Narconon Louisiana Contributes To Ongoing National Alcohol Awareness Campaign
Narconon Louisiana contributes to the ongoing National Alcohol Awareness Campaign sponsored by sharing a recent graduate’s story of how they overcame alcoholism that started with underage drinking.
D.C. states, “I used to bartend and almost every night I would go through a bottle of tequila. On the weekends, I would also get really drunk after work which was about 3 o’clock in the morning.”
“During that era of my life there wasn’t a lot of time where I could remember what was going on in my life. I missed my children’s events in school. I missed spending time with my family. My whole life seemed to revolve around alcohol and because of that, all of my responsibilities fell, work, family…everything. I only cared about alcohol.”

Mothers Against Drunk Driving reports that children are more likely to drink if at least one member of the family drinks each week. The most common age for a first drink is 12 – 13 years old, usually celebrating a special occasion with adults. Because of this, it is important to address addiction before young children are exposed to and are affected by alcoholism.
“At Narconon Louisiana we encourage people to seek treatment for alcohol addiction before it consumes their family and their life. In D.C.’s case we have been able to help him break the cycle of parent to child alcoholism. He is on the lookout to help his children and prevent them from partaking in underage drinking,” says Cathy Steiner, Executive Director of Narconon Louisiana.
