Alateen: Hope for Young People Effected by Another's Problem Drinking

Alateen is part of Al-Anon and is an extraordinary supportive program for young people effected by the negative consequences of living with the problem drinking of a relative or a friend.

  • Help one another understand the principle of the Al-Anon program
  • Learn how to use the Twelve Steps and Alateen's Twelve Traditions
