Essentially, the daily obligations of motherhood must be taken into consideration when working with addicted women who have children at home. Failing to do so may in fact ensure that fewer women will enter into treatment programs. Enabling and Family Denial According to Sandmaier (1992), relatives, professionals, and friends are more willing and likely to see a woman’s issues as related more to a mental illness than to alcoholism. A woman’s alcoholism is seen as a secondary problem resulting in inappropriate diagnosis and care.

As kids develop, many parents or caregivers are unable to provide adequate support. Because of this, children minimize or ignore those attributes of difference, which ultimately contributes to emotional pain, denial, and fear (Cabaj, 2000). As these children enter adolescence and adulthood, the denial of self for many is overpowering. Over time, they have developed exceptional skills at denying true self, trying instead to constantly conform to familial as well as societal rules. Like many children raised in families where affirmation, acceptance, and love has been conditional, the use of alcohol and drugs certainly can provide feelings of relief to an otherwise anxious and emotionally separated individual.

These men were veterans of the treatment system and could cite chapter and verse from most AA literature sources.
