Alateen Meetings are open to those ages 12 through 20 who have been affected by the family disease of alcoholism. The meetings are designed to be a safe place to share experience, strength, and hope. Meetings are run by teenagers just like you.
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
