Alateen is part of Al‑Anon Family Groups. Alateen is a fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. Alateen groups are sponsored by Al-Anon members who help the group to stay on track.
Alateens come together to:
- share experiences, strength, and hope with each other
- discuss difficulties
- learn effective ways to cope with problems
- encourage one another
- help each other understand the principles of the Al-Anon program
- learn how to use the Twelve Steps and Alateen’s Twelve Traditions.
Currently, Whatcom County Al-Anon/Alateen is working on launching an Alateen group. For more information on the meeting, see our meetings schedule.
