The impact of Alcoholism on children

Thursday, 17 November 2011. Posted in Miscellaneous

Alcoholism creates chaos in the lives of not only the alcoholic but also their family and friends. Perhaps what is forgotten is the impact that this chaos has on the children of alcoholic parents.

  • It is estimated that 2.6 million children in the UK are living with parents who are drinking hazardously and 705,000 are living with dependent drinkers
  • More than 100 children, including children as young as five, contact ChildLine every week with worries about their parent's drinking or drug use
  • Alcohol-related domestic violence increases the risks to children; alcohol plays a part in 25-33% of known cases of child abuse
  • Parental alcohol misuse has been identified as a factor in over 50% of child protection cases

There is a way out of the chaos that alcoholism creates and seeking treatment is the first step. But treatment should be offered to the family as well - to help them rebuild their lives and gain strength to move forward with their lives. At Clinical Partners we not only offer treatment for alcoholism and alcohol dependency but we also offer family and children counselling. Call Caroline, in our Clinical team on, 0203 326 9160 and she can help you further or read further about our treatment for alcoholism.
