One of the most difficult challenges in life is trying to cope with a child’s problem with alcohol and drugs. Many people come to Al‑Anon for the support and understanding they need to handle this heart-breaking situation.
Al-Anon helps parents of problem drinkers
I came to Al-Anon because I was very angry at a young alcoholic. He is the son of the woman I am dating and he is making her life–and consequently mine–miserable. I wanted to learn how I could change him. I also wanted to understand what his mother was experiencing.
And because I wanted her to be happy, I needed to change her too.
