Are you one of the millions of Americans who will drink excessively to celebrate New Year's Eve? Are you planning on driving to the party? Well, you may be in luck. If you’re a member of AAA, give them a call and they’ll tow your drunken ass home for free. AAA’s complimentary new service, "Tipsy Tow," offers drivers who are no longer legally capable a free tow home at no additional charge. Members need only call a toll-free number (800-222-4357) and a tow truck will be dispatched to wherever their car may be. The only problem? Tipsy Tow is currently available only in Northern California, Texas, Nevada, Utah and parts of northern New England. It doesn't amount to a recommendation to throw caution to the wind, but it beats ringing in the New Year in handcuffs—or worse.

This exclusive Northern California rehab is all about client choice—as well as golf outings, Buddhist field trips and keeping up with the office.
