Al-Anon Speaks for Itself Part 1
A wife, father, husband, and daughter describe what it is like to love someone who has a drinking problem.
The wife says, “I didn’t live in reality at all. I covered up and made believe.”
The father says, “When the police came and told me the charges against my son, it was unbelievable. To see my son taken away in handcuffs was the most difficult day of my life.”

My name is Meredith Draper and I am a doctoral student working on my dissertation in the Counseling Psychology Program at the University of Texas. I am currently collecting data for a study that involves examining how factors from our families of origin impact how we approach relationships as adults.
