Olivia admitted that she has started to drink and typically when she goes to school during lunch she will have a drink to help her get through the rest of the day. She also reports sneaking drinks into her lemonade at home so that her husband and children do not know she is drinking.

Olivia stated her husband is very angry with her and wants her to quit school and just “yells at me to get out of bed.” She states that her eight year old daughter helps with the two year old, that she watches her so I can do my homework, and gets her ready in the morning. She stated her two year used to go to day care but now stays at home seeing her husband is always home. Olivia states this is part of the problem “so I go to school and don’t want to go home so I go to the bar instead. This is the real problem, if I am not home I don’t do my school work, this is why I am so far behind.” Olivia states her six year old is very quiet and keeps to herself and that she is worried about her the most. That her teachers say that she is not doing well in first grade and has no interest in making friends or doing well in class. Olivia stated “she is just like her mom.”
