Will Al-anon benefit me?

by Dena

I am the adult child of alcoholic grandparents. My Mother is severely depressed and an extreme narcissist. These have factored in to myself having low self esteem, acute trust issues, and being extremely insecure. I also have been treated for depression issues.

My main concern is the constant over thinking and feeling that it’s “always my fault”! The lose of my father 9 months ago seems to have made this worse. People, my therapist included feel Al-anon will benefit me.

Please I need advise.

Al-anon a good program for any of us struggling with family issues


by: Debbie Wicker


Dear Dena,

Your relationship with you mom sounds very difficult and hurtful for you. Al-anon is a 12 step program that helps us to understand ourselves and our family better, so I agree that you would benefit from attending Al-anon regularly.

I would also recommend you consider a Christian program called Celebrate Recovery or CR.

CR helps people to learn to manage the hurts and harms that they’ve experienced in their lives and teaches them how to live a life empowered by the fruits of the Spirit:

Love, faith, hope, joy, kindness, gentleness, goodness, patience, and self-control

Learning how to build these traits into your daily life makes dealing with the emotional difficulties of others more manageable.

Hope this helps,

Debbie
