Addiction to Alcohol/family meetings with alcoholic


What is the name of a family or friends meeting, with an alcoholic to

try to get him/her to stop abusing themselves?

Dear Robert, I do not understand your question.  But if you want to have a family gathering for the purpose of helping an alcoholic in the family, I suggest you get the alcoholics to study - if he is motivated - the nutritional aspects of alcoholism, by getting him to read;

Why Alcoholics Drink

Alcoholism is a Treatable Disease

Drug Addiction is a Nutritional Disorder

What is Hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemic Diet
