The parents, children, wives, husbands, friends and colleagues of problem drinkers could all be helped by Al-Anon and Alateen whether or not the drinker in their lives recognises that a problem exists. 7. What is Alateen? http://www.al-anon-ireland.org/meetings.htm Alateen is part of the Al-Anon fellowship and is for young people, aged 12 - 17 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.
