Alateen

ALATEEN - Top

Alateen meetings are for teens, usually age 12-20, whose life has been affected by someone else’s drinking (usually their parents, guardians, siblings or friends) and are always closed, that is, open only to teens – no adults (except the sponsor) allowed. More information can be found at Al-Anon's Alateen website.

For your teen’s protection, Alateen Groups on this list have been certified to meet the NCWSA Requirement for Alateen Member Safety.

Focus groups: Al-Anon Adult Children, Parents, LGBT, Mens, Womens

Some find it easier to address their common problems in dealing with the effects of someone else's drinking with those in similar life situations. As with all Al-Anon groups, membership remains open to anyone affected by someone else's drinking. Members of these groups are encouraged to attend other Al-Anon meetings as well. --p. 36 of the Al-Anon/Alateen Service Manual (P-24/27)

Note About Meetings

Closed Meetings
Al-Anon meetings are for anyone whose life has been affected by someone else’s drinking. If someone’s alcoholism is bothering you, please come to any “open” or “closed” meeting. “Closed” simply means it is closed to the curious, professionals (counselors, doctors, etc.) or students seeking information about Al-Anon, but don’t, themselves, have anyone in their family or friends whose alcoholism is bothering them.

At Open meetings, Al-Anon members welcome visitors seeking information about Al-Anon such as professionals, students and others who wish to learn about Al-Anon Family Groups.

Please contact the District office at 510-276-2270 for more information.
