Alcohol Addiction Recovery
Alcoholism is unfortunately common among abuse victims. Alcohol addiction recovery can be very tough.
However, life underwriters are quite willing to forgive past risky behavior - if they can be persuaded the alcohol abuse is truly a thing of the past.
For example, someone who drank extensively - but went through an alcohol addiction recovery program and goes to AA every week - has a lot going for them. Their road to recovery can be seen as compensation for their prior issues.
