Alateen

Help for youth

Alateen

A fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually tennages, whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking.

Al-Anon CAN help

Al-Anon is for families, relatives and friends whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking. Many adults question whether they have been affected by alcoholism. If someone close to you has, or has had a drinking problem, the following questions may help you in determining whether alcoholism affected your childhood or present life, and if Al-Anon is for you.

Conference Approved Literature

Al‑Anon/Alateen literature is most fully understood when used in conjunction with other tools of the program. The books and pamphlets can strengthen your recovery, but they cannot substitute for the help and healing that takes place at Al‑Anon meetings in the context of a complete recovery program.

The 12 Steps

In Al-Anon, we strive for an ever-deeper understanding of these steps, and pray for the wisdom to apply them to our lives.

Alateen Resources

Break the cycle. There is help. Join one of our groups. You are not alone.

Outreach Resources

Alateen

Al-Anon for Teens

Alateen is a fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. Break the cycle. There is help. Join one of our groups. You are not alone. This is where teens in families of alcoholics and drug abusers can go to find help.

Young People Come Together To:

  • share experience, strength and hope with each other.
  • discuss their difficulties.
  • learn effective ways to cope with their problems.
  • encourage one another.
  • help each other understand the principles of the Al-Anon program.

Alateen Members Learn:

  • compulsive drinking is a disease.
  • they can detach themselves emotionally from the drinker’s problems while continuing to love the person.
  • they are not the cause of anyone else’s drinking or behavior.
  • they cannot change or control anyone but themselves.
  • they have spiritual and intellectual resources with which to develop their own potentials, no matter what happens at home.
  • they can build satisfying and rewarding life experiences for themselves.

Is someone's drinking getting to you?

Alateen is for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking.  These questions are to help you decide whether Alateen is for you.

 

Meetings

Alateen members meet in church halls, school rooms or other sutiable places (many times in the same building as an Al-Anon group, but in a separate room).  Meetings are held throughout the Bay Area.  Find a Meeting....

 

Alateen Literature

Members are encouraged to read Al-Anon and Alateen Conference-Approved Literature and materials. Written from members’ personal sharings, these recovery tools can help young people deal with their problems.

Al-Anon and Alateen has three sets of guiding principles that are referred to as our Three Legacies. These Legacies were adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. The Legacies include:
