He wants to talk to a RA..anyone have any suggestions?

Hey guys. As many know my husband is still drinking right now, but he will be going into rehab hopefully tomorrow. Long story on why he couldn't go today..not really long, just long enough for a separate thread. Anyway, he is finally ready to get into recovery, but he is having to jump through some hoops. (I know that sounds codie, but I promise it isn't). Anyway, he was asking me if I knew of any RA he could talk to, like right now. Just to talk..and of course I don't know anyone in recovery personally..what can he do? Any ideas? He's feeling very lonely..says he feels like there is no hope. Thanks in advance.

On our local AA group website there's a number that people can call if they just want to talk. Maybe he could try that?

That is the hotline number for AA in Illinois. Someone there can help him.
