Alateen Al-Anon Family Groups
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.
The only requirement for Membership is that there be a relative or friend with a drinking problem. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.
Teenage groups, known as Alateen, are a vital part of the Al-Anon Family Groups program. Attendance in Alateen is restricted to teenagers seeking help with problems that arise when a parent or other close relative or friend has a drinking problem.
When District 4 AFG lists a group, at their request, there is an informal agreement that the group will abide by Al-Anon Traditions and keep its door open to all Al-Anon members.
