Dothan Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Substance abuse seems to be taking over America as more and more people are suffering the effects of alcohol and/or drug addiction. Illegal drugs like ecstasy, heroin and methamphetamine are causing a lot of problems, but prescription drugs are also causing a big problem for many people in the country. Just because a physician can prescribe drugs like Xanax, hydrocodone and Adderall doesn’t mean patients can’t become dependent on them and misuse them.

Alabama has felt the effects of the epidemic of drug and alcohol addiction. Out of every state in the country, Alabama has the highest rate of prescription narcotic use. Even in the city of Dothan, citizens throughout Alabama are addicted to substances like alcohol, benzodiazepines, heroin and cocaine. Suffering from substance misuse issues can feel hopeless, but you don’t need to despair. You can seek the treatment you deserve.

Anyone who suffers from an addiction to drugs or alcohol has a sickness that needs to be treated. Detox centers, rehab centers and recovery meetings can all be a part of that treatment.

Detox Centers

What exactly is the purpose of a detox center? Patients that are addicted to certain substances (benzodiazepines or opiates) will need medical supervision as they detoxify their bodies, and this can happen at a detox center. You may relapse if you try to detox by yourself as withdrawal symptoms will become. However, with medical supervision, you will be kept comfortable.

The detoxification process — though essential to a recovery journey — is only dealing with the physical aspect of addiction. A treatment program deals with the spiritual, emotional, psychological and mental aspects of addiction. Detox centers can be beneficial, but it is sometimes smarter to attend a facility like The Recovery Village where you will be provided with medically assisted detox and be able to begin a treatment program right after.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Finding a recovery group that works for you is important. You need to attend regular meetings – whether they are with Narcotics Anonymous, SMART Recovery or Alcoholics Anonymous – to avoid relapse. Here are the options for meetings in the Dothan area.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

For over 80 years, Alcoholics Anonymous has been a fellowship of women and men who struggle with alcohol addiction. AA meetings are so helpful because they allow millions of people to discuss their alcohol addiction openly with others who know exactly what they are going through. With over 100,000 groups meeting in over 170 countries, the original 12-step program is the most popular recovery program in the world. Here are 3 options for meetings in Dothan, Alabama.

    The Wiregrass Club
    112 Herring St.
    Dothan, AL 36303

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Founded in 1953 by Jimmy Kinnon, Narcotics Anonymous is the 12-step program for those who are addicted to harder substances. NA uses essentially the same 12 steps that AA uses, asking members to turn over their addiction to a higher power, make amends for previous wrongdoings and spread the program to others who are still struggling with addiction. While many people interpret a higher power to mean God, it could also be a more abstract concept like family or community. Here are 3 options for meetings in Dothan.

    104 E. Adams St.
    Dothan, AL 36303

  • Wiregrass Club

SMART Recovery Meetings

SMART Recovery provides an alternative to the 12-step groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. Where the 12 steps ask those who struggle with addiction to look to a higher power outside of themselves, SMART Recovery focuses more on self-reliance. In SMART Recovery, addiction is not seen as a disease, but it is seen as a series of behaviors that can be changed. Standing for Self-Management for Addiction Recovery Training, there are SMART Recovery meetings all over the world as well as online. Here are the meetings that are close to Dothan.

  • MACH
    Where:
    6600 Van Aalst Blvd.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon Meetings

Being a mother, father, daughter, son, wife, husband or other relative of someone who has substance use disorder is not always easy. When a person is in active addiction, he or she may do several things to make other people feel hurt, betrayed or angry. These loved ones need an environment where they can have open and honest conversations with other people who understand what they are going through. Nar-Anon and Al-Anon are two groups that provide this environment. Here are two Dothan Al-Anon meetings.

  • Al-Anon 
    Where:
    Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church
    2643 Murphy Mill Rd.
