Finding a place to go for alcoholism help can be tricky. Searching online can give you thousands of results, some of which might not even be relevant or near you.
Here are some ways to help you find information fast:
Your Phone Book: Most phone books have a section in the front with government and non-profit listings. There will be several places and hot lines listed there you can call.
Your Local Hospital: Most major hospitals have drug and alcohol divisions and mental health departments. Calling the hospital can help point you in the right direction for learning about detox and alcohol rehab services.
Online: You can use the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment Center Locator to find a place near you.
A Local Church: Even if you are not religious or a member of a church, they often have this information available and will be more than happy to help you.
School Guidance Counselors: Every school has a guidance department. Contact them to see if they can recommend any services.
