Description

What is it like to go through alcohol withdrawal at home? What is it like for a mother to sit by her son’s side while he goes through withdrawal and supporting him? Why does someone who doesn’t have any particular reason to drink misuse alcohol? The answers to these questions can be found by listening to a narrative from one patient and his mother about his descent into alcohol misuse, his experiences with withdrawal, and his eventual overcoming of a dreadful alcohol addiction.
