Yakima, WA Addiction Rehab, Recovery and Mental Health Resource Guide

People who live in Yakima, Washington have access to many mental health and addiction recovery resources.

The local community has several support groups, government-sponsored programs and other ways to get help. Unfortunately, many people never get the assistance they need to manage their conditions and heal.

Organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous can provide a great deal of peer support. Various mental health support groups and programs can help people with mental illnesses thrive in their everyday lives. Also, Al-Anon and Alateen are there to assist families that are struggling because of a loved one’s addiction.

At Northpoint Washington, we offer addiction treatment and mental health services to people in Yakima. But not everyone is able to access them. That is why we have put together this page as a helpful resource to the addiction recovery and mental health resources in Yakima.

WA State Addiction Statistics

More Yakima residents died of heroin overdoses in 2017 than any year in history. It’s time to get our family members and friends the help they need.

Over the past few years, Washington state has seen a dramatic increase in the number of drug overdoses that occur here each year.

While less than 600 residents died from opioid overdoses in 2006, more than 700 lost their lives to this class of drugs in 2015.

In places Yakima County, the problem has gotten so bad that experts say drug overdoses are actually decreasing the average life expectancy.

Unfortunately, however, the addicts who live in this county aren’t getting the help they need. Although more people check into drug rehab here than in most other Washington counties, the region still loses more than 200 residents to overdoses annually.

And the alcohol problem is bad, too. While the state’s Target Zero program has helped to cut down on the prevalence of drunk driving, more than 700 people are arrested for alcohol-related crimes each year.

Information on Yakima Addiction Statistics

Of those 700, roughly 130 arrests are for DUIs. In fact, local police say that this county has a higher DUI arrest rate than any other county in the entire state.

So, it’s apparent that our friends and neighbors need help. The local drug and alcohol problem needs to stop.

Luckily, help is available…

The AA and NA meetings in Yakima are a great resource for addicts. If you or a loved one is currently struggling with addiction, these groups may be able to help you get sober.

Information on Yakima Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous: Addicts Helping Other Addicts Get Clean

The community that hangs out in Yakima’s NA meetings is vibrant and welcoming.

Every day of the week, these folks gather in churches, restaurants, community centers, and conference rooms to talk about their addictions. They share stories. They discuss their trials and tribulations. And, most importantly, they offer each other support.

The members of these groups are both newly-recovered addicts (some who just got sober yesterday) and folks who’ve been sober for years. They’re addicted to everything from crystal meth and heroin to cocaineprescription painkillers, and marijuana.

“The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away.” - Narcotics Anonymous

The group doesn’t discriminate whatsoever. No matter what you’ve done, how you’ve behaved, or who you’ve harmed, the group will welcome you with open arms.

As the organization writes in their White Booklet, “We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.”

If you’re currently dealing with an out-of-hand drug habit, then, you may be able to benefit from this program. And we can guarantee that the group will be happy to have you.

Are you looking for a recovery group near you? Well, you don’t have to look far.

Alcoholics Anonymous: A Resource for Yakima Alcoholics

While crystal meth, heroin, and prescription opioids are the primary drug problem in Washington, the Evergreen state also has an issue with alcohol, too. In fact, more than 15% of WA residents show signs of alcoholism.

So, the state’s problem-drinkers need help, too.

Information on Yakima Alcoholics Anonymous

Fortunately, there is a strong and supportive Alcoholics Anonymous community that is eager to help. Similar to NA, this organization holds free, daily meetings where alcohol addicts can go to get support.

“I have found that the process of discovering who I really am begins with knowing who I really don’t want to be.” - Alcoholics Anonymous

In these meetings, members work through the Twelve Steps, a carefully-designed system intended to help alcohol-dependent people overcome their habit.

While working through the Steps, each member works to develop healthy techniques for managing stress and avoiding relapses.

Much like the Narcotics program, this organization is open to the public. There are no commitments, either, so you’re free to pop in and join a meeting whenever you’d like to.

There are dozens of meetings in the area. No matter what time of the week you’d like to attend, there should be one that works well for you.

Check out our list below.

Please note: You’ll notice that some of these meetings are labeled “closed”. These meetings are not open to the public. In order to facilitate smaller, more intimate sessions, the group asks that only committed members of the Program attend.

Information on Yakima Al-Anon

Al-Anon: Addiction Support for Families

Loving an addict is just as difficult as suffering from addiction. After all, it hurts to watch a loved one hurt themselves with drugs or alcohol.

Because this experience can be overwhelming, it helps to have a group to talk to.

That’s why Al-Anon exists.

In these meetings, the family members of addicted people get together to talk about their lives and offer support. They tell stories and attempt to help one another cope with this painful situation.

Some Al-Anon members are married to an addict. Others are the parents, adult children, or siblings of addicts. Some of the people who attend these meetings love an addict who is still alive while others are coping with the loss of a family member.

Whatever your circumstances are, this organization can offer you the support you need to manage your feelings during this trying time.

Does this support group sound appealing to you? Do you think you could benefit from the advice, encouragement, and wisdom that Al-Anon offers?

There are a number of meetings in the area that might work for you. Take a look!

Information on Yakima Alateen

Alateen Meetings: A Resource for Young People

12% of American kids live with an addict. The children of addicts in Yakima need help, too.

Alateen is similar to Al-Anon in the sense that it offers group support to the family members of addicts. Whereas the latter caters to spouses, parents and adult children, though, this one is designed for the young children of addicts.

Addiction is a sensitive topic, after all, and it can be difficult to talk about with children. So, this organization attempts to address it in a way that makes it easy for children to understand and manage.

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services Children’s Bureau, roughly 12% of American children live with an addict. So, it’s likely that there are a lot of kids in Yakima County who could use some support.

If you know a child that could benefit from Alateen, you may want to take them to this meeting:

Sunday

6:30 PM
Naches Alateen
Naches Presbyterian Church
201 East 2nd Street
Naches, Washington 98937

Unfortunately, the listing above is the only meeting currently held in the area. If you can’t make it out to Naches on Sunday evening, you should talk to your local Al-Anon coordinator to see if you can get the child into the adult’s meeting.

Information on Yakima Detox

SMART Recovery: An Alternative to the Twelve Steps

12-step groups like AA and NA are great resources. However, these programs aren’t effective for everyone. Some people avoid the Twelve Steps because of the spiritual undertones of them. After all, the Program famously encourages members to find a “higher power” to help them through recovery.

But, many people aren’t interested in higher powers. They’re looking for practical advice, not spiritual discussion.

For these people, there is SMART Recovery. This community-based rehab program is a popular alternative to AA and NA. It offers a similarly supportive environment to12-step programs. But, it takes a more science-based approach to the recovery process.

In the SMART meetings around Yakima, members discuss strategies like stress-management, trigger avoidance, and healthy lifestyle choices. When implemented, these strategies can help addicts abstain from drug use.

Are you interested in getting sober but not interested in the Twelve Steps? Check out this SMART meeting:

Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs Near Yakima, WA

There are a number of drug detox programs around Yakima. These are some of the most valuable addiction resources in the area.

Essentially, they help addicts through the withdrawal process. As you may know, drug and alcohol withdrawals are notoriously unpleasant. Addicts need all of the help they can get during this time. 

If you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, your body is chemically dependent on it. You’ll have a hard time functioning without them in your system. When you try to quit, you won’t feel very good for a few days. You will also experience withdrawal symptoms. Depending on your drug of choice, these symptoms may include nausea, anxiety, insomnia, and even seizures. In some cases, withdrawal symptoms can even be dangerous. 

So, it’s important to detox under the supervision of a doctor. They’ll monitor your symptoms to ensure your safety throughout the process. They’ll also employ techniques to minimize symptoms and make you feel as comfortable as possible while you withdraw.

Are you trying to quit drinking? Our Alcohol Detox program can help you get the booze out of your system!

Some people are able to quit cold turkey and detox at home. However, this approach doesn’t always work. When withdrawal symptoms appear, it’s easy to relapse to end the discomfort. Therefore, detoxing at home isn’t the best approach. 

In a professional detox program, on the other hand, you’ll have no access to nonprescription drugs. Doctors may administer some anti-addiction medications to ease your withdrawal symptoms, but you won’t have the option to relapse. This is a far more effective approach for anyone who truly wants to get sober.

Detox is different for everyone. Some people are able to finish in a week, or even a few days. Other people take longer. Ultimately, it depends on the individual. 

There are a few factors that impact withdrawal timelines. These include: 

Type of drug: Some drugs have longer half-lives than others. This means that they live in the body longer, and therefore take longer to flush out. Cocaine, for example, has a relatively short half-life. It’s easier to detox from cocaine than, say, heroin or another drug with a longer half-life. 

Nature of habit: Heavy users may have to taper off their drug of choice slowly. Chronic drinkers, for example, should not quit cold turkey. Immediate stoppage can lead to dangerous side effects. Therefore, it takes heavy users longer to detox.

Physical health: In order for someone to detox rapidly, their body must be in good shape. They need healthy organs to metabolize the drugs left in their system. If they have an unhealthy liver or kidneys, they may have difficulty detoxing.

Age: Unfortunately, older folks don’t always have the healthiest organs, especially after years of drug use. It usually takes older addicts longer to detox from drugs or alcohol than younger users.

After detox, addicts should check into rehab. There are many rehab programs near Yakima. So, if you’ve recently gotten of drugs in the area, you shouldn’t have trouble finding a good program nearby. 

If you’re not interested in rehabilitation, you should start going to AA or NA meetings ASAP. These groups can provide the community and support you need to thrive in sobriety.

Drug & Alcohol Rehab Programs Near Yakima, WA

Yakima is also home to a number of fantastic rehab centers. These facilities provide therapy and counseling for newly-recovered addicts. They help people to transition from addicted lives to sober ones. 

For some people, the transition from addiction to sobriety is difficult. After all, life doesn’t necessarily get easier once you get the drugs out of your system. And just because you’re sober now, doesn’t mean you’ll stay that way. In order to live a truly sober life, you’ll have to battle cravings, avoid triggers, and learn to deal with stress in a healthy way. 

Rehab can help you get there. These programs will help you develop stress-management techniques and teach you how to avoid relapsing. In rehab, you’ll attend individual counseling sessions, group therapy, and other classes. These resources will provide the tools you need to live a healthy, sober lifestyle.

Want to learn more about the rehabilitation process? Check out our Drug Rehab and Alcohol Rehab programs!

There are a few different types of rehab programs around Yakima. Some programs are inpatient programs, while others are outpatient. 

Inpatient programs are residential. They offer housing. Patients move into the facility for 4-6 weeks and live on-site for the duration of their treatment. During the day, they attend treatment. At night, they read, exercise, and chat with other patients.

This type works best for people who want to get away from their lives for a little while. Inpatient programs offer time and space to focus on recovery. These rehab programs are drug-free, so there’s no temptation to relapse.

Outpatient programs, on the other hand, are non-residential. The patient does not live in the facility itself. Instead, they live at home and attend treatment during the day. Depending on the program, they may attend anywhere from 5 to 30 hours per week.

This type works best for busy people — students, parents, and professionals. If you want to get sober but have responsibilities to tend to, outpatient rehab could be a great option for you!

Free and Low-Cost Rehab Programs Near Yakima

Oftentimes, cost deters addicts from seeking treatment. They think that it’s too expensive to pursue, so they continue to use drugs. 

But in reality, not all rehab programs are expensive. Some organizations offer free and low-cost treatment options. Around Yakima, there are several free detox and rehab programs. These programs are run mostly by churches and community centers.

It’s important to note that these facilities are sometimes overbooked. Some of them have extensive waiting lists that prohibit addicts from getting the treatment they need. 

Fortunately, there are other options. 

At Northpoint Washington, we work with insurance companies to make addiction treatment affordable. We partner with a number of providers, such as MHNet and 6 Degrees, to provide low-cost treatment. If you subscribe to a health insurance plan, you may be entitled to free rehab through your provider. 

And even if you don’t have insurance, there are still options. We offer payment plans to help you get treatment when you need it. We’ll treat you now and you can pay us back later. 

Don’t let money deter you from getting sober. Call us today to discuss payment options and get the help you need.
