Alcoholism is a disease, which is widespread and debilitating to families. We at Al-Anon Family Groups are trying to reach out to families who need help. Alcoholism is often hidden. The problem is there; many times, neither the family nor the problem drinker will face or admit that it exists.
When clients come to you for a divorce, a restraining order, or help with delinquent children, you become their counselor in many aspects of their lives. If you suspect your client is or has been affected by a problem drinker, we suggest you or your client contact Al-Anon Family Groups. Many families have taken their initial steps towards recovery through their attorney's recommendation to contact Al-Anon/Alateen.
Please visit our web site at http://www.DallasAl-Anon.org for material you may use to assist your clients who are affected by someone else's drinking. It explains Al-Anon's role in helping the friends and families of alcoholics.
We are most grateful for your professional awareness and understanding of our program. We recognize that you are in a unique position to refer your clients to Al-Anon Family Groups. If you wish more information, please contact Dallas Al-Anon/Alateen Information Service at 214-363-0461, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
