For families of alcoholics, as well as for the alcoholics themselves, feelings of shame, guilt and grief can become very powerful. Read these articles about Family as it relates to Alcohol Addiction, Treatment for Alcoholism, and the Addiction Recovery process.

Involving one’s family in the recovery plan can help one stay sober. Talk to the family about the journey and what they expect to accomplish to enjoy sobriety. Let them know that recovery won’t happen overnight and that they have to learn how to be patient. Also, they need to have realistic expectations and take each day as it comes.
