One method to recovery from alcoholism is for society to acknowledge there is a problem. Right now as long as the 'problem' is somewhere other than Rez town, Arizona, there "is no" alcohol problem. It is Gallup's problem, it is Farmington's problem.The tribe could fix 75% of the problem by allowing alcohol on the rez. DWI would drop, death by exposure would drop, pedestrian deaths would drop.
Until the Father, the Mother, the Navajo community acknowledges the problem and takes responsibility for it, then the Navajo Nation is as much the culprit to alcoholism followed by homelessness in Farmington.
In my experience however, I somehow held 'responsible' for 'sending' a relative to jail (even after 4 court appearances) for drunken driving….not once, twice, thrice, but FOUR x's. Yet per the family it was my fault why the relative had to go to jail because he broke his plea agreement.
A simple example of how far the Navajo society has to go in taking responsible action for their members.
