Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACoA)
Being affected by the cycle of addiction is devastating.
During the last 30 years a great deal of research has been gathered by families as they gather to assist the member suffering from addiction. Discoveries have been made about distinct issues experienced by children that were raised in an alcoholic home. This group will focus on recovering your identity and healing the blocked paths to self understanding.
Research has shown that several common traits of personality are molded in a special way by living with an alcoholic parent. Some children of alcoholics feel that the bad things that happened to them were deserved and the good things that happened to them were either mistakes or accidents. These adult children will acquire the characteristics of alcoholics, even if they never drink themselves. They can be in denial, develop poor coping strategies, have an inability to problem solve, and form dysfunctional relationships. Often they are more comfortable living in chaos than in peace.
