Answer by Barry
drug addiction counseling or alcoholism counseling typically is used for the alcoholic or drug addict. However, it may be the case that you are an alcoholic or an addict. That being said, I would suggest filling out one of those questionares online to determine if you or your husband is an alcoholic or addict.

I don’t see why it would hurt. Find out a little bit more info and fill out that pamphlet. Black outs and passing out are generally some of the symptoms of alcoholism. Good luck!
