Alcoholism is often a secret disease, as the majority of the damage a family endures takes place behind closed doors. While families might struggle on a daily basis, they put on a brave face for the world, as though nothing was wrong.
Even so, people who drink sometimes engage in behaviors that spill out of the private sphere into public spaces. At times, that behavior breaks specific laws, and when police officers get involved, the family might be asked to deal with very troubling and serious legal issues, many times in public.
It can be a scary time, but with help, families may emerge from these challenges intact, and they may come to regard the issue as the turning point at which their fragile family began to heal.
It is that time of the year that a lot of us find our way to the fellowship through the criminal justice system.
