Alcohol attacks body and mind, takes away peace of mind, shatters careers, and upends families. This wicked liquid also opens the door to avarice and is the catalyst in a litmus test to identify true friends.
Tailored to address the alcohol addict who is in denial of the affliction and the sufferer who is crying out for help, Dinter seeks to open hearts and extend a helping hand to the alcohol addict whose life has taken a turn toward the abyss. The column, supported by Dr. Dinter’s resourceful research, also appeals to families, friends, acquaintances, and colleagues with tips, information and answers to questions.
The destructive power of alcohol muscles into the headlines with abundant frequency as celebrities like Mel Gibson and Robin Williams face their battle with the bottle. With alcoholism often made the scapegoat when headlines reveal indiscretions, accidents, or worse, society is asked to understand and accept. That alone reveals the awesome significance of alcohol addiction in the public eye. But there’s also the courage of admission while in the public spotlight that serves as a motivational impetus for the afflicted to do it — fight the abuse dilemma — and those on the sidelines to extend the needed helping hand. This is where Dr. Dinter’s column comes in: serve as a stimulus to right again what has gone wrong in the victim’s life.
“I give the reader cause to think about the true worth of life and caring for those in need,” says the column’s author. “I share with the readers my very sad and shocking experience trying to help someone who is in the clutches of this evil phenomenon and who refuses to see the ugliness of miserable pain and suffering when the overabundance of alcohol has taken hold of what was once a body full of life.”
In addition to discussing brutally truthful and revealing issues in this public forum, Dr. Dinter offers information to help understand and take the action necessary to slay the dragon and bring body and soul back to health and peace-of-mind living.
