With nearly half of all marriages ending in divorce, it may seem obvious that many marriage relationships could use a little help. So many factors can contribute to problems in a marriage. Bills, daily stress, and conflicting attitudes contribute to many marriage troubles. Drug and alcohol addictions can also play a large role in a marriage. Alcoholism can affect a marriage to the point where the marriage needs help. The person dealing with alcohol addiction may be a spouse in the marriage, or another family member. If you need marriage help to learn about and deal with someone in your family suffering from an alcohol addiction, there are some places to look for assistance.

First, if you are the person needing help with an alcohol addiction, take care of yourself and the addiction. Resources are available through Alcoholics Anonymous and many other organizations and clinics. If you have suspected your marriage needs help, it probably does. You will need to begin by helping yourself first. Taking the first step to recovery will create the best environment to help your marriage. You are not alone. Help for you and your family is available.

For family members of an alcoholic, Al-anon is a group devoted to support and help for the family. If your spouse has an alcohol addiction and it is affecting your marriage, seek help and support through Al-anon. Al-anon can provide information and support which will increase the chances of marital stability. Marriage help is available through education about addiction, support from others who are dealing with similar issues, and others who want to see your marriage succeed.

If your marriage needs help because of an alcohol addiction in one of your children, for example, Al-anon will provide the strength you need to help get through this tough time together. You and your mate will need support and possibly counseling to get through this difficult situation in your marriage. Help is available in your area. Avoid the thought that the child affected by alcohol addiction is the only person who needs help. Stress due to the alcoholism in the family can be devastating on a marriage. If your marriage is suffering, find the marriage help that you need. Your marriage deserves the effort.

Marriage help through your church or religious organization is often available for couples dealing with alcohol addiction in the family. Alcoholism often increases the likelihood of abuse which increases the need for marriage help. Speak to the clergy in your church to see if they offer counseling or other forms of marriage help.

Couples therapy can be a great way to stabilize your marriage during and after addictive behavior. Often couples therapy will help the marriage to improve and return to a higher level of intimacy and trust. Contact a therapist in your area to see if they offer marriage help. Talking to other couples who have gone through similar circumstances can be very helpful. Not only will the conversations be a help to your marriage, but they may be able to offer suggestions of someone to talk to for couples counseling.

Alcohol addictions can wreck a marriage if left untreated and unaddressed. Issues can arise between a couple that will tear the two apart, but with help, the marriage can survive. Knowing where to turn during your marital crisis is a relief in itself. Marriage help is available for families dealing with alcohol addiction.
