This is a 12 Step support group for children who have an alcoholic as a parent. A support program designed specifically for teenagers who have been affected by someone else’s addiction.

Alateen is an essential resource for young people who may be living with a parent, sibling or close relative struggling with addiction. This program provides a safe and supportive environment for them to share their experiences, fears and frustrations with others who can relate.

If you’re a teenager dealing with the consequences of addiction within your family, Alateen offers the opportunity to connect with your peers who understand what you’re going through. They can offer guidance, share coping strategies and provide strength when you need it most.

It’s worth noting that Alateen is closely affiliated with Al-Anon, an organization focused on supporting the friends and family of those struggling with addiction. These are worldwide fellowships that have existed for decades, providing countless individuals with the support they need.

The history of Alateen and Al-Anon dates back to the late 1950s when a group of people recognised the significance of offering support to those affected by someone else’s addiction. Since then, these programs have grown and multiplied, reaching numerous communities worldwide. They’re highly respected within the addiction recovery community for their effectiveness in helping young people navigate the challenges they face.
