Recognizing Alcohol & Drug Addiction : Destructive Addicts


Hi, my name is John DePalma from New York
City on behalf of Expert Village I’m here today to help you recognize drug and alcohol
addiction. We’re talking about ways that we can get an addict or an alcoholic the help
they need and there are extreme cases where someone is so far gone and so addicted or
so much an alcoholic that they may be destructive to themselves and others. They might break
things around the house, they might steal, they might just be an overall nuisance. In
which case sometimes you might have to get the law involved. This is not the way we’d
like to approach this, we would always like to give the addict the another chance to do
it on their own, but this is another way to get them the help that they need. You know
the treatment that they need and sometimes getting them put into a program possibly is
the only recourse.
