Where do alcoholics go for help?

I am worried about my mom. She has such a great job and kids to take care of, but she is really struggling with her drinking problem. I think she might have to go somewhere to get better. What are some of the options she can consider?

It makes me sad to hear about your mom because I was in the same boat as you once. It’s a challenging thing to go through but I’m hear to tell you there is a chance she can get better, like my own mom did five years ago. There’s two main types of rehab: inpatient and outpatient. In an inpatient program, your mom would stay for anywhere from 30 to 60 or even 90 days. With little if any outside communication and influence, she will participate in a strict schedule of detox (if necessary), counseling and life skills training. She would get a similar experience in an outpatient center, but she would come home every day and would need to be strong enough to avoid the temptations of alcohol in the outside world.
