Drowning in Drink: Alcohol Use and Abuse in Divorce with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen on Divorce & Beyond #231

Since April is Alcohol Abuse Awareness month, Susan visits with Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, The Divorce Doctor, about the risks, challenges and hardship that alcohol use disorder can wreak in the lives of individuals and families.  It's all about raising awareness, starting a conversation and letting you know you are not alone if you are struggling with substance abuse issues.

Our favorite therapist, Dr. Elizabeth Cohen a/k/a The Divorce Doctor, returns to speak with Susan about Alcohol Use Disorder, Alcoholism and more in this deeply personal episode.  Both Dr. Elizabeth and Susan have family histories of alcohol abuse and each share their own experience and insights to help you get curious about the role alcohol plays in your life and what to consider if you find it is a relationship that needs examining.  For those struggling with a family member or friend who is numbing out or more with alcohol, Dr. Elizabeth shares some tips on the path to wellness for them and for you.

We live in a society that glamorizes normalizes the use of alcohol for so many things - celebration, relaxation, de-stressing and more but when alcohol becomes a problem that same society shames and stigmatizes individuals.  It's time to shine the light, open the conversation, speak frankly and advance the dialogue so that we all can lead healthy lives - whether with alcohol or without!

Thriving in divorce and beyond means not having to worry about the safety of your children when it comes to co-parenting. With alcohol abuse on the rise, many co-parents are turning to the system committed to providing proof, protection, and peace of mind. Soberlink’s alcohol monitoring system is the most convenient, reliable, and reasonable way for a parent to provide evidence that they are not drinking during parenting time. Soberlink’s real-time alerts, facial recognition, and tamper detection ensure the integrity of each test, so you can be confident your kids are with a sober parent. With Soberlink, judges rest assured that your child is safe, attorneys get court-admissible evidence of sobriety, and both parents have empowerment and peace of mind. Pull back the curtain on the mysteries of parenting time and trust The Experts in Remote Alcohol Monitoring Technology™ to keep you informed and your kids safe and secure.
