USA Today wrote a great piece about Betty Ford's candor and advocacy. As an adult child of an alcoholic, someone who is familiar with 12-step programs professionally and personally I appreciate her courage and leadership in the field of addictions.
Visionaries start with an idea - a need that needs a solution - their idea provides that solution. Mrs. Ford was willing to share her need and dedicate herself to the solution. The Betty Ford Center saves countless lives and empowers families in recovery.
If your family is suffering with alcoholism be courageous like Betty Ford. Start with Alcoholics Anonymous® and know you are not alone.
If one of your team members, your employees or support team suffers refer them to your Employer Assistance Program.
Alcoholism hurts many. Be a leader and learn what you can do.
