Overview

Alcohol is a killer. It wrecks kidneys and careers. It leaves trails of shattered individuals, notably family members.

Janet Woititz contends that not enough attention has been given to the families of alcoholics. She holds that alcoholics may recover, but that families may not. This simplification dooms the family into a repeat performance of the disaster, and as often as not, children of alcoholics become alcoholics themselves.

In her introduction the author explains that "a family that comes to grips with the problem can play an important part in the recovery of the alcoholic. But the family's own recovery should be treated separately. That is what this book is about...how families of alcoholics can help themselves."
