Drug and Alcohol Addiction Q & A Forum: Ask the Expert

Welcome to this Drug and Alcohol Addiction Q & A Forum and Ask the Expert Feature on This is the place to have all your alcoholism or drug addiction related questions answered.

drug and alcohol addiction forum The idea behind this forum though is not only for you to ask questions and rely on the answers we provide – but to jump in and use also use the knowledge and experience you’ve gained in dealing or coping with alcoholism or drug addiction - to help provide answers and feedback to others using the comments section.

Because there is no one correct or definitive answer for anything – so it helps greatly to have differing viewpoints via a range of well-thought out and balanced set of answers. And ultimately this is a forum where we want to create a sense of community whereby everyone is involved and participates.

The Forum has been divided into the following three categories for ease of use and reference. Most questions fall into one of these three categories - so when browsing you should more easily be able to find other questions you can identify with. Pick the section that most closely resembles your situation - and there'll you be able to submit your question and read answers to questions already asked.

1. The Drug and Alcohol Addiction Questions Area is for you if you're personally struggling with Alcoholism or Drug Addiction.

2. The Addiction and Alcoholism Effects on Family Area is the place to go if you're the husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or family member of someone who has got a drug or alcohol problem.

3. The Drug Alcohol Help Parents Section is where you go to submit your question if your son or daughter is struggling with an addiction to alcohol or drugs.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction Q & A Forum Guidelines:

  • If you’ve asked a question – reciprocate and pay it forward by taking the time to comment on someone else's question. Every bit of encouragement helps.
  • Please provide detailed and well-thought out questions. One-liners or really short questions, and those with poor spelling and grammar won’t be published. The more detail you provide about your background, current circumstances and the nature of the problem - the better.
  • When making comments on someone elses post - all we ask is that you 'speak' your truth – but always do so with respect and ‘speak’ in a way you would like to be ‘spoken to.’
  • All attempts will be made to provide an initial answer to questions within 24 hours. However depending on the volume of questions submitted and the occasional unforeseen circumstance this will not always be possible. So please be patient.
  • Remember that the information on this website is for information purposes only and should not be seen to replace medical advice from a qualified medical practitioner. Please check our disclaimer page for clarification should you wish.

My hope for this drug and alcohol addiction Q & A forum is it for it to become a safe and encouraging community where we support each other in the fight against addiction. It would also be fantastic if you go on to tell your story on the Addiction and Alcoholism Stories page. Sharing and reading stories is something that truly binds us all together.

May this turn into a place where we can all benefit and learn from each other.

God Bless
