What Kinds of Questions Will They Ask When I Call?

Questions asked will vary depending upon which recovery hotline or help line you call. When calling our alcohol addiction helpline, there are some common alcohol abuse questions that we will ask to assess your situation to see if we can be of assistance. There are many questions to ask an alcoholic, but we can assure you that every one we ask serves a specific purpose.

  • Questions will likely focus on:

    • Verifying that the caller or person struggling with alcohol is currently in a non-life-threatening situation
    • What specific facets of alcohol abuse are present
    • If there are other factors involved with the addiction (such as an eating disorder, drug addiction or mental health issues)
    • If the individual is ready to start treatment for their addiction
    • If our programs offer a suitable course of treatment for their alcohol addiction

Is the Conversation Confidential?

Our 24-hour alcohol hotline is 100% confidential. It’s also a toll-free hotline and serves as the first step in a 24-hour alcohol detox journey. If you have a concern about a national helpline or free talk hotline for any condition, our recommendation would have to be that you verify confidentiality with them. This can be as simple as making it the first question you ask when calling.

Can I Start the Treatment Process at the Time of My Call?

Yes, you can. When calling our 24-hour talk hotline for alcohol abuse, our goal is to find a course of treatment that will meet your unique situation. If you are calling a toll-free local or national addiction hotline, they may or may not assist you in finding treatment. If treatment is what you seek, we are here to help.
