Resources for Professionals

Alcoholism is a disease which is widespread and debilitating to all family members. We at Grand Rapids Al-Anon & Alateen Family Groups are trying to reach out to families and friends of alcoholics in our communities who need help. Alcoholism is often hidden. The problem is there; many times, neither the family nor the problem drinker will face or admit that it exists.

 

Please see the appropriate open letter below for information geared specificially to your profession. If you would like more information, please call 616-222-0632 or email us at info@aisgr.org. Al-Anon members are answering our phone 7 days a week.

 

Letter to Doctors
The relatives and friends of alcoholics often seek medical help for a variety of stress-related symptoms. If you suspect someone's drinking problem has contributed to the cause of your patient's symptoms, we urge you to recommend Al-Anon and/or Alateen as part of their treatment.
