Learn More About NA Meetings in Iowa
From Des Moines to Cedar Rapids, Iowa NA meetings take place regularly in all major cities and towns as well as in small, rural neighborhoods. For those who find themselves looking for added support outside of treatment, NA meetings in Iowa are often a saving grace.
These meetings utilize the 12 step philosophy of admitting addiction, making a decision to change, apologizing to those who have been hurt by the addiction, asking for forgiveness and later helping others in the same manner. Since the early 1900s, NA meetings have been providing a foundation for those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.
Types of Meetings
In Iowa, as well as throughout the United States and in other areas of the world, NA meetings generally take place in one of two common formats: open meetings and closed meetings.
Open NA meetings in Iowa are those which welcome the involvement of others who are addicted, in recovery or in some other manner affected by addiction. These meetings are ideal for anyone interested in learning more about the NA process, anyone who has a loved one or friend who is addicted, or anyone in the early phase of recovery who has recently decided to seek help or who is only just considering the option of getting sober.
Closed NA meetings in Iowa are slightly more personal and are not generally open to outsiders. These meetings are reserved for those who are in recovery and have become members of NA. These meetings allow a safe, private atmosphere where the 12 steps of recovery can be more clearly discussed in great detail without the risk of personal member information being shared with outsiders.
If you’re ready to get sober, NA meetings offer a stepping stone upon which you can begin the journey to recovery.
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.
