My son is an alcoholic and suffers from depression and anxiety. I believe the depression/anxiety came first due to being bullied in school for being overweight. He has been self medicating for years so I am sure the alcohol has did wonders on his brain. Currently he is in IOP and on naltrexone. It has only been a week so I know I won't see any changes. Just wondering if anyone else had an adult child that was successful at getting into recovery and if there personality changed? Did their depression/anxiety lesson? Praying to get my son back one day. He isolates himself so and that isn't good either. He has no hobbies. I know he is down due to not having a girlfriend and the one he had left due to the alcoholism, etc. If his personality doesn't change, his desire to start doing things, etc. I don't know if he will ever find anyone. He surely is no fun to be around. He is miserable and doesn't give a hoot about anyone.
