« An exploration of the effects of alcoholism on family members and its ability to influence multiple areas in one’s life would be beneficial in order to facilitate the most effective social work intervention. Four people who were raised in alcoholic families were interviewed at Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services. They were interviewed to establish how they had been affected as a result of their childhood experience. They were asked to describe the effects of their formative years by discussing in what ways they were affected in later life, what their coping styles were, what the physical/emotional effects were of the chosen coping style, who they spoke to about their experiences, if they had enough time to be a kid and how their past experience influenced their decision regarding choice of partner. The data collected from the interviews revealed a significant support of the literature. Participants disclosed ways in which they continue to be affected as adults as a result of being raised in an alcoholic family. All seemed to suggest that their childhood experiences influenced them to choose a partner who were alcoholic or unavailable to them in other ways, have difficulty with relationships in general, adhere to maladaptive coping mechanisms as well as have physical /emotional effects as a result of the chosen coping style. » (abstract)
