Our expert says:
Some people are well suited by AA, but others just can't find it fits them. And as alcoholics are so skilled at finding ways of persuading themselves that they're not really alcoholic, and " not like those guys " this can be a disadvantage at times.
You might try calling AA, none the less, as they might know of any OTHER NGO or other source of free or low-cost help. I can't think of one. There are rehab facilities, but except for a few which he might similarly find objectionable, run by the state, they also cost money. There are useful counsellors and psychologists / shrinks who might help, but again, they generally don't assist free of charge ( nor could they afford to do so ). FAMSA, Lifeline or suchlike might know of acilities and costs in your particular area.
