If you are bothered by someone's drinking, Al-Anon/Alateen Family Groups may be able to help. We are a fellowship of men, women, and children who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Al-Anon's program of recovery is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions as adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
The primary purpose of Al-Anon/Alateen is to help families and friends of alcoholics. Alateen is part of Al-Anon and is for young people affected by another's drinking. Members of Al-Anon/Alateen learn to live happily whether the alcoholic continues to drink or not. We learn that alcoholism is a disease and that we are not alone. By putting the focus on ourselves, we begin to reclaim our lives.

Is Alateen for You?

Sometimes the active drinking has stopped, or the active drinker may not live with us anymore. Even though the alcohol may be gone, and the alcoholic gone or recovering in AA, we are still affected. Many of us have received help from Alateen or Al-Anon.
The following questions are to help you decide whether or not Alateen is for you:
