Spokane Valley Addiction Resources & Information

Spokane Valley is a beautiful place to live. It is located in Spokane County, Washington and surrounded by a picturesque landscape of rolling hills and lush greenery. Spokane Valley is the largest suburb of Spokane. It has a population of about 100,000 people. And, the reality is that many residents in the area struggle with addiction.

While alcohol abuse is a serious concern for the people of Lilac City, what is even more troubling is the drug addiction problem. (Here are some startling statistics about nearby Spokane.) The problem is so great that law enforcement has named Spokane Valley a “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area” (HIDA).

HIDA Status

To qualify for federal HIDA status, an area must meet the following criteria: 

  • The area is a significant center of illegal drug production, manufacturing, importation, or distribution;
  • State, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies have committed resources to respond to the drug trafficking problem in the area, thereby indicating a determination to respond aggressively to the problem;
  • Drug-related activities in the area are having a significant harmful impact in the area and in other areas of the country; and
  • A significant increase in allocation of Federal resources is necessary to respond adequately to drug related activities in the area. 

The fact that the area  has HIDA status speaks to the growing problem of drug addiction in Lilac City. Methamphetamines, heroin, Molly, and prescription opioids like Oxycodone are readily available in the area, which makes the entire community vulnerable to substance abuse. There has never been a greater need for a free comprehensive guide of addiction resources in Spokane Valley.

In this guide, we will provide information about getting help for an alcohol or drug problem in Spokane Valley, including the following:

  • Information about alcohol detox and alcohol rehab in Spokane Valley
  • Information about drug detox in Spokane Valley as well as drug rehab
  • Instructions for how to respond to a drug overdose  
  • Free addiction resources in Spokane Valley
  • Help for Families
  • Quizzes that will help you determine if you have a drug or alcohol problem
  • Quizzes that might help you decide if your family member is addicted

This guide has been designed simply to help anyone who needs addiction resources for the Spokane Valley area. If you or a family member has a problem with addiction, things will never get better without help. They will only get worse. Addiction is a life-threatening condition. If you need immediate assistance, please contact us. We are here to help.

First  things first, let’s talk about drug overdoses. The Center for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) has reported that there were approximately 72, 000 overdose deaths in 2017. And, sadly, because heroin and prescription painkillers like Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Percocet, and Fentanyl are so readily available in Spokane Valley, it is important to know what to do in the event of an overdose.

An accidental drug overdose is considered a medical emergency. If you even suspect that you or someone you love is having an opioid overdose, you should call 911 immediately. 

Here are some overdose warning signs:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Very slowed breathing
  • Incoherency
  • Pinpoint or very dilated pupils
  • Cold to the touch
  • Lips or skin turning a blue or greyish color
  • Unconsciousness
  • The inability to wake up

If you or someone you love is abusing opioids, an overdose is highly likely. Here is what you can do to prepare for an overdose to prevent sudden death if and when an overdose happens.

If you want information about unknown substances you have found in the possession of a loved one, you may contact national Poison Control or Washington Poison Control 24-7 with questions or concerns.

The National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism reports that there are approximately 88,000 deaths every year in the United States caused by alcohol. Many of these are caused by alcohol poisoning.

Like a drug overdose, alcohol poisoning should be considered a medical emergency. If you even suspect that someone is experiencing alcohol poisoning, you should call 911 immediately. When mixed with other drugs, the likelihood of alcohol poisoning increases.

Here are a few symptoms of alcohol poisoning:

  • Vomiting
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Unconsciousness
  • Slurred speech
  • Slowed breathing
  • Cold or clammy skin
  • Blue or greyish skin
  • Unconsciousness
  • The inability to wake up
  • Erratic heartbeat

Even if someone is drunk and belligerent and insists that they are fine, it is better to be safe than sorry. Call for help and let medical professionals assess the situation.

Alcohol Detox

Most people completely underestimate the dangers of alcohol addiction. Because the drug is legal (yes, alcohol is a drug), people have a tendency to minimize the effects of binge-drinking and excessive alcohol consumption.

Alcohol is a highly addictive substance. If you or someone you love is addicted to alcohol, withdrawal can be life-threatening. Withdrawal is what happens when you have been consuming large quantities of alcohol and you suddenly stop.

Detoxification is the first step on the road to recovery. The only way to quit drinking is to quit drinking. Unfortunately, putting down the bottle isn’t as easy as it might seem.

You should never try and quit drinking on your own. Alcohol detoxification is not only extremely unpleasant, it poses a serious risk to your health. Delirium tremens, heart attack, stroke, seizures, and even death can result from alcohol withdrawal. Going cold turkey is dangerous and deadly. Don’t do it.

If you believe you might be addicted to alcohol, you should undergo an assessment by an addiction treatment expert to determine if you need a medical detox. During a professional medical detoxification, you will be monitored and evaluated around the clock to ensure your safety. During your detox, you will also be given medication to ease painful alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

There are a number of alcohol detox programs available in and around Spokane Valley, including one here at Northpoint Washington.

Do you think you might be hooked on alcohol? Taking this quiz might give you some answers.

Additionally, here are 10 symptoms of alcoholism

Not everyone who has a problem with drinking requires a medical detox. However; if you do need a medical detox, you should definitely follow up with alcohol addiction rehabilitation. Detox and rehab should go together. If you don’t need a medical detox, that is great news. You can start alcohol rehab right away. Alcohol rehab is recommended for anyone who has an addiction to alcohol.

You have several options when it comes to alcohol rehab in Spokane Valley. The two most popular are inpatient rehab and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). If you think you have a problem with alcohol, you should undergo an assessment to see which option is best for you.

Inpatient rehab requires you to stay at a facility around-the-clock for as long as three months (although the typical alcohol rehab in Spokane Valley is 28 days). During your stay, you will participate in a custom treatment plan designed to meet your individual needs. At rehab, you will be equipped with the tools you need to learn how to stay sober one day at a time. You will also address underlying issues.

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) allows you to stay at home and attend several hours of treatment three to five times a week. This is a popular choice for those who must continue to work while getting treatment. Many college students who want to maintain their academic studies also attend IOP. And, parents who are raising a family also benefit.

Want to know if you should consider an Intensive Outpatient Program? Take this quiz.

Help is also available for functional alcoholics.

Addiction to illegal street drugs (like heroin, cocaine, or methamphetamines) and prescription opioids (like Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Fentanyl) have become a major problem in Spokane Valley. For many, a drug detox is the solution.

Not all drugs require a professional detox. Although every addictive substance will cause withdrawal once it is stopped suddenly (even marijuana), there are specific drugs can be dangerous and life-threatening. 

For example, drugs like opioids (heroin or prescription painkillers) and benzodiazepines (like Xanax, Valium, or Ativan) can cause major health complications. If you or someone you love has been abusing these highly addictive substances, you should not quit taking them without professional help. Quitting cold turkey will not only cause very painful withdrawal symptoms, these symptoms can be life-threatening and cause dangerous health complications.

If you have been abusing drugs of any kind, or you have been engaged in polysubstance abuse, you should be evaluated by an addiction expert. He or she can determine whether a drug detox is necessary and tell you what your options are.

There are a number of affordable drug detoxes in Spokane Valley. At Northpoint Washington, we offer a medical detoxification program for those who need to safely and comfortably withdraw from dangerous drugs.

Drug addiction is a debilitating illness that destroys individuals and their families. It requires extensive treatment that should be performed by substance abuse treatment experts. Most people try to quit using drugs on their own many times before they finally reach out for help. There is no shame in having an addiction to drugs. No matter how hopeless things may seem, things can and do get better if you get treatment.

Many people benefit from inpatient addiction treatment in Spokane Valley. They stay at a facility for 28 days or longer where they are monitored around the clock. This level of supervision removes temptation and gives people in recovery a feeling of safety and security. It also allows them to focus on their sobriety and learning the tools they need to get well.

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is another option. Instead of living at a facility, those who attend IOP attend rehab several hours a day three to five days a week. This allows professionals to continue to work while they get help. It also allows college students to stay in school and parents to tend to their children every day.

Attending a drug rehab in Spokane Valley is the right choice if you are struggling with an addiction to drugs. The fact is, if you could have stopped on your own, you would have done so by now. Going to rehab gives you the opportunity to get your life back on track.

Free Addiction Resources in Spokane Valley, Washington

Many addicted people and their families want to get help for a problem with addiction, but they simply cannot the cost of professional help.

Help for Families in Spokane Valley, WA

Addiction doesn’t just destroy the individual, it also devastates families. Many people don’t realize it when they have an addicted loved one, but the disease of addiction is a family illness. This means it negatively impacts the entire family unit.

When there is an alcoholic or addict in the family, loved ones need resources too. It can feel impossible to handle this kind of situation on your own – and you don’t have to.

Al-Anon is a fellowship of men and women for those who have an addicted loved one. Meetings are free and open to anyone who wants to learn coping skills for dealing with someone who has a drug or alcohol problem.
