The Effects of Alcoholism on the Family
Alcoholism can be devastating for families. It has been referred to as the “family disease” because the effects of alcoholism can lead to dysfunctional behaviors and roles within a family and for the person suffering from alcoholism. It has even been linked to domestic violence and the loss of careers or homes. Approximately one in every four families struggles with alcoholism or alcohol abuse. Unfortunately many families feel the need to hide their struggles with alcoholism due to shame, embarrassment or even out of denial of the problem. It can affect families of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.
Are you the spouse of someone suffering from alcoholism?
If you are the spouse or partner of someone suffering from alcoholism you do not have to hide your struggle. You are not alone. Approximately 76 million American adults have been exposed to alcoholism within the family. Many times the spouses of alcoholics are in denial over the severity of their partner's problem or they are afraid to confront their partner about their alcoholism due to fear of how their partner will react. Commonly the spouse of an alcoholic may blame themselves for their partner's alcohol abuse or feel guilt over not being able to rectify their struggles with alcohol. This can lead the spouse or partners of alcoholics developing feelings of shame, guilt and often depression. If your partner is struggling with alcohol addiction it is not your fault, but you can help them overcome their addiction.
Are your children the victims of alcoholism?
Children of alcoholics are four times more likely to struggle with alcohol or chemical dependency in their lifetimes than any other group of people. It can affect their roles within the family unit and may lead to children feeling the need to be overly responsible or mature in order to maintain order in their lives. It can also lead to children repressing their emotions and becoming socially or emotionally withdrawn. If your children are experiencing problems due to alcoholism within the family there is help out there for them.
