Video: Mary and Geoff - BAC O’Connor, Alcoholism

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Inexcess Personal Stories:Mary and Geoff tell us about their son, a medic in the first Gulf conflict. Upon his return from the middle east, he was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. He struggled with the PTSD and eventually turned to drink, becoming an alcoholic.

Mary and Geoff believed they where alone in their burden, that no other families where in similar situations. Through their sons treatment at BAC O’Connor they saw that they where not alone in their task, they met other families going through the same problems and processes. They also, and most importantly, saw a remarkable change in their son as he began his recovery. This one is a must see for any families trying to help a loved one get their life back.
