Help for Friends and Families
Are you concerned for a friend or family member that you think may have a problem with alcohol? How can you help?
If an individual’s drinking is causing you problems, or you have issues with an individual who drinks, then you can only suggest they approach A.A. If you are seeking help on how you deal with their drinking, then you should contact Al-Anon www.al-anon.org.nz. Al-Anon Family Groups consist of relatives and friends of alcoholics who, by banding together, can better solve their common problem.
