I want to thank all of you who tuned in to our show last night on families and addiction. A lot of time is spent discussing the addict and the addiction itself, but not enough time is spent on family and friends of the addict.
It is generally accepted that every addict effects at least four people, and Gary and Dr. Croft, HealthyPlace’s Medical Director, went over a vast amount of information for those affected by addiction.
As with all our shows, you can watch it on-demand, in case you missed any important information or want to share the show with friends.
If you would like more information about Al-Anon, a fellowship for those affected by Alcoholism, visit their website at http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/english.html. They are also available during business hours by phone: (757) 563-1600. Al-Anon will put you in touch with a local support group.
You can also join the HealthyPlace Support Network absolutely free, where you can chat with others who may be going through the same thing as you. Our support network has been growing exponentially and with members like you, we can create a really positive online support group so that no one has to suffer in silence.
Thank you for helping to grow the new HealthyPlace.com and HealthyPlace TV. We have so many great things planned for the show, and we could not do it without you! I always enjoy hearing your comments and questions, and I try to personally respond to all messages. Please feel free to contact me by email, Producer AT healthyplace.com.
