Specifically, social workers assist families by making referrals for alcohol and drug assessments, inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, family therapy, and support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous
What is the success rate of these programs? They DO NOT work... People with addiction problems need one on one help so they can understand their situation and what's going on i in their heads, and how they are impacting their children....
The groups give them a swamp/ place to dwell. With Lillian, it was a place for her to feel sorry for herself and for others to "comfort" her. When she came home, we were the bad guys for not understanding.
- programs are not a one size fit all. If they work at all.
