Why should I attend Alateen?

 


 

Alateen: hope and help for younger family members and friends of alcoholics

 


 

It’s very difficult when a parent, stepparent, grandparent, friend, sibling, or any one else in one’s life has a drinking problem. It affects how young people are treated and it shapes their world. Alateen meetings are where teens can find support and understanding from people their own age who are going through similar difficulties.

Alateen is part of the Al-Anon Family Groups; Al-Anon meetings are for anyone affected by someone else’s drinking. If there’s no Alateen meeting available to you, you are always welcome to attend an Al-Anon meeting.

You are invited to listen to teens talk about Alateen, read the Alateen newsletter, or take a quiz to help you decide if Alateen might be for you.
