Al-Anon members are people, just like you, who are worried about someone with a drinking problem. Family members have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems.
And Alateen is where teens come together to share experiences to find effective ways to cope with problems.
ACoA (Adult Children of Alcoholics)
A 12-step program for adults who grew up in homes marked by alcohol abuse, drug abuse or dysfunction, and who exhibit identifiable traits that reveal past abuse or neglect.
