ALCOHOLISM / DRUG ADDICTION AND FAMILY HELP
Alcoholism and drug addiction is an incurable and fatal disease. There is no cure other than a daily reprieve by not drinking or using, one day at a time. The hopelessness, depression and discontent that a suffering alcoholic/addict endures injures not only himself/herself, but everyone around the addict. Drunk driving, suicide, lost wages, the negative effects on the human body and mind, etc. also threaten the love, friendship and interpersonal relationships surrounding the addict.
Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon have helped millions of individuals and family members connected to the disease of drug and alcohol abuse.
