Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to create and improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Anne B. Real.
Alcoholics and drug abusers are continually trying to get their family members and friends to help them maintain their addiction and to avoid the consequences of being intoxicated. Examples of enabling behaviors are: a spouse or relative excuses, denies, or conceals evidence of the addiction and fixes any problems caused by the intoxicated behavior; a relative provides money to the addict to allow the addict to keep an apartment when the addict has used the rent money for drugs; a relative defends an addict to family members when the addict does something irresponsible, like spending the money needed to pay the light bill on his or her drug of choice; or a relative or friend helps an addict get a job after the addict has lost his or her job for being intoxicated at work. These behaviors would ordinarily be supportive and caring. However, to the extent that they permit an addict avoid the consequences of his or her addiction, they help the addict maintain the addiction. Most addicts have family members or friends who enable their addiction.
