Alateen is for teenage relatives and friends of alcoholics. 

We believe alcoholism is a family disease that affects everyone in the family.  Alateen meetings are attended by 12-17 year olds, they meet to share their experiences of having, or having had, a problem drinker in their lives.  They help and support each other.

By attending meetings, young people gain an understanding of the illness and feel the benefits of realising they are not alone.
