Child with alcohol dependent parent

Parental alcohol dependence often co-exists with a range of other problems, such as family disharmony, conflict and violence (Children’s Commissioner, 2012). 

In recognition of this, the Government has recently put forward new funding to help local authorities provide fast access to support and mental health services for children and their families where there is a dependent drinker.

Tavistock Relationships trains practitioners in Behavioural Couples Therapy for Alcohol Dependence, which is recommended by NICE (2011) for people who have a regular partner and whose partner is willing to participate in treatment.
