What does everyone think about recovering from an alcohol addiction and going to anger management classes to better someone's problem. Do you think someone can fully recover and still have a good family life? What are some ways others have succeeded in dealing with blended families having to deal with custody issues because of the step parent having alcohol/violence problems in the home?

It would depend on the individual and whether or not they really want the help in order to recover from their addiction and to calm down. Sometimes medicine is given by a psychologist, though not always the right one which is why they always want to know how the medicine is effecting them and their life. I do believe it is possible to recover, but I understand it can be difficult and if the person doesn't have any support even more so difficult.
