Attorney Tricia Dwyer is rated 'Superb' year after year
Alcohol and other Drug use, abuse, & addiction (including Active Alcoholism) occur in a subset of people. Genetics plays a big role, but there are many other circumstances & events that may be a part of a person's active addiction, for example, teen or adult may be in close contact with active addicts, such as family, friends. I plan to write more on this subject. I support healthy 12 Step groups.
