Learn More About NA Meetings in Alaska
Throughout the country, NA meetings provide helpful support and guidance to those suffering from a wide range of addiction related problems. Alaska NA meetings are a well-known tool for recovery which offer personal guidance, group support, and quality interaction that can fuel recovery from the disease of addiction.
Whether you’re in search of a meeting in Anchorage or Juneau, Alaska NA meetings are locally available throughout much of the state. In addition to the meetings taking place regularly at churches and in community centers throughout Alaska, many twelve step meetings are also found offering supportive care online.
How NA Meetings Work
The NA meeting places emphasis on the desired abstinence and yearning for recovery that many addicts face after addiction has wreaked havoc on their lives. When a member attends an NA meeting, he or she is welcomed in a supportive environment in which others (many suffering from similar problems) work together to provide support and guidance in the recovery process.
NA meetings can be a helpful alternative to anyone who is ready to begin the steps towards recovery. Members aren’t interested in how long you have used drugs, how many drugs or what types of drugs you have used; their primary concern is how important your recovery is and what they can do to help you get (and stay) sober.
Meetings can be either open or closed. An open NA meeting in Alaska means that anyone can attend the group including those who are still using drugs but wish to stop, those who are interested in learning more about the program but are not users, those who are there for motivation, etc. A closed NA meeting in Alaska is a meeting in which only those who are recovering may attend. These groups tend to get more personal than the open groups which are slightly less focused but equally helpful to those looking for support in a recovery environment.
Is 12-Step Treatment Right for Me?
Although NA meetings are not the right choice for every addict, they can be very helpful to those who are ready to make positive changes in their lives. If you are addicted to a drug, if you are looking for a way to get sober, and if you are open to receiving support from others, then these types of programs can help.
NA meetings in Alaska are an ongoing commitment that you will make to both yourself and to the other members of the group. Individuals who join 12-step support receive a dedicated sponsor whom they can call at any time, day or night, for immediate support. Likewise, as you progress through treatment, you will likely become a sponsor yourself and later act as the go to source for others in the beginning stages of the recovery and healing process.
When combined with other forms of treatment, such as inpatient or outpatient counseling and behavioral therapy, NA meetings are an effective means of fueling the growth, healing and overall support necessary for lifelong recovery from this terrible disease.
Many long term drug abusers avoid getting help because they’re afraid to suffer the mental, physical and emotional trauma of the withdrawal process—but there’s no need to fear. When detoxification is monitored by trained, clinical professionals, problems are minimized and comfort is maximized. Now is the best time rid your body of addictive substances once and for all.
After detoxification, you can move on to getting treatment with a clearer mind and stronger body. Rehabilitation structures your life around breaking free of addiction. Group, family, and individual therapy can uncover and address any co-occurring mental health issues that may be contributing to your addiction.
Being honest about yourself is the key to long-lasting recovery. Ongoing attendance at 12-step meetings is a great way to maintain sobriety by helping you continue to work on issues and build a support network to see you through hard times, so you can continue to live a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life.
