Having Grown Up With A Parent In The Throes Of Addiction, Or Who Got Physically Sober But Perhaps Not Emotionally So, You Know The Ravages Of Addiction Firsthand. Through Counseling, Self-Help Groups, Or Classic Books Such As Adult Children Of Alcoholics, You May Have An Understanding Of How The Patterns And Behaviors Associated With Addiction Play Out Within Families, But Applying That Knowledge To Your Own Approach To Relationships And Parenting Is Another Story.

In Unwelcome Inheritance, Lisa Sue Woititz Combines Her Own Insights With The Unpublished Contributions Of Her Late Mother, The Early Leader In The Adult Children Of Alcoholics (ACOA) Movement, Dr. Janet Woititz, Uncovering How Multiple Generations Of People Affected By Addiction Continue To Enable Their Children's Substance Abuse And How, Without Realizing It, They Continue To Model The Addictive Behaviors Learned From Their Own Parents. These ACOA Pioneers Then Bring To Light These Hidden Behavior Patterns--Including Impulsivity, Misplaced Loyalty, People Pleasing, Insecure Parenting Styles, And Multiple Compulsive And Addictive Behaviors--So That You Can Take A Clear Look At How You Got To This Point. Additional Points Of Inquiry, Illustrated By Stories From The Trenches Of The ACOA Movement, Help You Explore What You Can (And Can't) Do To Help Your Children, Your Children's Children, And Yourself Lead Healthy, Balanced Lives.
