Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick to get treatment for alcohol dependence

Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick announced Wednesday she is beginning treatment for alcohol dependence as she recovers from injuries suffered in a fall last week on the Washington area subway on her way to Congress.

Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., has been absent since the mishap, which left her with staples in her head, cracked ribs and a fractured spine, according to Abigail O’Brien, her congressional spokeswoman

Alcoholism is a disease and regardless of a person's personal beliefs or affiliations we should support a person who realizes they need help and seek treatment.

Addiction is a illness. Ms. Kirkpatrick faces a life long recovery. It not uncommon for an addict to relapse at least three times. I wish her well.
