One good magazine to subscribe to is American Baby Magazine. This is a complete reference for new parents that covers all aspects of child care including infant and toddler care.

Hybrid Mom Magazine is for the busy working mom. It is for the lady who is a community worker, teacher and entrepreneur. It puts out four issues a year which is a bit disappointing.

How to Find a Rehab in Your Area

Finding in alcohol rehab facilities in your area does not have to be a challenge. This is particularly true of the secret, highly functional drinker who is smart enough to know he or she has a problem but does not want anyone to know about it. Guess what else? Some of the trickiest, secret drinkers are always going to be our teenage kids.

One of the simplest ways to find alcohol rehab facilities is to simply go online and do a search. Put in the name of the town or region that you are hoping to find help in and then search. There are also many comprehensive sites online that list all of the rehab centers in the United States by State and Region. Some specialize in helping adolescents and pre-teens with addiction problems of all kinds –including drinking.

If you do not wish, for reasons of staying private you can look up rehabs in an area where you might wish to go to recover in peace; far away from the usual pressures and family and social influences that may be causing you or your kid to drink in the first place.

It sounds absurdly simple but the plain truth is that most alcohol rehab facilities in your area will be listed in your local Yellow Pages. After you 'let your fingers do the walking' talk to someone at the facility to find out what a stay costs and what kind of treatment they offer.

It may seem painful to send your kid away for treatment but sometimes their best chance of getting well.

There are all kinds of health professionals that can recommend alcohol rehab facilities and detox units to people who are genuinely interested in recovering from their addiction. Psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and physicians of all kinds will generally have recommendations about what are the best alcohol rehab facilities in your area.

Many Al-Anon and A.A. meetings are held in churches and most priests or pastors are more than willing to recommend alcohol facilities that may have helped other people in your community who were in need of help with an addiction.

The bottom line is you should never be hesitant to seek help for your drinking problem or be shy about asking for resources to help you find the alcoholic rehab facilities that you need. You should also get immediate help for a kid who has a drinking problem. It is their best chance of getting well.
