Hi @workingdad ,
It's nice to hear back from you, and it's great to hear that you're working on setting up more of a support network for your family. I can imagine that it must feel pretty confronting to find out that your partner has been self medicating with alcohol while you're working - can I ask if you have any concerns about your child's safety? Is your partner open to chatting to your GP about what has been happening for them?
I think @Birdwings 's suggestions of looking into daycare options is a great one, and I know that when I was a parent of a small child I found playgroups to be a great way to build up a support network as well. As has already been mentioned above, your local early childhood centre/ early child health centre (they have different names depending on where you're located) can be a really great resource.
Wishing you all the best.
