Alcoholism in families very common

by Jennifer

Hi there,

Did you know that 1 in 4 children in the United states will be exposed to alcoholism within their family by the time they are 18. I should know because I was one of them.

I'm one of the lucky ones, because my dad has been sober for 25 years. Not all children are so lucky.

I've helped to develop an infographic that details the struggles a child faces when their parent is an addict. I would love it if you could help spread the word!

If you're interested in sharing you can find the infographic in its entirety here:

I would be incredibly grateful to hear that you're helping spread the word.


All the best,

Jennifer
