    http://www.alcoholics-anonymous.org.uk/ - 08457697555

    http://www.ukna.org/ 03009991212 - Alcohol is classified as a drug and if there are no AA meetings near you you can attend NA meetings instead.

    If you are in the Midlands there is a group called Aquarius http://www.aquarius.org.uk/ 01216228181.

    Many local health trusts have what is called an A-Team who offer support and counseling try giving them a call or ask your gp about it.

    Domestic Violence:

    New 24-hour National Domestic Violence helpline

    Thousands of women experiencing domestic violence will benefit from a new national domestic violence helpline. The groundbreaking new service is backed by grants from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and Comic Relief. It will be run by a partnership of leading domestic violence agencies, Women's Aid and Refuge.

    The 24-hour freephone number is:

    0808 2000 247

    The helpline will provide access to 24-hour emergency refuge accommodation, as well as an information service, including safety planning and translation facilities to thousands of women who suffer at the hands of an abusive partner.

    The new helpline will join together the Refuges' and Women's Aid existing helpline numbers to provide a single and unique freephone service. It builds on the charities' support services for women and children experiencing domestic violence.

    The Government is committed to tackling domestic violence, an abhorrent crime which kills 2 women a week. This vital new national helpline will help ensure the safety of thousands of women and children who are in danger at home because of a violent partner. Women at risk will be able to get the help they need, when they need it, quickly, safely, and around the clock.

    A useful tip for when calling samaritans. If you Google samaritans in your local area it gives you the local number. I have done this when calling from my mobile because the 0845 number is expensive on mobiles. Suzi can you add samaritans to your list above. Thanks

    Hi I also text Samaritans as find it easier than talking
    Remember to enjoy the good we must experience the bad
    To know happiness we must know sadness.
    Even when rock bottom there is always that glimmer of light and we can all find it.

    This is the organization who put me in touch with the sanctuary. They offer a four day stay where you are assessed and they can also refer you to other placs who can help.
