The Need For AA Meetings in Oakland, California

Alcohol addiction is a hard thing to end. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings can be very helpful for many people in Oakland, California. Most people need outside help to stop drinking.

AA uses the term alcoholic. Most health groups are now using the term alcohol use disorder (AUD). AUD is considered a medical condition. It is when a person can not stop using alcohol even when there are bad consequences at work, socially, or in their health.

AUD can be mild, moderate or severe. Alcohol misuse like binge drinking can eventually turn into alcohol use disorder. It can be easy for any person to move from alcohol misuse to AUD.

Alcohol Use in Oakland, California

Oakland is part of Alameda county. The Healthy Alameda County website provides data on various health factors. Some alcohol use related statistics show:

  • In 2018 adults who shared that they had been binge drinking in the last 30 days was 16.8 percent in Oakland.
  • That is a little higher than the county rate of 16.5 percent.
  • Adults who were binge drinking one or more times in 2015 was 37.4 percent for Alameda county.

Every few years medical groups put together community health needs assessments(CHNA). The 2019 CHNA for the Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Oakland shared one alcohol related issue. Of the motor vehicle crash deaths in the area of the hospital, 30% were due to drunk driving.

The California Department of Public Health website gives information on various kinds of injuries by county. Alcohol-related injuries in Alameda county listed are:

  • Emergency department visits because of alcohol use in 2014 totaled 7204 cases.
  • Hospitalizations due to alcohol use in 2014 totaled at 1201 cases.
  • Deaths due to alcohol use (not drunk driving crashes) in 2013 totaled 166 cases.

Alcohol Rehab Options

Alcoholics Anonymous is a 12-step group led by individuals, and not by professionals. Going to a professional rehab facility is also an option. Many people have needed professional counseling to help them break the alcohol addiction cycle.

Another possibility to help in recovery would be to move into a sober living home. These are houses with rules to help people stay sober. People in alcohol addiction recovery can stay in a sober living home for as long as they need. They must follow the rules, and they do have to pay rent.

Traveling to Arizona For Alcohol Rehab

Sometimes the quickest way for a person struggling with alcohol problems to get the help they need is to leave town. Starting over in a fresh environment helps people create new habits. Avoiding places that encourage alcohol use can make recovery easier to get through.

Other reasons to travel for recovery include:

  • Finding a program that is covered by insurance
  • Privacy, getting help out of town keeps recovery more private
  • Avoiding bad influences
