Abstract

Family members of problem drinking relatives often experience high levels of chronic stress and pervasive negative effects on their own functioning, health and wellbeing. The Al-Anon Family Groups offer support to individuals who have been affected by the problem drinking of a relative or friend. We incorporated the Coping Questionnaire into a cross-sectional survey to examine the experiences and coping styles of 25 Al-Anon attending family members in Australia. Based on comparative scores reported by seven previous studies, our findings indicated significantly more adaptive coping by family members who attended Al-Anon.
