Thanks to Grandpa Bob, i would like to know if there are some of us who have joined this programmes or their closed people and friends did it. No, i am not alcoholic. Just think can the group support be healing or are there situations of co-dependency? In fact this is a way of psyhoterapy. Do you think that the anonymousity there is the key factor? Why this is not a usual practice after some time to come with somebody from your family? Dont you think that a friendly support from member of your family is better then the anonymous member, who actually dont care so much about you? Are there also groups for people who dont know how to react to their relaitive, spouse and etc`s alcohol dependency? And what are your advices for people who suffer of their drank relative, spouse? Just to visit A.A? Or something more?

I think they do have a support group for family members. I'm not very familiar with it, but from what I've heard it is a very successful and helpful program.
