Alcoholism causes physical and emotional health problems. The person with alcohol and/or drugs addiction experiences the brunt of the physical problems, but people who are close to them often share the emotional side effects of the person’s addiction. Family members of alcoholics can experience anxiety, depression and shame related to their loved one’s addiction. Family members may also be the victims of emotional or physical outbursts. A person addicted to alcohol may try to shield their family from the impact of alcohol abuse by distancing themselves. Unfortunately, isolation does little to protect family members from the financial and emotional side effects of alcoholism. Neglect can also have a negative impact on loved ones. Alcohol abuse and alcoholism can have devastating impacts on families. Children of alcoholics may be at risk for academic and psychiatric problems. Therapy and counselling can aid families affected by alcohol abuse issues.
