Bottling it up: the next generation - the effects of parental alcohol misuse on children and families
Updated report on the 2006 Bottling it Up report, which analysed the views and perspectives of parents using Turning Point services, and of their children. The research found that parental alcohol misuse has a big impact on families.
It is based on the experiences of children and their parents. Turning Point analysed anonymous data relating to the thousands of people who used its alcohol treatment services in the last year.
100 parents who currently access these services for alcohol-related issues were surveyed, and spoke to other parents in more depth to gather their views on how they felt alcohol had affected their children.
