An Open Letter to a Lawyer

 
   

Dear Counselor:

 

Alcoholism is a disease which is widespread and debilitating to families. We at Al-Anon Family Groups are trying to reach out to families who need help. Alcoholism is often hidden. The problem is there; many times, neither the family nor the problem drinker will face or admit that it exists.

When clients come to you for a divorce, a restraining order, or help with delinquent children, you become their counselor in many aspects of their lives. If you suspect your client is or has been affected by a problem drinker, we suggest you or your client contact Al-Anon Family Groups. Many families have taken their initial steps towards recovery through their attorney's recommendation to contact Al-Anon/Alateen.

We are most grateful for your professional awareness and understanding of our program. We recognize that you are in a unique position to refer your clients to Al-Anon Family Groups. If you wish more information, please contact Al-Anon Family Grups of Southeastern Wisconsin at 414-257-2415 or alanon@alanon-wi.org.
