What is an Alcohol Treatment Hotline?
Alcohol hotlines and addiction helplines exist specifically to provide free help for alcohol addiction. While different organizations have different overall goals, the primary goal for each is to offer the help the caller is seeking. The focus of our 24-hour alcohol hotline is to better understand the specific situation you are faced with. We offer treatment programs such as detoxification and rehabilitation, but to suggest any course of action, the first step is understanding.
When Should You Call a Drinking Helpline
First and foremost, if the situation is life-threatening please call 9-1-1 immediately.
While helplines on a national level can provide valuable assistance, it is only local emergency resources that can properly assess and take action when there is immediate danger of harming oneself or others.
If it is not a life-threatening emergency, the time to call is when the addict or loved one realizes it is time to take action toward rehabilitation and recovery. Our 24-hour-a-day, 7-days-a-week alcohol hotline is there for those in such a position.
If I Call, What Questions Will They Ask?
Questions asked will vary depending upon which recovery hotline or helpline you call. When calling The Recovery Village’s 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. Questions will focus on:
- Verifying that you or the 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 you or the individual is ready to start treatment for their addiction
- If our programs offer a suitable course of treatment
If I Call, Is the Conversation Confidential?
The Recovery Village’s 24-hour, alcohol abuse 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 Detox & Rehab 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.
What are the Benefits of Calling an Alcohol Rehab Helpline?
We know that making the decision to seek help for an addiction is critical, one that shouldn’t be hindered by limited business hours. And perhaps you first need counseling before making the decision to seek treatment for your addiction. That’s why we’re pleased to offer our 24-hour free counseling hotline.
Hundreds of former alcoholics have called our alcohol crisis hotline and are now sober as a result. We are proud to be one of the thousands of free addiction helplines in the country responsible for helping addicts get a second chance at life. Please feel free to contact our toll-free counseling hotline if you need someone to talk to about your addiction.
