Dr. G. :

Does she want help?

Customer:

I feel if I mention I will see that she could go somewhere where she can get professional help over a period of time away from her situation she might accept the offer.

Customer:

I have not rceived an answer.

Dr. G. :

Well that would be the first step and quite possibly the easiest step. If she is willing to go voluntarily then great. If she is unwilling then you might be at a loss.

Customer:

Would you kindly give me the name of a place that she could go to and get the help she needs?

Dr. G. :

Dr. G. :

Both. Copy and paste this website and you will see more center.

Dr. G. :

just click on it

Dr. G. :

did you get it

Customer:

How do I check out the rating on each place?

Dr. G. :

there is no particular rating. visit there websites and see if it meets her needs. the only requirment I would recommend is that she stay there for at least 30 days.

Customer:

I would tthink one would have better result than another. Am I wrong in this thinking?

Dr. G. :

It is going to come down to how much effort she puts in. Most substance abuse treatment centers offer the same curriculum. She can go to the top notch center and come out drinking again. It just depends on how much she wants to quit and if she follows the program.

Dr. G. :

you guys can visit those places and see which one she likes best

Customer:

Thank you for your help.

Dr. G. :

you are welcome
