Alcoholism: A Family Disease

Alcoholism is a disease that affects millions of people in the United States. Unfortunately, alcoholism affects more than just the person afflicted with the disease. It also directly influences the people closest to them, such as their family or children.

The statistics are shocking when it comes to how alcoholism can influence the entire family. Not only are children of alcoholics more likely to become alcoholics themselves, they’re also more likely to experience negative emotions. These emotions can include feelings of depression, helplessness, and low self-esteem.

Because alcoholism makes such a negative impact on the entire family, it’s important to include them in the recovery process. A family support group can give everyone influenced by alcoholism a place to heal.
