    Hello there! I am currently doing a class project in which we are discussing the way a family copes when their adolescent child is abusing the use of alcohol. I would like to gain more insight as to better help my community. If you have a child that is or has abused alcohol in the past, I would really appreciate your help. You can directly answer below or inbox me personally. Thank you in advanced for your time and help.

    Q1: How do you think the alcohol abuse affected your relationships?

    Q2: Do you feel there were any factors that could have prevented the alcohol abuse?

    Q3: What helped you and your family overcome and adapt to your stressor situation?

    @MV1990 hi there.

    1. Put distance between us.
    2. Hmm. Yes, not divorcing could have helped...
    3. Kind of still there... I have found the book Beyond Addiction: How Science and Kindness Helps People Change helps a lot of parents with addicted children.

    Hope this helps!
