From Survival to Recovery
Growing Up in an Alcoholic Home
From Survival to Recovery takes an accurate and ‘in depth’ look at what it’s like to grow up in an alcoholic/dysfunctional family.
As children they lived with the alcoholism of their parents or others. As adults they tended to behave as though they still were living in an alcoholic home – desperately seeking attention, yearning for affection, trying to be incredibly good, and miserably failing. They were not free to do otherwise – until they came to Al-Anon.
Here, Al-Anon adult children tell their stories. This book explores the long-term effects of being raised with alcoholism and how Al-Anon can help.
