The Alcoholic Family in Recovery : A Developmental Model

The Alcoholic Family in Recovery : A Developmental Model

Description

Family relationships change dramatically when one or more members stops drinking. Far from offering a ""quick fix"" to family problems, in fact, the first years of sobriety are often marked by continuing tension that fuels marital stress, acting-out kids, and difficulties at work. This book explores the process of recovery from addiction as it affects the entire family, presenting an innovative model for understanding and treating families navigating this difficult period. The authors draw upon extensive clinical and research experience to demonstrate how families can be helped to regroup after abstinence, weather periods of emotional upheaval, and find their way to establishing a more stable, yet flexible, family system.
