supported, and sober.

The Dangers of Overdosing

One of the biggest hazards of a substance abuse problem is the risk of an overdose. The body can only take so much of an addictive substance at once. And if too much is taken at once, it can cause irreparable harm, permanent organ damage, and even death.

While overdoses were always a problem, today’s death toll from too much drugs or alcohol is significantly worse than it’s ever been. In 1999, just 16,849 people died from a drug overdose. In 2017, that number was 72,237 – a 316% increase in less than two decades.

Drug overdoses are now the number one killer for Americans under the age of 50.

Part of the problem is the rise of potent and deadly opioids like fentanyl. But don’t be fooled – overdoses involving nearly every other drug category are also on the rise.

It’s never been more important, then, to know how to recognize the signs of an overdose. Because the quicker you do, the faster you can get the lifesaving help needed.

The first step to helping an overdose victim is to actually identify the signs of an overdose. And this can be harder than many people think. That’s because not all drugs have the same overdose symptoms.

Below are some of the most common symptoms for some of the most widely abused substances today.

Prescription Opioids – Most commonly used for patients experiencing pain, prescription opioids are also highly addictive and dangerous. 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

Cocaine – A popular party drug used in clubs, bars, and raves, using cocaine even once can easily lead to an overdose. Some signs of an overdose on coke may 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 – Highly abused and socially normalized, drinking alcohol in excess can be quite dangerous. 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 – Crystal meth is incredibly addictive and especially damaging to the body. This makes overdosing on meth particularly damaging 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

Benzodiazepines – Also called benzos, these drugs are usually used to treat mood disorders like depression and anxiety. But they’ve also become one of the most commonly abused prescription medications today. And overdosing on them can be quite deadly. Here are some benzo overdose signs to watch out for.

  • 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

HeroinWithout a doubt one of the most notorious illicit drugs, heroin use is becoming more common and deadlier year over year. 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

After you’ve spotted the signs of a drug overdose, the very next step should be to contact emergency services right away by calling 9-1-1 immediately. The professionals on the other end of the line will:

  1. Instruct you how to help the victim
  2. Send an ambulance to your location

If you do have to leave the side of the victim – even for just a minute – be sure to place the victim into what’s known as the “recovery position.” This position helps cut down on a number of complications that can in fact be deadly. Plus, it only takes a few seconds to do.

The operators at 911 may also ask you to provide a range of information about the victim. This might include:

  • Their age, sex, height, weight
  • What drugs the victim took and whether they had a legitimate prescription
  • What the condition of the victim is right now
  • Whether they have a history of substance abuse

It’s critical to be 100% honest and accurate about the information you provide. Operators are only able to help when they have all the facts. And lying about the type of drug, how much was taken, or any other info can make matters much worse – even deadly.

They may also advise you to administer CPR or perform a range of other actions like inducing vomiting. It’s important to follow their instructions as closely as possible.

When the ambulance arrives, the emergency service workers will take over treatment and may even provide overdose-reversing medications like naloxone. They will also likely transfer the victim to a hospital for more comprehensive care.

University District, WA Treatment Options for Addiction and Alcoholism

Local Support Groups Near University District, Washington

Staying sober is hard when you’re an addict. And no matter how strong, how determined, and how independent someone thinks they are, they’re going to need support throughout their recovery.

And while the connections with friends and family are invaluable, many addicts also find the emotional and motivational backing they need from support groups. These groups connect recovering addicts with others going through a similar situation. They can build friendships and accountability partners that last a lifetime. And they can even help addicts learn more about their own struggles with addictive substances.

Luckily, the University District and Seattle at large have so many different options when it comes to local support groups. Below are just some of the most notable to have a look at.

Started in 1935, Alcoholics Anonymous was the original 12-step group that led to the countless offshoots of today. It uses the 12 steps as a means of helping recovering alcoholics to live a life of honesty, courage, and sobriety.

And best of all, 12-step programs like this have been scientifically proven to help support sobriety in the long run. It’s even one of the eight types of behavioral therapies listed as evidence-based by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Have a look below at some of the closest AA meetings happening in and around the University District area.

Another 12-step group, Narcotics Anonymous is an offshoot of AA. And while it uses a similar model for helping recovering addicts stay sober, it addresses all types of substance addictions, not just alcoholism.

Like AA, these meetings are 100% free to attend, open to anyone, and are widely available throughout the country and the world. And while the number of meetings in the University District isn’t quite as high as AA, there are still plenty of options to choose from nearby.

Below are some of the closest.

Having an alcoholic family member can be incredibly hard to cope with. Addiction can ruin the trust between loved ones, sabotage relationships outside of the home, and can result in years of emotional and even physical abuse.

That’s where Al-Anon comes in. This 12-step program focuses on providing support to friends and family members of alcoholics. And with the support these groups provide, it can be a vital force in keeping members happy, healthy, and safe.

There are quite a few Al-Anon meetings nearby to choose from too.

An offshoot of Al-Anon, Alateen is specifically for younger friends or family members of alcoholics. Members are typically around 10 to 20 years old, depending on the group. By meeting with other victims around the same age, members of Alateen usually feel more comfortable opening up to others and getting the support they so desperately need.

There are quite a few Alateen meetings taking place nearby, too.

Growing up in an alcoholic home can have lifelong consequences. And many times, people who have done so have lasting problems that can keep them from living a healthy, happy life well into adulthood.

For them, there’s Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA). This support group is a 12-step program dedicated to helping provide support and direction for those who are still struggling with problems that can be traced back to growing up with an alcoholic parent or family member.

There are quite a few ACoA meetings in and around University District too.

12-step groups aren’t the only option. In fact, the University District has a number of 12-step alternatives to choose from. And one of the most well-respected is SMART Recovery.

This addiction support group tends to focus on the present more than the past. And rather than being led by members themselves, SMART Recovery meetings are directed by a certified instructor instead.

These groups are a great source for non-spiritual, science-based techniques and strategies for overcoming cravings and avoiding triggers.

And there are plenty of options nearby to have a look at.

Not everyone will have the means or the time to attend the in-person meetings above. Maybe their job follows a unique schedule. Or perhaps they don’t have a car to get them to a meeting.

No matter the reason, there are still other options out there for support. And online support groups are some of the easiest and most flexible alternatives to face-to-face groups.

These groups can take place over email, online forums, live chat rooms, and even video calls. In the end, it’s the far more flexible approach to recovery for those who just can’t make it to in-person meetings.

University District, WA Treatment Options for Addiction and Alcoholism

Professional Treatment for The Best Recovery Outcomes

While support is critical for maintaining sobriety, the overwhelming majority of addicts need professional help in order to ensure long-term success. And that’s where addiction treatment programs come in.

These programs are designed to use the latest science and expert guidance to help make recovery as easy and comfortable as possible. They’re also designed to boost recovery rates by using treatments that are proven to help keep patients sober.

A professional program is usually classified as either a detoxification program or a rehabilitation program. Some programs may contain both, too.

Detoxification is focused on the initial stage of recovery known as withdrawal. This stage is when the body readjusts to functioning normally without the help of an addictive substance. Patients going through withdrawal usually experience a host of uncomfortable symptoms like:

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Tremors
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Irritability
  • Paranoia
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

A professional program will provide therapy, treatment, and even certain medications to make this stage as comfortable and safe as possible.

Rehabilitation is more concerned with the mental aspect of addiction. It typically involves one-on-one counseling, behavioral therapies, and group talk sessions to help reverse the self-destructive behaviors that usually go along with addiction.

There are two different types of rehab programs too.

InpatientAn inpatient program requires patients to stay on the program campus at all times, like a recovery retreat of sorts. This allows for a more controlled environment, a higher level of care, and usually a better rate of success.

However, it can be pretty disruptive, and many patients won’t be able to attend school or a job during the program.

Outpatient – An outpatient program offers evening treatment sessions instead. This lets patients go to work or school during the day while still receiving regular help.

The tradeoff, of course, is a lower level of care since treatment doesn’t happen all day long.

For a higher level of care with the flexibility of outpatient, there are also intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) with treatment sessions that last longer and occur more frequently throughout the week.

While there are quite a few addiction treatment centers within all of Seattle, there aren’t any in the University District itself. But even still, choosing the closest treatment program isn’t always the best decision.

That’s because making the choice to travel for addiction treatment can actually end up opening a host of benefits that most people don’t consider beforehand. Some of the most notable are:

  • Getting access to higher quality treatment
  • Finding facilities with more expertise and a better track record of success
  • Opening up the door to more comfortable amenities
  • Solidifying your commitment to recovery since it’s harder to quit
  • Being cleared for certain medications not available in other facilities

In the end, the most important consideration when choosing a facility is to find one that’s right for you, not just one that’s nearby and cheap.

Crack Cocaine Addiction and Treatment

Northpoint Washington: The Premier Option for Addiction Treatment Around University District

As you can see, there are plenty of addiction resources in the University District that many people just don’t know about. These all help to keep recovering addicts safe, supported, and sober in the long run.

And when it does come time to enlist the help of a professional program, Northpoint Washington is the best choice for comprehensive care in the University District area.

Whether you need drug rehabilitation or alcohol detox and rehab, our Edmonds, WA facility is comfortable, modern, and welcoming to all kinds of addictions.
