Home of the headquarters of salad dressing manufacturer Litehouse Foods and utility aircraft maker Quest Aircraft, Sandpoint is known for its active retail sector. The city also has a history of alcohol addiction, with several of its residents suffering from alcohol use disorder. The largest city in Bonner County, Idaho has set up Alcoholics Anonymous meeting points in place to help its residents overcome alcohol addiction. Alcohol use disorder, or AUD, is a medical condition where individuals struggle to control their drinking and suffer withdrawal symptoms if they attempt to quit. These withdrawal symptoms range from mild to serious. If you seek medical help for alcohol withdrawal symptoms, your doctor could suggest inpatient care and drug treatment. Common medications such as benzodiazepines are usually used to treat symptoms. To treat more serious symptoms like seizures, anxiety, insomnia, and hallucinations, anti-seizure meds, and antipsychotics, along with other drugs, may be prescribed. However, treating alcohol withdrawal with medications is a short-term fix for symptom relief that does not solve the core problem. Group support therapies such as Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, is one of the treatments for alcohol addiction that will help you to stop drinking completely. AA meetings provide peer support that uncovers the root cause of your addiction. You can find information for local AA meetings in Sandpoint on alcoholicsanonymous.com, which groups all AA meetings in Idaho.
