This week Growing Good takes on a serious subject that affects millions of people of all ages: alcoholism. This disease is a crippling part of many lives and does not only disrupt and degrade the health of the alcoholics but also the people around them who are left to pick up the pieces. But there is hope and there is help in the form of AA and Al-Anon. In this episode host Alessandra Maria-Iavarone is here to tell you about how you or someone you care about can get help through these programs. And remember you can always call 1-888-4AL-ANON for help. This important episode is sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.


"When we let go of the illusion of power over alcohol and other people we move into a more positive, productive and rewarding direction. We move toward hope."
