Rupert is the county seat and largest city of Minidoka County, Idaho. Some of the city’s residents are struggling with alcoholism. Alcoholism has five stages and two facets – addiction and dependence. Alcohol dependence is a diagnosis where an individual is physically or psychologically dependent on alcohol. Most times when an individual remains dependent on alcohol for a prolonged period they will develop alcohol use disorder, or AUD. AUD can then lead to severely damaging consequences such as physical and psychological damage, professional dysfunction, and financial and emotional distress. One of the most effective methods for treating AUD is Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA. AA’s group support therapy concept is renowned around the world primarily for its ‘Twelve Steps’ model. The world-famous ‘Twelve Steps’ model is a major part of its counseling sessions, AA meetings. The therapy sessions are gatherings of people with alcohol dependency who meet and interact in one location for at least one-hour sharing addiction stories and supporting each other. AA meeting locations are warm and welcoming with a culture of non-discrimination, openness, confidentiality, and freedom. AA is not allied with any organization and institution, political party, religion, nor wish to endorse nor oppose any cause. AA meetings in Rupert are listed on alcoholicsanonymous.com, which groups all AA meetings in Idaho.
