What is Alateen?

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.
