Is your loved one an alcoholic?
Without treatment, a person addicted to alcohol will deteriorate and eventually will end up incarcerated, insane or dead.
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, your loved one may be struggling with alcohol addiction:
√ Can your loved one stop after consuming 1 or 2 drinks?
√ Has he or she suffered any consequences from drinking, such as job loss, DWI, or broken relationships?
√ Does he or she drink in secret and attempt to hide the evidence?
√ Does he or she have a high tolerance for alcohol
Addiction is a family disease. It can be hugely devastating. It affects all aspects of the family’s life. Everything from relationships, to finances, physical, emotional and mental health.
Often, an alcoholic person will do anything to obtain or use alcohol including stealing money, prescription medications, or household items.
