One of the most overlooked aspects of alcohol addiction in the #USA is the impact it has on our families and our loved ones. We all heard the phrase I Like beer too many time recently, but unfortunately, it does not stop at beer consumption and the problem extends to many alcoholics.

Family Recovery Specialists aims to educate families and incorporate them into the recovery process to build a strong support network for lasting sobriety.

Our results reveal current and historical trends in alcohol expenditures, and which demographics burn the most cash on getting buzzed.
