Hazardous drinking in the UK is widespread: 1 in 4 according to a recent government survey. More severe ‘alcohol dependence’ affects nearly 6% of the UK population – that’s 1.8 million people. But for each alcoholic there is usually a family – estimates suggest that at least 3 people per alcohol abuser suffer on this account. The loved ones of alcohol abusers are a neglected group, and this book is aimed at equipping them to care for themselves so that they can survive the difficulty before them. Written by a husband-and-wife team of an alcohol abuse expert and former alcoholic (John) and a former carer for an alcoholic (Lou), this helpful book is not only academically sound but also written with an empathy that flows from experience.
