(#1227) Juanita W (Louisville, KY)
7/14/1984 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 9th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: Al-Anon, Female, Story

Powerful, at times funny and tragic, Juanita's kids grew up in Alateen though initially too young to join.

Her husband's drinking and the family insanity got so bad, the police were called in to get a shotgun away from her mother who was ready to shoot him.

Afterwards, she found her seven kids in the closet where they had been hiding all night.

After he got sober, it took time to develop behaviors and routines that would allow everyone to recover.
