I am Mom of adult, married, father, alcoholic, son.

Son has been in and out of recovery and active alcoholism this year. Hubby and I have attended meetings for families. Need to be a part of a group for Moms and Dads and Grandparents of adult married children. Have read lots of books, benefited from meetings, but long for a more narrow support group for families - parents of adults that are married. Help.
Progress not perfection ❤️

Welcome! Having an alcoholic or drug user in our lives affects all of us in different but the same ways.

Here's a link to the Friends and Family section here on this site, in case you want to take a look over there.

Here's a more focused subforum...it may not get a lot of traffic, though:

Family Members of Addicts and Alcoholics (Parents, Sons and Daughters, Siblings)

Hi -

Welcome to SR. There is a forum here on SR as bb mentioned. I believe that we have several members who have older children with substance issues.

Do you have a local AA chapter that you can call to ask about specific meetings in your area for that type of group & if not how you might start a group specifically for people who share your situation?

Hope you get the support you need.
