Addiction Interventions | What Happens to the Kids?


The hardest part when
you’re talking to a family about an alcoholic is
when they have children. When I hear children are involved, I’m almost not even doing
it for the alcoholic. I’m doing it for their kids because I know what those
kids are going through. If you don’t wanna help
the alcoholic, then don’t, but at least get the kids
outta that environment. The longer those kids
are in that environment, the more guilt they have,
the more shame they’ll get, the more voids they’ll have in their life. You’re just setting up an environment for potentially them being
alcoholics themselves later. At bare minimum, they’re gonna
end up in intensive therapy growing up in this environment. And as a professional, I’m still a human, and when kids are involved, I just can’t see how
families wait even a day to do anything when
there’s children involved, especially young ones. You know, they’re being verbally abused, sometimes physically abused. Dad’s never there. You know, families, if nothing else, should be doing it for the children.
