Breaking the Cycles at The Discovering Alcoholic

Rona Renner, RN., hosts a weekly radio show, Childhood Matters, that reaches many communities in the San Francisco/Bay Area, Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, as well as Northern, CA. Her December 13 show was on Secondhand Drinking. I was one of her guests for the program, along with Juliana Nunez-Saksa, clinical psychologist at Kaiser’s Center for Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Program (CDRP) in San Francisco, CA. Here was the program description:

When a parent is an alcoholic or abuses alcohol, there are serious consequences for children of all ages. Both during the holidays and throughout the year, alcohol abuse is encouraged by social events, advertising, other media, and a need for stress-relief. Nurse Rona and guests address this serious issue whose wide-ranging social effects transcend socioeconomic boundaries.
