Alateen is part of the Al-Anon fellowship and is for young people, aged twelve to seventeen (inclusive), who are affected by a problem drinker.
Alateen members share their ideas and experience in order to gain a better understanding of alcoholism; they learn to accept it as an illness and so lessen its impact on their lives. By removing their preoccupation with the drinker's behaviour they are able to focus on their own development and sense of identity.
Alateen groups are sponsored by two adult Al-Anon members. (Alateen sponsors are screened and registered with the Al-Anon Family Groups UK & Eire General Service Office.)
