Alcohol is a part of the American culture — civilian and military. Many of us drink with others to socialize and celebrate important events. Or we sometimes drink alone to relax and unwind from a hard day at work. But along with the good times and good feelings associated with alcohol, there are well-known health risks from drinking too much over a short or a long period of time.
Everyone in a military family has to cope with deployments, relocation and the other demands of military life. But those demands may be most difficult for children, who may have to start over repeatedly in new schools, have little or no control over where they go and generally lack the coping skills of adults. Child and youth behavioral military and family life counselors understand the issues military children face and can provide support to meet their individual needs.
