  1. About this service

    Alateen is a support group for young people (12 - 17yrs old) who have been affected by alcoholic friends and family.

    Alateen is a place where members come together to:

    • share experiences, strength, and hope with each other to find effective ways to cope with problems.
    • discuss difficulties and encourage one another
    • help each other understand the principles of the Al-Anon program through the use of the Twelve Steps and Alateen’s Twelve Traditions

    Alateen is not a place:

    • For teenagers seeking help for drinking or drug problems or a therapy program
    • to complain about parents or anyone else.
    • A social hangout.
