A new podcast from Al-Anon Family Groups entitled "Did we cause our loved one to drink?" shares firsthand knowledge from men and women who have been affected by a loved one's drinking, according to Nicolette Stephens, information analyst for Al-Anon Family Groups' World Service Office. "The podcast, which focuses on the question so many people worry about, but are afraid to ask," Stephens said, "is free at www.Al-AnonFamilyGroups.org."
Look on the Al-Anon home page under "First Steps to Recovery in Al-Anon."
Stephens explained, "One of the reasons people isolate is they are afraid the drinking is their fault, and they don't want anyone to find out. Podcasts offer families a way to try the anonymous and confidential support they can receive at local Al-Anon or Alateen meetings." Stephens said, "The same fear that causes people to isolate can create a strong bond of recovery between those who have been in the same situation."
The series of six podcasts from Al-Anon Family Groups addresses fears many people have in common when their loved one has a problem with alcohol. A subscription to all six podcasts is available at no charge. Al-Anon Family Groups is a nonprofit organization that has been helping families and friends of people who have a drinking problem since 1951.
