Addiction to alcohol or other drugs takes a heavy toll on families, including the loving relationship between a parent and young child. Children’s counselors Jerry Moe and Helene Photias join host William C. Moyers to discuss the impact of a loved one’s alcoholism or other drug addiction from a child’s perspective. Learn why addiction is described as a family disease, what kinds of help and support are most effective, and how to involve children in the recovery process.
