How do you make an appointment for an alcohol intervention?

Simply calling the group, contacting them through email, contacting them via their website, or making an appointment to show up in person is all that is required. The only requirement is that you must be 21 years old to participate.

If you decide to make an appointment, try to do it as soon as possible after deciding that you need help. The sooner you start treatment, the better your chance of success.

Most interventions take place over a series of visits that last for about an hour each. You will be asked questions and may be given homework to work on between visits.

During the first visit, the staff will explain the program requirements and answer any questions you have. They will also provide information on local services if you need them. If you agree to participate in the program, you will be asked to sign a contract agreeing to comply with the rules until your next visit.

The second visit will take place one week later. The goal is to help those who are willing to change stop drinking altogether during this time. If you are still drinking even though you know you should not, then you should not receive any more visits. However, if you are attending regularly and are working on changing some of your habits, then more visits may be scheduled.

How do I make a referral to Alcoholics Anonymous?

Alcoholics Anonymous may be located on the internet at www.aa.org and in most phone directories by searching for "Alcoholics Anonymous." (Some professionals request that the person to whom they are referring phone the local A.A. number while still in the office, providing an instant chance to seek assistance.) Many employers have wellness programs that include access to alcoholism treatment, so inquire about these opportunities when applying for a job.

Where is the Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Wilmington?

For many people who feel they may have a drinking problem, it is their first point of contact with Alcoholics Anonymous. Everyone is welcome to join the Special Events Committee! Meetings are conducted in the Intergroup Building, 5901 Wrightsville Ave, on the first Thursday of each month at 5:30pm. No one will judge you or say you're bad for having a drink now and then - everyone's story is different. What matters is that you work the program and find help when you need it.

If you're interested in learning more about what resources are available to you through AA, come to any meeting where the guest speaker is invited. These speakers include experts in addiction treatment fields such as psychology, psychiatry, nursing, social work, counseling, medical science, etc. They share their knowledge with the group so that we all can better understand how to support each other while working our steps.

Invite someone to go with you to your first meeting. It's not expected that you will go immediately after being invited (or even before) - but it's helpful if someone supports you during this important process.

How to hold an alcohol intervention for a loved one?

To improve the odds of success, the intervention team should have previously investigated, specified, and contacted possible treatment programs and providers, and they should be able to get the client into treatment right away. The intervention team should also have tried to work out any problems with the client's current treatment provider before starting the intervention.

The intervention should take place in a private setting that is comfortable for the person being intervened upon. Some suggestions include a hospital or rehab center therapy room, someone's home, or even on a public bus if this person seems like they might need some time alone. You should also try not to involve other people unless they've given you their consent to do so. For example, if there is a spouse or child involved, the best option may be to bring them along for part of the intervention but not all of it. This way they know what is going on and can help support the person during difficult times but cannot be used as an excuse for letting the person off the hook later.

Plan ahead to make sure everything goes smoothly. If your goal is to get someone into treatment, then you should start planning for this as soon as you realize that they are having trouble controlling their drinking. Make calls to treatment centers in your area by phone or online message boards to see which ones are currently accepting patients.
