Lakewood Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources
Addiction is a crisis that has swept across the nation, leaving broken individuals and families in its wake. Regardless of age, income, class, or race, residents of the smaller city of Lakewood faces this epidemic too. A local newspaper, “The News Tribune”, reported recently that a paramedic was arrested for allegedly stealing fentanyl from ambulances.
The same newspaper states that heroin and prescription medication are the primary substances being misused with 6.5% Pierce County residents suffering from addiction. Although the stories throughout the country are alarming and heartbreaking, Lakewood is doing its part to combat the problem by offering treatment services by way of detox, outpatient, medication-assisted treatment, residential treatment and aftercare.

Finding Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Lakewood, WA
Lakewood, Washington Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab Centers
How can you know which treatment program you need? You need to look at your situation and ask yourself a few questions. Are you in need of detox? Are you dependent upon a substance that doesn’t have many withdrawal symptoms like marijuana or hallucinogens? Or are you dependent upon a substance that has a painful withdrawal process like opioids or alcohol? Do you have a current stable and safe place to live? What is your history with addiction? All of these things will affect which treatment program you need.
Residential Treatment Programs
Residential treatment is designed for those suffering with a long-term or serious dependence. Residential is ideal for those who have relapsed several times or for those with an addiction to substances like opioids or benzodiazepines. In residential treatment, the patient lives at the center until treatment is finished and receives a vast array of medical, psychological, and supportive therapies and classes.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization is meant to be short-term. Many patients progress from residential treatment to a PHP, which is also sometimes called “dayhab”. It is just like the residential program, but patients will go home at night.
Outpatient Treatment Programs
Offering a little more flexibility and freedom than the PHP, outpatient treatment programs only ask patients to be in the facility for therapy and other healing activities for 10 to 15 hours per week.
Many people elect to enroll in a treatment program at a national network of rehabilitation facilities like The Recovery Village because The Recovery Village gives you access to the highest quality amenities, the most experienced addiction specialists and healthcare professionals and the most effective aftercare plans to avoid relapse.

If you are addicted to a substance like marijuana or cocaine, there are virtually no physical withdrawal symptoms. However, if you are addicted to a substance like opiates or benzodiazepines, there is a detoxification process you will need to go through before you can begin a treatment program. Many people choose to pursue this process at a Washington detox center where medical supervision is provided.
Others know that while detox is important, it is only one step of many that must be taken on a road to long-term recovery. Treatment programs are essential to your health and wellbeing. The Recovery Village and other national treatment centers offer detox programs as well as the inpatient, partial hospitalization or outpatient programs that you need to ensure you avoid relapse.
Recovery Meetings Near You
Recovery is a multi-layered journey. Finishing a recovery program can be life-affirming, but it is just the initial phase of recovery. Aftercare is as important as the steps that precede it. Aftercare services usually include recovery meetings like those of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or SMART Recovery.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) MeetingsAlcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women overcoming alcohol addiction by leaning on each other for support, going through the 12 steps, abiding by the 12 traditions, reading helpful and positive literature like The Big Book and working with a sponsor. None of this is required to attend meetings and become a member, however. All you need to attend a meeting is the desire to stop drinking. Many Lakewood alcohol rehab centers, as well as others nationwide, provide information about AA. Here are meetings in the Lakewood area.
- Another Lakewood Spiritual Breakfast Group Where: Bur’s Restaurant 6151 Steilacoom Blvd. SW Lakewood, WA 98499
- Alacoma Club Where: 6507 Mt. Tacoma Dr. SW Lakewood, WA 98499
- American Veteran’s Hospital Chapel Where: 9500 Veteran’s Dr. SW Lakewood, WA 98498
Narcotics Anonymous (NA) MeetingsNarcotics Anonymous is a lot like Alcoholics Anonymous but for those who are addicted to harder substances than just alcohol like cocaine (powder or crack), heroin, prescription opiates, prescription stimulants, prescription benzodiazepines and marijuana. Started in 1953, Narcotics Anonymous meetings are run in a similar way to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. After completing treatment at a drug rehab center in Lakewood, WA (or any other city), NA can help keep you in recovery. Here are some options for meetings in the area:
- Alacoma Club Where: 6507 Mt Tacoma Dr SW Lakewood, WA 98499
- American Veteran’s Hospital Chapel Where: 9500 Veteran’s Dr. SW Lakewood, WA 98498
- Brown Bag Lunch Where: 6508 Montclair Ave. Lakewood, WA 98499
SMART Recovery MeetingsThose who criticize the 12-step approach for being too spiritually based by speaking about a higher power will most likely be much more drawn to the 4-point system of SMART Recovery, which stands for Self-Management for Addiction Recovery Training. In the SMART Recovery system, addiction is a series of harmful behaviors that can be controlled and managed whereas 12-step programs see addiction as a disease. SMART Recovery holds face-to-face meetings and meetings online. Here are the closest meetings to Lakewood.
- Gig Harbor Thursday Where: 5500 Olympic Dr. NW Gig Harbor, WA 98355
- Forrey’s Forza Where: 130 Marvin Rd. SE Marvin Rd. SE Suite Lacey, WA 98503
- Olalla Recovery Center Where: Southeast Lakeway Blvd. Port Orchard, WA 98367
Al-Anon and Nar-Anon MeetingsLoved ones of those who are suffering from substance misuse go through quite a lot. They often need to recharge in an environment where they are able to be open and honest with others who understand what they are going through. Al-Anon and Nar-Anon provides this for the family members, friends, relatives and spouses of those who suffer with alcohol and/or drug addiction. Here are the Lakewood area meetings.
- Nar-Anon Where: Just for Today 6613 S. Cheyenne St. Tacoma, WA 98409
