There are several things you can do, if you notice someone either has an
alcohol addiction or is on their way to developing an alcohol addiction.
The first step is to talk with the person. Speak calmly and clearly, it's best if you do not try to talk to them when they are intoxicated. Let this person know how much you care about them and about what they are going through. . Alcoholics are usually victims of a life changing event, crime, or some sort of violent or traumatic experience. Let them know that they can talk to you and depend on you to be there for them. The next step is to address the problem. Express your concerns with the issue in hand. The two of you can work together to develop strategies and alternatives to dealing with the problem.
If the first two steps do not seem productive, speaking with another family
member may show more beneficial. The next step is to gather and compile
information. You can not help someone in this situation without knowing and
understanding exactly what it is he or she is going through. Consult a
specialist and research alcoholism. A specialist can assist you more effectively
on choosing the best care and give you the most practical advice on dealing with
a person who suffers from alcohol addiction.
Most importantly, always follow through. Do not attempt to help someone if you can not truly dedicate yourself for the long run. Simply tell someone who can. Alcoholism is an illness and the only way to eliminate an illness is to treat it.
