Sources for Help

If you need immediate help, go to Narcotics Annonymous meetings on a DAILY basis and ask those people what you can do. They have been down the same path and there is little they do not understand or have experienced for themselves.

I am sure Maricopa County social services might have an answer for you as well, but make the call to NA. When you make the calls, be open, honest and willing to follow their lead.

No money for treatment..

by: andrew johns [poetical justice]

Treatment can mean a lot of things. You need to get in touch with your local drug treatment centre or go see your doctor as they will give you the best advice on where to go.

I’ll tell you this that it’s not an easy road to go down and if she does not commit fully it will not work and in that case look at treatment to deal with the addiction what is the most serious first.

But always remember that she cannot just stop taking whatever she is taking because it could kill her because of the chemical imbalance in her brain. It needs to be done in small but safe steps with support..

If you don’t mind me asking what is she taking? If i know what she is taking I’ll be better able to tell you what treatment she will need as there isn’t a lot I don’t know about addiction.

Also you may have a read of my poem that i wrote when i was going through my addiction to opiates and cocaine the link is…. please leave a comment and I’ll try guide you into what you need too know.

My dad is an alcoholic

by: Anonymous

Hi I am a 22 year old girl who has a dad that is an alcoholic. He has been drinking ever since I’ve been alive and he is now breaking down and realizing his problem. Only thing is he doesn’t have enough money or insurance, now do I. The other night he told me he didn’t drink all day or night and he was going through horrible withdraws. I’m scared for him. And don’t really know what to do. What are the chances of cold turkey? Is that his only option. Desperate help! Please respond!

He needs to go to the ER and daily AA meetings right now! right now

Alcohol withdrawal is very difficult and sometimes FATAL, so your dad MUST seek medical help. A trip to the emergency room might be in order. Once he is out and through detoxification, he can turn to Alcoholics Anonymous for help.

He should go to meetings, get a sponsor and start working the 12 Step program. It doesn’t cost any money, but if he works the program, it will work, as it has for millions of people over the last 70 years.

You also can use some support, so I recommend you turn to Al-anon, an organization dedicated to helping daughters just like you. You need to learn how to help him.

Understand that alcoholism is a brain disease, so your father doesn’t have complete control over his drinking. The disease is powerful, which is why a program for him is necessary to rebuild his life and get back on the right path. You can play a huge part in that.

Encourage him to seek medical help, then call AA and get him to go to meetings daily, “90 meetings in 90” days is often the most helpful.
