“If Daddy came home from work and poured himself a drink at the end of the day, she learned that the way Daddy managed stress was through alcohol.”Important information.Making drinks, Didion writes in a section about how the infant Quintana was adopted, “was what we did in our family to mark any unusual, or for that matter any usual, occasion.” In other words, alcohol was used quite frequently in that family system—to deal with both ordinary and extraordinary occasions.Capo By The Sea offers an executive rehab program complete with medical detox and a focus on dual-diagnosis issues, as well as an outpatient option in an environment that exudes the kind of beach house optimism one would expect from an Orange County recovery outfit.This So Cal rehab fosters a regimented but respectful recovery environment, where teens learn how to live sober through plenty of 12-step meetings and life-skills classes—not to mention "equine-assisted psychotherapy" and mixed martial arts.

“They’ve gotten diagnosed with a mental health disorder that doesn’t really exist once they get treatment for alcoholism,” Seppala said.
However, he said, if someone experiences depression as a teenager and begins drinking at a young age—as Didion says Quintana did—then has a recurrence of depression, “and by 30 they’re drinking alcoholically, then they might also have a recurrent depressive illness,” he said.
“The stigma of addiction is worse than the stigma of mental illness.
People with addiction quite often won’t admit they’re addicted,” says Marvin D. D., chief medical officer of Hazelden in Center City, Minn. With just one exception, the reviews overlook a critical fact about her daughter’s life.
