Daddy Drinks Too Much - Al-Anon

This video was created for Northern Illinois Al-Anon Family Groups to help those who have grown up with alcoholism and the helping professional community understand the effects of alcoholism on families and a way to find help. It contains sharings from individuals who have experienced the effects of alcoholism and school counselors who have witnessed the effects on children within their schools. For more information in Illinois, visit www.niafg.org Outside of Illinois, visit www.al-anon.alateen.org "Alcoholism is a family disease. Every alcoholic affects at least four other people, including children, siblings, parents, spouses, partners, friends, and coworkers. Many people who were exposed to alcoholism in childhood find difficulties with relationships in their adult life. There are often problems with handling fear, anger, guilt, shame, and self-esteem issues. If you grew up affected by someone else's drinking, Al-Anon is a safe place to bring your concerns, your questions, and your desire to lead a better life. Whatever your problems, there are those in Al-Anon who have had them too. Together, we learn to face the past, to let go of it, and to lead happy, productive lives in the present."
