Alcoholic Support Systems in an Alaskan Community
It is generally accepted that alcohol has a major impact on not only the drinker, but on the total family. The abuse and misuse of this drug affects interactions with all significant others--with all social relationships. However, despite this knowledge of the impact of alcohol misuse on all who come in contact with the alcoholic and/or problem drinker, there is not much information available to the public concerning the social support systems that tend to perpetuate this addiction.
