Three focuses of therapy will be reviewed in this paper. Alcoholism is viewed as a disease and family members also have the disease of "codependence" (Cermak, 1986).
Recovering addicts often share how previous relationships during their drinking and drug use days were tumultuous and unhealthy.
Many times, both partners were drinking and doing drugs, or one was using while the other acted as an enabler.
Abstinence may be as hard or even harder than drinking for the alcoholic because it reveals so many problems that were obscured by the family's focus on alcohol.
Denial remains as strong as ever as the family has to face the harsh realities of delusion, illusion and collusion that have dominated its reality during drinking and that are now revealed during the period of abstinence.
