Finding help is easy; there are books, psychologist, doctors, clinics and family. The real help comes from the alcoholic, what he is willing to do to make things normal for his family. What he is willing to give up to bring some sanity to himself and his family. If they donít want to quit its all just a waste of time. I hate to say this but it really is up to them. You canít change them, only they can. Below are some links to some books that may help you confront the problem and deal with it.
