Drug Addiction Questions

How do I Find an A.A. Meeting?

We recommend you go directly to the AA web site’s listings.

http://www.alcoholics-anonymous.org/en_find_meeting.cfm

Alcoholics Anonymous is a large organization, with meetings all over the U.S., Canada and worldwide. We have posted this link to lead you directly to the meetings page on the AA web site.

Follow the instructions on this page. In the third paragraph it invites you to click on “ General Service Conference Area Web sites” which will take you to another page giving you a state-by-state listing. There are many areas of AA, so your clicking will take you out of the AA web site to the site of a different group or area. Just be patient and follow instructions.

Once you narrow your search down to a specific area where you live, and understand that larger urban areas might be divided into several smaller areas, you will get a full listing of times and places. It seems difficult at first glance, but just follow the clicking instructions. It’s a great tool.

Husband is currently in withdrawal…What’s next?

I am the wife of a man who is currently in the hospital in the throws of withdrawal from alcohol.

He just started the DT’s and I think they will last a while.

I guess my question is, what’s next?

He needs to get into rehab but I am afraid that he will not go.

If he continues to drink the damage that he has done to his body will get worse and he will die.

I am a recovering drug addict myself, I understand the mechanics of this illness, I just don’t know how to help him.

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

Our Response:

Needs Treatment AND Recovery!

You’re right to be concerned for your
husband. After his detoxification, which is not pleasant, his problems
will certainly NOT be over.

He may not have alcohol in his system and he may be “sober,” but he is still an alcoholic.

He needs treatment for his disease and after treatment he needs to be in recovery.

Recovering
alcoholics can rebuild their lives by correcting bad habits, changing
their lifestyle to accommodate the reality that they can not drink.

If
people merely go through detox and immediately return to the
environment where they got into trouble, it doesn’t take a phi beta
kappa to figure out that trouble is right around the corner.

Detox is not sobriety. You might want to dialog with his doctors, give Al-Anon a call and start forming a plan for how you can be of help.

He is going to have to make some decisions and hopefully those decisions will lead to the path of recovery.
