Kist, never heard of such a place. HOWEVER: If he is discharged to a NH, someone can call AA for him (it will be listed in the phone book under Alcoholics Anonymous), explain the situation briefly, and ask for a 12-Step call. They will send someone with good sobriety to see him for a one-on-one meeting. Then they can set up something where an AA member will come every day, or X number of days a week, to meet with him. Once he meets with several people, he can ask one of them to be his sponsor. That will give him someone who will follow him and who he can call any hour of the day or night when he gets antsy, or just needs someone to talk to. AA can also do 12-Step calls while he is in the hospital.
It is up to the transplant program as to what they will accept. Maybe they will accept the sobriety he has had in the hospital, but I think the point is to see how long he can stay sober in the outside world--the litmus test for sobriety. It's not that hard to stay sober in a controlled environment, but once at home or in the outside world--it's a whole different story.
