Addictions in the Home (2012)

An information brochure for adults with low English literacy

This is one of a series of easy-to-read booklets prepared by Vecova Centre for Disability Services and Research (Vecova), an agency that helps people with disabilities as well as the community at large.

This booklet is aimed at a disabled person whose helper may be addicted to alcohol, drugs or gambling. The authors describe the signs of addiction; how the helper’s addiction affects the disabled person; and where to go for help.

In addition to using plain language throughout the document, the authors insert hyphens into compound words like understand and outside; offer pronunciation guides in brackets after difficult words; and provide definitions for words that might be unfamiliar to the reader.

Formerly called the Vocational and Rehabilitation Research Institute (VRRI), Vecova is based in Calgary, Alberta. For more information, please click here: http://vecova.ca/.
