How to cope with an alcoholic parent

A listener contacted the programme for advice on how to manage and support her 73-year-old father’s drink problem. What support is available for children with alcoholic parents? And is it possible to manage someone else’s addiction? Jane speaks to Tracy West of Nacoa, the National Association for Children of Alcoholics and Emma Spiegler, a Family Support Manager at Adfam, the charity for families affected by drugs and alcohol.
