Al-Anon & Alateen Meetings
Al-Anon offers support to the families of addicts. Through understanding and group support, family members are stronger. This allows them to help addicts in their lives. An addict can be abusive and destructive within the family dynamic. Members within a family might come to believe they’ve done something wrong. They may be too afraid to speak up about their feelings. Al-Anon helps members to do the right things for themselves and for the addicts. They get positive feedback and encouragement when it really counts.
Alateen is a branch of Al-Anon designed to help the children of addicts manage. It is primarily for young adults, teens, and older children.
