Alateen, part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is a fellow­ship of young people whose lives have been affected by alcoholism in a family member or close friend. We help one another by sharing our experience, strength, and hope.


We believe alcoholism is a family disease because it af­fects all the members emotionally and sometimes physically. Although we cannot change or control our parents, we can detach from their problems while continuing to love them.


We do not discuss religion or become involved with any outside organizations. Our sole topic is the solution of our problems. We are always careful to protect each other's ano­nymity as well as that of all Al-Anon and AA members.


By applying the Twelve Steps to ourselves, we begin to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will always be grateful to Alateen for giving us a wonderful, healthy program to live by and enjoy.
