What is Alateen?

Alateen is a fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.

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

Alateen is not a place:

  • For teenagers seeking help for drinking or drug problems or a therapy program
  • To complain about parents or anyone else
  • A social hangout
