My Family Gets Drunk During The Holidays. Now What?

  1. What can I do for my family members if they drink too much?
  2. What can I do for myself?

You have options

If you’re hosting, limit the amount of alcohol you serve. If you’re a guest, bring the sparkling apple cider.

Have a time limit.

Extra important: Be aware of how everyone’s getting home.

You don’t have to be “on.”

And it might not just be about the holidays.

Understand where we are.

Give and receive support

You don’t have to do this alone.
