Behind the appearance of calm and success, Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA) often bear a sad and haunted look that betrays their quietest confidence. In the chilling silence of the darkest nights of their souls, they yearn for intimacy: their greatest longing, and deepest fear.

Their creeping terror lives on as the step-child of years of emotional, and sometimes physical, family violence. Normally, children learn about intimate relationships through both loving interactions with parents, and effective parental modeling.
